Take the 1:5:10:365 challenge: Do one thing – for 5 to 10 minutes – 365 days a year to make our home and planet environment better.

1:5:10:364 EcoTip: EPA’s EnergyStar program doesn’t rate clothes dryers because they are all about the same. There is one important solar exception which unfortunately has been banned from a number of communities.

Suggested Review:

Consider using a clothes line whenever weather permits and use your clothes dryer only when necessary. During winter the temperature only needs to be a few degrees above freezing in order to dry clothes. A slight breeze also helps speed the drying.

Although all clothes dryers use about the same amount of energy to do the same thing, it is important to keep them operating properly. Clogged lint screens or improper installations can waste lots of energy. These issues have been covered in other posts.
