The Energy (super)Star
January 4, 2008
Wowie! A singing washer/dryer combo, and it’s mine. All mine!
Husband and I purchased an energy- and space-saving w/d combo for Christmas. It arrived today, and despite the arduous unpacking and installation process (which included approximately 37 phone calls to my father and some Shamu-worthy waterspouts from the hot and cold snaky pipes), the LG ventless w/d is tumbling a load of washables right now! Not only is it Energy Star–rated, it’s tiny.
See the transformation:
Laundry Closet, Before
Laundry Closet, After (No More Behemoth)
See? Lovely! It uses less water, and, because it uses super-scientific condensation drying technology — which drags moisture from the wet clothes and runs it through a heat exchanger and back through the tumbling drum — it saves bundles of kilowatts over conventional dryers. It’s remarkably quiet, too, especially when you are listening to Pagliacci in the background.
Wash in good health, all!
