Energy Tip of the Week 18: Get the Most Out of Your Dishwasher!

  • Wash only full loads to get the maximum use of energy, water, and detergent every time.


  • Air dry dishes by using the air-dry option or propping the door open after the final rinse.


  • Run your dishwasher at night in the summer to reduce daytime heat buildup in the kitchen and help prevent blackouts.


  • Replacing your dishwasher with an Energy Star qualified model could save you 10% in energy costs per year!
