A Washer Rebate Can Help You Replace Your Inefficient Machine

Washer rebate programs are designed to encourage home owners and those in the laundry business to upgrade their equipment earlier than they otherwise would, in the knowledge that this will save on the amount of energy being consumed. Many electrical appliances manufactured today are far more efficient than those of even the recent past and washing machines are among those where substantial savings can be made. If you choose the right model you can be saving money right from the time of purchase and you can claim an energy saving rebate at the same time.

To understand why the rebates are offered and what the motivation of the authorities might be in offering such rebates it is necessary to understand the situation the energy industry is in. Pressure from environmental groups to reduce energy consumption is coming at the same time as increasing demand from many sectors of the business community.

The constant need to be processing data electronically combined with an increasing population and the use of more electronic devices is creating a demand for electricity that is proving hard to satisfy. There are fears that this demand will continue to increase dramatically in the coming years.

Every time an energy provider or the government has to upgrade the infrastructure to cope with increasing levels of demand they incur a necessary and significant expense. Anything that can slow down this surge in demand has the potential to save money as well as to satisfy some of the demands made by the environmentalists.

Passing a percentage of these savings onto the consumers who can help achieve them is an obvious way of providing an incentive to those who are considering an upgrade to more energy efficient equipment. These incentives apply to washers and there is a potential to save money on new purchases.

The amount of use a residential washing machine gets obviously depends on the size of the household and whether or not any washing is done off site in public facilities. But in many family homes it can be significant. Older style machines can consume a lot of power over the course of a year and when you multiply this by the number of families in any given region you can see the pressure that this can help to exert upon the infrastructure of the energy supplier. Offering a washer rebate is one obvious way of encouraging consumers to upgrade their equipment and it is sensible to take advantage of this.

This applies to an even greater degree to those establishments who offer washing services to the public. Many of these facilities have whole rows of large machines that use a lot of electricity during a busy day.

If each machine can be replaced with one that is far more energy efficient the business will be saving money every day and there will be less pressure on the supplier. Obviously a full replacement of equipment is a major capital expense for the business and can only be done infrequently. Rebates can help the proprietor to make this important choice.

A washer rebate is only offered if the machine you are buying meets the internationally accredited Energy Star standard, which means it will be using the least amount of energy possible. The washers will be clearly marked to show that this is the case and the relevant consumption information can be found in promotional materials and on the Internet.

You will need to buy the machine for the full retail price and then submit a claim for the rebate because the suppliers need to be able to verify eligibility. You will then get your washer rebate.
