Avoid using the heat-dry, rinse-hold and pre-rinse features. Instead use your dishwasher’s air-dry option.
Operate your dishwasher with a full load only and use the energy-saving cycle.
Avoid rinsing dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Just scrape food and empty liquids.
Check and clean drains and filters regularly to ensure efficient operation.
Shopping for a new dishwasher? Choose an ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwasher. ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers use at least 40 percent less energy than other models. They also use much less water. Saving water helps protect the NWT's water supplies.
Wash dishes by hand, but don't keep the water running to rinse -- fill a sink with clean water instead.
