Tips for a More Sustainable Home
Updated: May 2, 2022
Living sustainably requires more than just easy DIY hacks around the home. While shutting off lights and not letting the tap water run for too long are great starts, eco-friendly living starts with long-term investments. That means energy-efficient appliances that help reduce your overall carbon footprint. Not sure where to start? We’ll walk you through some of our favorite appliances from Bosch.
For example, Bosch compact laundry pairs feature smart, eco-friendly washers that save water and dryers with heat pump drying technology, recently recognized by ENERGY STAR as “Most Efficient” in 2022. With no heating element, the dryer condenses moisture into a water tank and recycles the warm air to dry your clothes more efficiently. You can also use the delay-start function to run the washer at the time of day that’s most cost effective to do so.
Moving to the kitchen, cut back on food waste with top refrigeration solutions. The Bosch French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator is a great option, equipped with freshness technologies to extend the life of your groceries. From customizable humidity and temperature drawers to rearrangeable shelving, you won’t have to feel guilty throwing out those berries that you forgot about - the FarmFresh System actually keeps your food fresh for up to 3x longer.
While we're on the topic of food, don't let your stovetops turn the heat up on your energy bills every time you cook! Traditional gas and electric cooktops use radiant energy to heat your food indirectly, whereas induction cooking uses electromagnetic energy to cook your meals directly, for faster, more sustainable cooking. Select Bosch Wall Ovens, too, include the EcoChef feature to help reduce energy while delivering delicious results.
And lastly, when it's time to do the dishes, skip the hand washing and pre-rinsing and let a Bosch dishwasher do the dirty work for you. These ENERGY STAR-certified machines can save you 3,870 gallons of water over their lifetime, which is impressive compared to standard dishwashers!
