The Whirlpool® Eco Kitchen
Whirlpool brand is making it easier for builders and homeowners to integrate energy efficiency into one of the biggest energy-consuming living spaces of the home—the kitchen. The Whirlpool® Eco Kitchen, which includes the Resource Saver™ refrigerator, Resource Saver™ dishwasher, Velos® SpeedCook oven and Energy Save range, is the brand's most energy-efficiency kitchen ever.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, lighting, refrigeration and cooking are responsible for 41.5 percent of a home's energy consumption. With consumer insights in mind, Whirlpool brand wanted to offer simple ways for homeowners to reduce the impact energy and water use has on the environment and their wallets. As a result, the company identified appliances that can bring real efficiency when it comes to water, energy and cost savings to one of the most-energy-consuming rooms in the home.
