Energy & Appliances

Choosing an energy efficient washing machine over a standard washing could save you hundreds of dollars off your electricity bill and reduce your carbon footprint.

  • Wash in cold water, because washing in warm water uses up to 10 times more energy.
  • Use the economy setting and adjust the water level to suit the load size that you are washing.
  • Wash a full load rather than several smaller loads.
  • Spin the clothes on as high a speed as possible.

If you’re looking to purchase an energy efficient washing machine:

  • Look for washing machines that have a cold-water wash cycle and load sensing technology.
  • Consider a front loader washing machine as these are generally more energy efficient and use less water.
  • Look for models with a programmable timer or delay start function to enable you to run the machine at cheaper off-peak rates.
  • Go to energyrating.gov.au/calculator to compare running costs of similar sized washing machines.
