Need a new washing machine and don’t know what to buy? It is hard to find a washer that is low energy and water usage and the right size.

New machines are quite technologically advanced so they can effectively clean clothes with just cold water, a great development that can save your energy consumption by up to 80%!

Another energy saving feature is the delay start- you can delay your washing cycle to come on during off peak hours. The bigger the machine then the more the costs, however with a bigger machine you should reduce the number of loads.

You can check out the efficiency of your new machine by the star rating- the more stars the more efficient the machine is.

Front load machines are more expensive than top loaders and they use up to 70% less water- but if you opt for a top loader then you will generally get shorter wash cycles and you can control the water level.

The decision is yours…
