MAYTAG'S NEPTUNE WASHER
SAVES MONEY & RESOURCES
Maytag Neptune washer saves consumers money while using less of the earth's natural resources. The washer saves up to half the water and energy that a conventional washer uses and saves consumers up to $100 a year. * By replacing just one conventional washer with a Maytag Neptune washer, within one year, you can save more than the amount of water that one person drinks in a lifetime.
One of the subtle but powerful reasons the washer's water savings are so dramatic is its automatic water level control. This feature controls the amount of water used in the washer based on the amount and type of clothing put in the washer, giving consumers the optimal amount of water for efficient cleaning and rinsing. Research shows that this feature can help save more than 20 gallons of water per load.
In comparison to an average conventional washer based on 9 loads per week, a Maytag Neptune washer saves 6,971 gallons per year. This is compared to a figure in a quote in Robert Gardner's Water, in which he states that humans drink about 6,600 gallons of water in a lifetime.
The washer's energy savings are realized in two ways. First, most of the energy used in doing laundry is to heat the water. Since the Maytag Neptune washer uses 75 percent less hot water, it takes less energy to do a hot water wash. Secondly, during the spin cycle, the MaxExtract feature removes up to 30 percent more water from the clothes, allowing for less time in the dryer and less energy used. This also means that washer and dryer times are more closely matched.
These significant savings mean the Maytag Neptune washer will use less of the earth's natural resources and also have a direct impact on utility bills. The savings accrue load after load, year after year.
