Presented below are a few tips worth considering if you want to improve the overall efficiency of your washer and save more energy.
Learn to cold wash

In as much as it is convenient and more comfortable to use the dryer, you can always opt for line drying if you want to save some money on the energy bills. Additionally, line drying your clothes will add to the longevity of your clothes as well as that of your washer so that you won’t have to call for appliance repair Montreal services every now and then.
