Energy Saving Tips

No Cost / Low Cost

  • 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

Save Even More

  • Shopping for a new dishwasher? Choose an ENERGY STARĀ® qualified dishwasher. ENERGY STARĀ® 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
