How to Save Energy Washing Dishes
Dishwashers are household appliances most of us feel like we can’t live without. Despite their usefulness, the amount of energy dishwashers use translates into cost in both energy and water. If you’re looking to save money on your utility bills, it’s worth considering ways to use your dishwasher more efficiently.
If you’re in need of a dishwasher repair in Northern Colorado or the Front Range area, contact Jim & Dave’s Appliance to get your appliances repaired and working. Here are four helpful tips to save energy and money washing dishes.
Use A Dishwasher
If you have a dishwasher, use it. Dishwashers are much more efficient in saving energy than hand-washing dishes that use heaps of water in the process.
Use Cold Water
Hot water requires more energy than cold water. By washing your dishes in cold water, your dishes will still get clean and save you money and energy in the long run.
Scraping dishes before washing them removes food particles that can clog your dishwasher, making it less efficient. Be sure to scrape, but not rinse the dishes while doing this, cutting down on water use and energy consumption.
Let Dishes Air-Dry
Instead of using your dishwasher’s dry setting, try air-drying your dishes. This will save energy and will help to keep your dishes from getting water spots.
