Include A Dishwasher In Your 203K Streamline Mortgage

Many people assume that washing dishes by hand saves hot water. However, washing dishes by hand several time a day can actually be more expensive than operating an energy-efficient dishwasher. You can consume less energy with an energy-efficient dishwasher when properly used and when only operating it with full loads.

This is reason enough to consider including a dishwasher in your 203k streamline mortgage.  That, and your teenager will love (owe) you since they no longer have to do dishes by hand!

If the home you’re renovating already has a dishwasher; here are some things to consider:
Trim your utility bills — Do you have a dishwasher made before 1994? If so, you’re paying an extra $40 a year on your utility bills compared to owning a new ENERGY STAR qualified model. Replace one of these old dishwashers with ENERGY STAR and save enough money to pay for dishwasher detergent all year.

  • Save loads of water — A dishwasher built before 1994 wastes more than 10 gallons of water per cycle. A new, ENERGY STAR qualified dishwasher will save, on average, 1,300 gallons of water over its lifetime.
  • Save the environment — Nearly 70 percent of U.S. electricity is generated by burning coal and natural gas, which releases greenhouse gasses and other air pollutants into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change and air quality problems. ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers use less energy than conventional models, which helps reduce air pollution and combat global climate change. By reducing water consumption, ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers also help protect our lakes, streams, and oceans.
