Culprits...Number 2

As I said on Friday, 17% of our country's energy is spent residentally, which is the same amount as every operating vehicle.


Perhaps the largest contributor is your washing machine. The top load washer has not been improved since 1948. It uses too much water (45 gallons), too much detergent and more than double the energy of a front load washer.

The stats become more interesting as the front loader can be as much as twice larger, and is even gentler on your clothes.

Changing your washing machine is the easiest way to save energy, water and money residentally.
