Is Electric Drying Always Worth It?

Conservation, home savings, IDT Energy ,

Energy companies like IDT Energy can attest to the fact that your appliances and electronics are responsible for around 20% of your energy bills. Here are a few tips for you to lower the costs with little effort. First of all, try air drying your dishes instead of using your dishwasher’s drying cycle. Be sure to clean off the lint filter in the dryer after use to maintain proper air circulation. Why not consider using a clothes line on sunny days instead of running your dryer at all? Air-drying is actually recommended by clothing manufacturers for certain fabrics. If you choose to use your dryer nonetheless, make sure not to over-dry the clothes. Also, dry towels and heavier cottons in different load, separated from light-weight clothes.
