ENERGY STAR Commercial Dishwashers: Benefits and Cost-Saving Tips

ŸFrom an operational standpoint, dishwashers are one of the most expensive pieces of equipment in your commercial kitchen. Energy efficiency is a sound business practice that improves profitability, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and conserves natural resources. Choosing ENERGY STAR qualified equipment helps you save energy and water, and boosts your bottom line while helping to protect the environment.

Commercial dishwashers that have earned the ENERGY STAR are on average 25 percent more energy and water efficient than standard models. Qualified models must meet maximum water consumption requirements during the final rinse, utilize heat recovery and dish load sensors, and use less energy while idling between wash cycles. 

<-- Depending upon the commercial dishwasher you select, you could save an average of $1,300 - $4,100 annually on utility costs. In addition, you could save an average of 52,000 gallons of water per year, which on average translates to more than $200 per year savings on your water bills. Learn more about ENERGY STAR qualified commercial dishwashers.

Cost-Saving Tips

  • Run fully loaded dish racks through the dish machine. Cutting wash cycles could save you hundreds of dollars annually.
  • Pay attention to your dishwasher’s pressure gauge—if it’s showing pressure above 25 psi, there is a good chance you are using much more water than is necessary. Most dishwashers require only around 20 psi.
  • If you have a conveyor-style dishwasher, make sure you are using it in auto mode, which saves electricity by running the conveyor motor only when needed.
  • Look for the ENERGY STAR.
  • Turn off at night.
  • Replace torn wash curtains and worn spray heads.
  • Repair leaks.
