Reduce Energy Consumption: Full Laundry Loads

Here’s an interesting fact: a family of four will need to wash approximately 5 loads of laundry in an average week. In total, that equates to 130,000 watts of energy the washer will use each year. Sure, this is a necessary convenience for modern living – unless you’re ok wearing the same clothes for the entire week – but one way to minimize that consumption is to simply wait for a full load of laundry to build up before you run the washer. If you can cut back at least one load per week, that cuts your energy usage by 20%.
