Best Buy is saving the planet and your bank balance one washer and dryer at a time with the latest in energy and water efficient appliances. Save the planet and yourself some green by upgrading your washer and dryer today. With an Energy STAR Certified washer and dryer like the LG Twin Washer and SideKick, you can celebrate Earth Day 2016 like a boss.

If you aren’t using Energy STAR certified appliances it’s costing you.

Energy STAR certified Washers use less energy and can save you an average of $40 per year on your utility bills compared to standard models. The more energy your appliances use the higher your utility bills. I don’t know about you but I appreciate all the savings I can get. As my utility bill increases so does the feeling I am throwing money away. It pays to be energy efficient. If you own a vintage washer (built before 2003) the outdated technology alone is costing you, on average, $180 a year! What could you do with savings like that? I know what I could do…

Compared to standard models, full sized ENERGY STAR certified washers can save more than 3,000 gallons of water per year. Water is precious. Where will we fish if we run out of water? According to the latest research, at our current water consumption rate more than two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages by 2025. Just imagine all the water we could save if we all upgraded to the latest in laundering technology!

Energy STAR certified Dryers use 20 percent less energy than conventional models. With features like sensor drying and low heat settings you can further your savings. I prefer sensor drying to timed drying as it shuts your machine off automatically when the clothes are dry. This not only saves you money by reducing the time your dryer is operating it also prolongs the life of your clothing. Features such as low heat settings combined with sensor drying ensure maximum efficiency. Did you know low heat settings use less energy?

Have you considered gas? While eighty percent of dryers in the US are electric, if you have the option, consider using a gas dryer to save money and reduce your environmental impact.

My favorite features of the LG Twin Washer and SideKick are their large capacity and the TurboWash setting. With the LG Twin Washer and SideKick I can do two loads at one time. With TurboWash I can save up to 30 minutes on larger loads. Washing and drying more clothes in less time means I get to do more of what I’d rather be doing than laundry, like fishing. With all the money I save I can buy more tackle and by conserving water I can enjoy my favorite fishing holes for years to come. By devising ingenious ways of helping guys like me divide and conquer their laundry, LG is making the world a better place one innovation at a time.
