When you’re buying appliances for the home, whether you’re replacing or starting new, it is imperative to go for products that are energy efficient. Many times, you can look for the Energy Star label, which shows the buyer that the product will use 10-50% less energy + water than standard models. Importantly, if 10% of homes used Energy Star-qualified appliances, the change would be like planting 1.7 million new acres of trees. This w+d combo is Energy Star certified, but remember to do the same with TVs, microwaves, refrigerators, kitchen appliances, and every other energy-sucking apparatus you use in the home.
The washer is the world’s first fabric sensing washer. Here are some other handy features in the Eco Intuitive: auto out of balance correction, auto water level, auto lint disposal, controlled temperature mixing chamber, delayed start (from 15 minutes – 18 hours), time remaining display screen, eco-water saver cycle, "How Dirty" option, 5 rinse options, 6 wash temperature controls, load sensing, lid lock, Eco Active wash system, and 3 spin speeds and unlimited agitator actions. Its sophisticated design makes washing clothes a simple task. The genius, intelligent wash machine constantly monitors and calculates the wash action and water load to suit the fabric and load. You’ll love the How Dirty button, too.
The dryer is the world’s first large capacity top loading dryer with auto-sensing that makes sure all the clothes are evenly dried. That top loading design sure makes laundry a breeze, it’s no more difficult than drag and drop on your computer. The Eco Intuitive dryer also has a high airflow fan to ensure a faster drying process (without overheating your clothing). And it has many of the same options that the Eco Intuitive washer has–technology that takes that labor out of laundry!
As for $, the washer is $799 and the dryer is $789 ($809 for the gas dryer). So while you can find Energy Star w+d’s out there, and that’s important, with the Eco Intuitive combo, we’re talking about a new level of smart technology. By Fisher + Paykel USA.
