If you have a small household, a portable washer and dryer will be sufficient. If you have a large family, consider installing an attached washer/dryer unit in your laundry room or basement.
We also recommend buying two matching units so that if one breaks down you’re not without the other for several days—and then paying to repair or replace both at once.
How do I know if my home is Energy Star certified? What makes Energy Star appliances energy efficient?
Energy Star appliances use 30 percent less energy than typical models on the market today, which means they help save money on utility bills while protecting our environment from harmful emissions. They are designed with features such as ENERGY STAR qualified motors and electronic controls that offer enhanced performance and efficiency over traditional products. The EPA has granted Energy Star certification to more than 100 different types of equipment including dishwashers, clothes dryers, refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners—even water heaters! In addition to using less electricity during operation these devices provide better temperature control by automatically maintaining set temperature settings longer after turning off the power-saver feature (providing greater savings). Lastly they tend to last longer due to improved quality construction methods that involve fewer moving parts resulting in decreased wear on motor-bearing components over time; therefore saving even more money per year compared to conventional models.* For more information about how much an ENERGY STAR appliance can save you visit www.energystar
