Companies like IDT Energy know that by using your appliances wisely and efficiently, you can lower your energy bill every month. For example, your washing machine uses a lot of water and energy to run. Be sure to only run the wash when you have a full load, this way you will only be using as much energy as needed. Also, take advantage of the fact that most of the time your clothes do not need to be washed in hot water. 85-90% of the energy used while doing laundry goes towards heating the water. By turning the dial on your machine to cold, you save money, save energy, and support the environment. If you are considering a new machine, choose a front loading machine. These machines use 40% less water, and 50% less energy.
