My Whirlpool Savings – Energy, Money, and Time

I LOVE my Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer and Dryer and use them almost every day!  Not only do my washer and dryer deliver fresh, clean clothes to me after each cycle, they also save me energy, money and time.  As a mom of three on a budget, I can always use savings where I can get them!  So, how does the Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer and Dryer offer me savings?

The first type of savings is with Energy.  The Duet is the industry’s most resource efficient laundry pair.  Even the dryer is energy efficient.  How is the dryer efficient?  The dryer works in tandem with the washer to make the entire process more efficient by using faster spin speeds in the washer and sensors in the dryer.  The washer uses as little as 11.5 gallons of water per load and exceeds minimum federal standard for energy selling requirements by more than 160% on average.

The second type of savings is with Money.  With the Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer and Dryer, you can save as much as $3,300 in lifetime energy costs and for every household that uses the new Whirlpool Duet laundry pair, 12,857 gallons of water could be saved every year.

The third type of savings is with Time.  The Washer’s EcoBoost option takes the guesswork out of efficiency by reducing the water temperature and increasing agitation duration so the decrease in one (temperature) is offset by the increase in the other (tumbling) to deliver the same results while using less energy.  The dryer also has an eco-cycle that helps save energy.  The 7.4 cubic foot dryer lets you dry more at once, meaning your laundry is done faster and more efficiently.  Are you still using timed drying cycles?  You don’t have to with the Duet Front Loading Dryer!  New dryers use sensors to determine when clothes are dry and once they sense the clothes are dry, they turn themselves off.  How cool is that?!!!

I am so happy to be the owner of the Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer and Dryer.  I love that the pair save me energy, money, and time – making laundry time something I actually look forward to doing!  A big thanks to Whirlpool and Mom Central for this blogging opportunity!

I wrote this review while participating in a test-drive campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Whirlpool and received a complimentary Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer to facilitate my review.
