What do ENERGY STAR® and ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient mean for clothes dryers?

What do ENERGY STAR® and ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient mean for clothes dryers?
What do ENERGY STAR® and ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient mean for clothes dryers?



The ENERGY STAR® program was established in 1992 by EPA to provide simple, credible, and unbiased information that consumers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions about energy efficiency. Since 2009, EPA and the Department of Energy have been working together to implement the program.


Since 1992, ENERGY STAR® and its partners helped American families and businesses save more than 4 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity and achieve over 3.5 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas reductions, equivalent to the annual emissions of more than 750 million cars. In 2018 alone, ENERGY STAR® and its partners helped Americans avoid $35 billion in energy costs.


EPA and DOE determine the criteria for energy efficiency in a wide range of products. The products that meet these criteria can display ENERGY STAR® symbol. Moreover, every year the best-in-class products that meet a tighter set of criteria are recognized as that year’s ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient products. Read on below for details of these two symbols.





What is the significance of an ENERGY STAR® symbol on a dryer?

ENERGY STAR® certified dryers include several innovations that reduce energy consumption and improve performance.


One of the most important features of modern dryers that improve its energy efficiency is sensor drying. Sensor drying, as opposed to timed drying, saves precious energy by using moisture sensors and automatically shutting off when clothes are dry.

The energy efficiency of dryers are calculated with a formula that takes into account the energy consumption of the appliance and its drying capacity. Another criteria is to have a maximum cycle time of 80 minutes. 


All Beko dryers are ENERGY STAR® certified, so you can’t go wrong with a Beko.




What does “ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient” mean?

ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient is a distinction by EPA to recognize products that deliver cutting edge energy efficiency along with the latest in technological innovation. In another words, ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient products not only care for your wallet and the environment but also excel in their performance.

Products that meet a tighter set of criteria are awarded with the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient symbol. Overall, ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient certified products consume less energy compared to ENERGY STAR® certified products.


In addition to the standard "Normal" cycle, ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient certified products  are also tested with the "Maximum Dryness" setting and are required to be energy efficient in this category as well.


This means, ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient dryers not only consume much less energy than ENERGY STAR® certified dryers but are also proven to do it in every circumstance. It does not get better than this!


Beko's ventless Heat Pump dryers are ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient certified thanks to their innovative technology which helps conserve energy by creating a closed loop system and reusing the warm air inside, instead of venting the hot air off and consuming more energy to heat new air.
