Can anyone tell me what the energy star clothes dryers do better or how much they are supposesd to save. Dryers are pretty simple. how do you make a more efficient element and drive motor or am I missing the obvoius?
I may be wrong, but I think a moisture sensor is part of it. The theory is that the sensor monitors the exhaust and turns the dryer off when the clothes are dry rather than letting it run too long to "make sure" they're dry.
Another good way to save energy is to not buy a 3000 sq. ft. home when most families can make do with half that. No house is "green" if it's way bigger than you need.
I know this post is a couple months old but heres my two cents anyway First if your home is all electric check with the power company for a reduced rate for all electric home second get the plans and build a small windmill for electric power.Mine is almost done and the electric company has to but any excess so I hope to make a buck or two but I really doubt it
