Dishwasher: energy costs

Did you know...

  • An average dishwasher cycle lasts for 2 hours and costs 17p each time it's  used. 
  • An average dishwasher used 5 times a week costs £42 a year to run. 

Loop Saving Tips

  • If the average family used the economy setting on their dishwasher five times a week, this could add up to savings of £9 a year.
  • Using the half-load program saves around a quarter of the water and energy of a normal cycle, so it's much more efficient to wait until the dishwasher is full.
