The clothes washer is typically the second largest water user inside the home, after toilets. While older traditional washers may use more than 40 gallons of water per load, new high-efficiency models use less than 18 gallons, saving more than 50% in water and energy costs. High-efficiency washers also require less detergent, are gentler on your clothes, and result in shorter drying times. The U.S EPA's Energy Star Program website certifies clothes washers to assist consumers, and has developed new criteria to label exceptional products as Energy Star Most Efficient, learn more at the EPA website.
Special Note to Retailers: Additional applications and qualifying product lists for your store can be downloaded and printed from links at the bottom of the Local Water Agency program page. Point-of-purchase display materials will be provided this spring.
