ENERGY STAR® Washers

Choosing ENERGY STAR® certified commercial clothes washers saves money and provides you with the best laundry performance possible.

Overview

ENERGY STAR certified commercial washers have more capacity than conventional top-load models with an agitator. Some front-loaders can wash over 20 pounds of laundry at once, compared to 10-15 pounds for a standard top-loader.

Most ENERGY STAR certified commercial washers are designed without an agitator, which results in a gentler wash than conventional top-load washers with agitators.

Incentives

Incentives of $125 per unit are available for ENERGY STAR washers installed in retrofits or new construction projects. Participants must have electric water heating and an electric drying unit.

Payback

After incentive, average simple payback for top-loaded and front-loaded commercial units is between two and three years.
