Maximize household savings with energy-efficient ‘scratch and dent’ appliances

At Appliance Scratch & Dent Outlet in Kitchener, Ontario, you can upgrade to modern, more energy-efficient appliances without breaking the bank!

Refurbished and repacked, factory-approved “scratch and dent” appliancesfrom Appliance Scratch & Dent Outlet are new brand name appliances, but with cosmetic bumps or scratches. You could benefit from hundreds, even thousands, of dollars in savings! Add to that the additional savings on your utility bills from energy saving features on today’s appliances, and you can see a significant positive impact on your household budget.

Contemporary appliances offer many helpful features for saving money on your utility bills — water, hydro, gas — while reducing your environmental impact. For maximum energy-saving features, go with appliances with the highest possible Energy Star® rating based on stringent energy-efficiency guidelines.

For instance, today’s dishwashers use less water than washing by hand by using sensitive soil sensors to adjust the washing cycle, providing optimum cleaning with the lowest amount of hot water required for effective cleaning and sanitizing.

Modern refrigerators carry high-efficiency compressors, improved air flow and upgraded insulation for maintaining required temperatures with the lowest possible energy usage.

While laundry can put a heavy load on household energy usage, upgrading to newer models of washers and dryers can result in significant savings. Up-to-date models of washers, such as front-loaders, are designed to provide superior cleaning using less detergent, water and heat. Faster spin cycles remove higher amounts of water that can reduce drying time; some top-loading models have eliminated central agitators for more efficient wash cycles.

Modern-day dryers offer upgraded insulation, improved air circulation for faster drying, and enhanced moisture and temperature sensors for shorter, more-efficient cycles.
