Dryers & Washing Machines – Even Jerks Can Save the World


Dryers and washing machines are some of the worst energy guzzlers.

It makes a heck of a lot of sense for you to spend time to figure out how to minimize their use.

Not only does this save you a packet, it does the world a good lot of good.

A pretty good lot of good.

Read on.

Just by being careful and smart, we can easily do with less energy consumption for our dryers and washing machines.

 

Just imagine:

If each household reduces the use of dryer and washing machine each by about 15 minutes every day, that would be about 2 kWh per household. If 500 million households could accomplish this reduction, that would be about 1 billion kWh reduced per day, or about 400 billion kWh reduced per year.

The world consumes a total of about 20000 billion kWh of electricity every year.

The above actions on dryers and washing machines alone would cut down the world’s electricity consumption by about 1.5%.

1.5% reduction in energy use and perhaps CO2 emissions. A stunning feat, given that no one is losing any comfort anywhere along the way.
