#5 Install a TrickleStar® DryerSaver™️
Drying clothes with an electric clothes dryer is especially power intensive. Many older electric clothes dryers are installed with simple timers and have no humidity sensors, so they run for much longer times than needed, wasting power and spoiling clothes. Many newer electric clothes use old generation temperature and humidity sensors which are less accurate and can foul, again leading to wasteful over-drying. A TrickleStar® DryerSaver™️
is a simple retrofit device to all-electric clothes dryers and prevents overdrying and reduces energy bills.
To save even more energy, ensure your dryer exhaust duct is cleaned regularly
a) to reduce the risk of a duct fire and
b) to speed up drying times with good ventilation.
