Save energy by the way you dry your clothes

You can save energy and money by the way you dry your clothes. Here is how:

  • Dry your clothes outside as much as possible.

  • If you need to use the dryer, spin the clothes in the washing machine first and then use the medium instead of the high setting on your dryer.

  • Sort out heavyweight and lightweight clothing and dry separately.

  • Dry consecutive loads to take advantage of residual heat.

  • Regularly clean the filter in your dryer to ensure maximum efficiency. A blocked filter can add to running costs.

  • Do not overload or under load the dryer.
