ENERGY STAR® certified appliances

Simple Steps partners with your utility to offer instant discounts on high-efficiency washers and dryers. Find participating retailers near you for big savings.


The average American family washes about 300 loads of laundry a year. ENERGY STAR® certified washers can help you save energy and water on every load. They use about 25% less energy and 45% less water than a standard washer.

Beware of high-efficiency claims on products that are not ENERGY STAR certified. Some are simply advertising the washer’s compatibility with high-efficiency laundry detergent. Only ENERGY STAR models have been independently certified to save energy.


Your clothes dryer is one of the most energy-intensive appliances in your house. Switching to an ENERGY STAR certified model can help you use 20% less energy. Some energy-saving features to look for are:

  • Sensor drying – Advanced moisture sensors automatically stop the dryer when the clothes are dry
  • Low-heat setting – allows the dryer to run on a lower temperature a longer cycle to save energy.
