Tips to Make Your Dishwasher More Energy Efficient

Maybe you’ve decided to include a new dishwasher in your 203K mortgage.  Or, perhaps you already own an energy efficient dishwasher.  Either way, there are little things you can do to make your dishwasher more efficient and they include:


1. Save loads of water. Don’t rinse dishes before loading, and you’ll save 55,000 gallons of water over the life of the appliance. That’s also equivalent to a lifetime supply of drinking water for a family of four.


2. Load it to the max. Fill your dishwasher to its capacity, and you’ll get the maximum use of energy every time you run a load.


3. Let dishes dry naturally. Use your dishwasher’s air-dry option. If your dishwasher doesn’t have one, prop the door open after the final rinse to dry dishes.


4. Use rinse aid. Try this instead of the heated dry cycle to speed up drying time and help remove spotting on glasses.


5. Wash dishes during off-peak hours. Local utilities recommend avoiding heavy energy usage at certain times of day.


6. Run your dishwasher in the dark. Use your dishwasher at night during the summer, and it will reduce daytime heat buildup in the kitchen.
