Langley Township offers appliance rebates

Langley residents looking to purchase a new washing machine can save up to $200 on the most energy efficient clothes washers that will also help them save on electricity costs in the long-run.

Until the end of June, customers can receive $100 rebates each from both BC Hydro Power Smart and Langley Township.

Energy efficient clothes washers save both water and energy. An ENERGY STAR® front-loading washing machine can cut water use by nearly 40 per cent and electricity use by up to 25 per cent, when compared to a conventional top loading machine.

A clothes dryer typically uses the most electricity of any appliance in your home, after the refrigerator. An ENERGY STAR® clothes dryer is 20 per cent more efficient than standard models, with moisture control settings and end-of-cycle detection to reduce drying times and energy consumption.

Refrigerators are one of the most energy consuming appliances in your home. Replacing a fridge that is 10 years old or older with an ENERGY STAR® model could save you $40 a year on electricity costs.

BC Hydro is also offering $100 mail-in rebates provincewide for the purchase of select ENERGY STAR® dryers and refrigerators.

Some retailers and manufacturers are matching the BC Hydro rebate, bringing the potential savings up to $300. All Home Depot locations are doubling rebates on qualifying ENERGY STAR® appliances and select Best Buy locations are also offering double rebates on qualifying Samsung ENERGY STAR® appliances.
