Tips for Buying a Dishwasher
When buying a dishwasher you will notice that they have gotten a lot more advanced and the features they offer have been expanded and enhanced. Because of this fact, finding the best dishwasher is difficult because each will have different features. It is important to find a dishwasher that has the features you would like, but you will also want to consider the amount of energy this dishwasher will be using. Saving energy is not only a great thing to do for the environment, it is great way to save money.
The government has started to require major appliance companies to attach an EnerGuide label to every appliance. This tag will let you know what the energy cost will be for each appliance. This label will also point out Energy star dishwashers. These dishwashers will meet an energy standard set in place by the government, to show which dishwasher are the most energy-efficient. Other features you should look for in a dishwasher to keep energy costs down are listed below.
Since 85% of dishwasher energy goes to heating the water, finding a dishwasher with an ecowash or short cycle is important. This cycle will use less hot water than a normal cycle.
Another great feature is the ability to shut off the drying element in the dishwasher. Doing this will allow you to either dry the dishes by hand, or let them air dry, saving energy either way.
Smaller or more compact dishwashers will be ideal for you if you have a small family or only do very small loads. When in search for a compact dishwasher you will still want to look for the other features we mentioned in the article as well.
Knowing what you are looking for, what you need and what you want when buying a dishwasher is important, but so is knowing and understanding the energy cost. There may be times where spending a little more money up-front will save you money in the long run.
