Clothes Dryers Qualify for ENERGY STAR

Reduce your utility bill with select models

 

Facility managers of college dorms and multifamily properties can specify clothes dryers with the ENERGY STAR label.

To qualify, dryers must use approximately 20% less energy than what is required by the minimum efficiency standards effective in 2015. Look for models with these features:

  • Auto termination sensors, which more effectively end the drying cycle
  • Heat pumps that recapture hot air and pump it back into the drum, eliminating the need for ducts leading heat out of the laundry room
  • Connected functionality, which can indicate performance issues or provide the efficiency profile of different cycle selections
  • Smart grid compatible, with the option to connect the dryer with the local utility.
