Electrolux EIDW6405GT Dishwasher

The Electrolux Dishwasher EIDW6405GT is an energy efficient appliance that has earned the Energy Star rating. Energy Star is a government backed program aimed to help us protect the environment through energy efficient products and help us save money in the process. There are strict energy guidelines that products have to meet in order to earn the Energy Star rating and the EIDW6405GT has met those guidelines.

When shopping for a dishwasher most of us probably aren’t thinking about the amount of energy it takes to operate the appliance. However, if we started thinking about that energy consumption in terms of dollars we would save, we might be more likely to search for an energy efficient model. Water heating represents between thirteen and seventeen percent of residential energy consumption, which makes it the third largest energy use in homes behind heating and cooling. About 60% of the energy used by a dishwasher goes towards heating the water, so models that use less water use less energy, and save money. The Electrolux EIDW6405GT is a dishwasher that does just that.

Significant savings can result by minimizing the amount of hot water needed. Dishwashers use a built in heater system to heat the water so it can clean effectively. This Electrolux dishwasher minimizes the amount of water needed, therefore saving the energy required heat it. This new dishwasher is a top of the line item that just became available early this year.
