Are your Energy-Efficient Appliances Saving or Costing You Money?

If you’ve recently taken a stroll through your local home improvement store and perused the array of new appliances on the market, you know there is a wide range of features and options to choose from. One of the common features is a conservation mode or energy-saving setting.

On the surface, an energy-saving setting sounds like a great idea, and in many cases, we agree. However, there are some important considerations to keep in mind when deciding whether your conservation mode is saving or costing you money.

Saving Energy VS Reduced Performance

For plumbing installation appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines, an energy-saving setting can save you money in two major ways. By reducing water consumption and lowering the amount of electricity or gas being used, consumers are able to lower their costs and their impact on our environment.

In order to further lower the energy usage when running in a conservation mode, these appliances operate with reduced power. This often means less effective performance. In this case, it’s important for consumers to ask themselves if the job is getting done adequately or whether they are wasting more energy rewashing a sub-par cleaning.

Properly Using Your Appliances

Before blaming the energy-saving mode when dishes are left speckled with food, be sure you are properly using your appliance. Over-filling your appliances or using a conservation mode for heavy duty washes could be to blame. Always consult your owner’s manual before using your appliances.

Purchase the Right Appliance

At Just Right Services, we encourage all of our clients to purchase energy efficient appliances when shopping to replace old units. After all, it’s better for the environment and your wallet. Keeping that in mind, we also encourage them to research the products they are considering beyond the Energy Star Rating. Read reviews by other consumers to see whether the appliance is known for an efficient or inefficient conservation mode.

Very responsive – called to request service on a Monday morning and repairman arrived after lunch the next day. Service was excellent. Technician was professional and knowledgeable. Every step of the repair process was explained. AC unit is now working efficiently. Recommendations were made but did not push us to purchase other services or parts. Would 100% recommend!


Great HVAC Repair company! They answered when I called this morning and in the middle of Summer had a repair person out this afternoon. Our repair guy Robert May was incredibly nice, professional, and did a great job of explaining what was wrong as he fixed it. Now our AC is working perfectly!


Just Right was able to come within a few hours- helpful when the A/C is broken and its 90 degrees. The team were really nice, courteous guys who explained everything to me and provided an estimate to sign before proceeding with the work. Our A/C was up and running within an hour at a reasonable price. Thank you!
