Efficiency Smart has announced two new product rebates for your home: high-efficiency clothes dryers and advanced power strips. These two items join a list of Efficiency Smart appliances and products eligible for rebates that can help you save energy and money in your home.
Clothes Dryers: $50 rebateDid you know that a clothes dryer may use the most energy of any standard household appliance in your home? The good news is that newer, more energy-efficient clothes dryers use about 20 percent less energy than conventional models, which can help you reduce your energy use, all without sacrificing performance.
If you are in the market for a new clothes dryer, consider purchasing an ENERGY STAR certified model, which can save you up to $245 over the lifetime of the dryer. Efficiency Smart's new $50 clothes dryer rebate can help you save even more. A list of eligible clothes dryers is available on Efficiency Smart's website.
Advanced Power Strips: $10- $15 rebateMany homes have a growing number of electronics in them. From televisions to game consoles, these electronics provide entertainment that fill our days. With more and more electronics available, it can be easy to forget to turn them all off of when not in use, resulting in wasted energy. In some cases, even if you turn off the electronics, they can continue to draw power, often referred to as "phantom power." Phantom power adds more than $100 a year to the typical U.S. household, according to ENERGY STAR.
Advanced power strips are a simple way to turn off power to appliances and electronics that are in standby mode, without having to change the way you use electronics. This can help minimize the phantom power use in your home. There are multiple types of advanced power strips available for your needs.
Efficiency Smart offers a $10 rebate for an advanced power strip with six or less plugs, and a $15 rebate for ones with seven or more plugs. View Efficiency Smart's website for eligible models.
