Money Saver: Clothes Dryers

Clothes dryers consume more than $100 worth of energy per year in a typical home. The following tips will help keep dryer energy use from spinning out of control:

  1. Dry full loads; it saves energy and saves you time.

  2. Dry towels and heavy cottons separately from lighter-weight clothes.

  3. Don't over dry clothes. If your dryer has a moisture sensor, use it.
     
  4. Clean the lint filter in the dryer after every load to improve air circulation.
     
  5. Check the dryer vent regularly and keep it clean.
     
  6. Air dry clothes whenever possible; it's free and can extend the life of some fabrics.
