Key Points

  • The best time to wash clothes to save electricity is during low-demand hours.
  • Check your electric plan to determine when peak hours are, and avoid running your washer during those times.
  • It’s usually best to wash your clothes early in the morning during the summer and late at night in the winter.
  • You can also save money when doing laundry by lowering the temperature settings and using energy-efficient appliances.
