We all know how much I love Best Buy, and today there’s an even better reason! Just visit their Earth Day Homepage for incredible deals on Energy Star and water efficient appliances!
While there is a large selection of Energy Star appliances at Best Buy, the LG Twin Wash and Sidekick Laundry Pair have really piqued my interest. Before we jump into why I love these, let’s take a look at why Energy Star appliances rock my socks.
Why Energy Star?
For starters, a new ENERGY STAR certified washer uses 280 kWh of electricity. This can save you up to $40 a year on your utility bill, compared to a standard model. If you have a standard washer over 10 years old that alone costs you, on average, $180 a year.
ENERGY STAR washers also use less water – a standard machine uses 23 gallons as opposed to the 13 gallons of water per load used by an ENERGY STAR appliance. That is more than 3,000 gallons of water a year saved!
ENERGY STAR dryers use 20% less energy than their conventional counterparts and there is no sacrifice on features or performance. This is mainly because they offer sensor drying as opposed to timed drying.
Now… on to the LG Twin Wash & Sidekick.
My favorite feature is being able to do two loads at once (I have been waiting forever for this technology!) This lets get other stuff done instead of washing clothes all day. The LG Twin Wash is made with efficiency in mind. It gets more clothes cleaner, faster with its 6.6 cu. ft. capacity. The TWIN wash offers an ergonomically elevated and angled door that makes loading and unloading a breeze. Another plus is the LED control panel, it is located right on the front door so there is no reaching or hunting to find it.
The TurboWash 2.0 feature can save you up to 30 minutes on larger loads with exceptional cleaning performance. The TurboSteam technology is designed to deeply penetrate fabrics to give you even cleaner clothes and linens. Oh, and the detergent tray is made to prevent spills with the easy-to-fill recessed design.
The Sidekick can be paired with nearly any LG front load unit. Use the main unit for smaller loads to prevent water waste. With the LG SideKick pedestal washer, you can get two loads of laundry done at once, regardless of size.
The Sidekick may also be used to discretely raise your primary front-loading washer to a comfortable height. As a bonus, the SideKick matches the pedestal under your LG dryer! It has a 1.0 cu. ft. capacity perfect for tackling small loads whenever you need. It also comes with a 10-year warranty and a magnetic remote control!
