When you’re shopping for a new clothes dryer you’ll finally see the Energy Star logo on some dryers. Washing machines have long carried the Energy Star but for years dryers used about the same amount of energy and, without impressive differences in energy use, there is no Star. Consumer Reports tested six Energy Star-qualified dryers. Should you buy one? Here’s what you’ll want to know before you decide.
Dryers that qualify
Energy Star dryers can be used in regular or energy-saving mode. To earn the Energy Star a dryer must be at least 20 percent more efficient in energy-saving mode than dryers that meet the federal minimum efficiency standards for 2015.
