Smart Dishwashers

With a smart dishwasher, you can halt water leaks before they ruin your floors, be reminded when you’re low on soap and rinsing agents, or schedule loads to run while you sleep. If you pay utility time-of-use rates, ENERGY STAR certified smart appliances can lower your energy bills by shifting loads and energy-intensive operations to off-peak hours.

  • Automatically run lower-cost wash cycles for smaller loads
  • Program loads to run while you’re away, asleep, or during cooler temperatures
  • For those paying time-of-use rates, save up to 9% on usage cost each year

Smart Laundry

With smart technology, washing and drying your laundry has never been easier. Start the wash anytime, anyplace, or come home to freshly dried clothes. Some models save time and reduce wear on clothing by using artificial intelligence to adjust settings for different fabrics. Most models will send notifications when it’s time to swap loads or make repairs, such as unclogging a lint trap, which increases energy savings.

  • Look for ENERGY STAR models that use sensing capabilities to save time (and energy) on loads
  • Save on energy bills by programming smart washer settings to default to cold water and high spin speeds
  • For those paying time-of-use rates, save up to 7% on usage costs each year

Smart Refrigerators

Smart refrigerators cost substantially more than standard models but come packed with fun features, such as recipe ideas for the food you have in stock, and the ability to order groceries or create shopping lists you can send to others. They have the potential to save energy by allowing occupants to view fridge contents without opening doors, shift energy-intensive functions like defrost and ice-making to off-peak hours, or suspend those functions while you’re away from home for extended periods of time.

  • Save energy and trips to the grocery store by using your smartphone to view fridge contents
  • Look for ENERGY STAR certified models for greater efficiency
  • For those paying time-of-use rates, save up to 4% on usage costs each year
