Is it cheaper to do your washing at night?
“But for most of us, running the washing machine at night doesn’t make any difference to the cost or the amount of energy used.” So, it depends on your tariff but no: the time of day you use your washing machine isn’t going to make it cost less to run.
How do you use washing machine energy wisely?
- Wash with cold water.
- Wash full loads when possible.
- Use the high-speed or extended spin cycle in the washer.
- Dry heavier cottons separately.
- Make use of the “cool down” cycle.
- Use lower heat settings to dry clothing.
- Use dryer balls.
What is the most energy efficient setting on a washing machine?
Wash with a cold cycle
This is the easiest way to reduce electricity use, regardless of kind of washing machine you have. Washing with a cold cycle can save you more than 80% of your energy consumption and cost. This is because most of the energy is used just to heat up the water in warm washes.
