    That depends on what washer and dryer you're using. I'd say, do it at the same time so they can use the amount they are going to use, but in a shorter time. You can test it, for one billing period use them at the same time, then the next one, don't. Then you should have a clear view of the bill.

    I ask you a question:  Did you think about your question before you asked it?  If you had, you would have realized that they each use what they use, whether they are on at the same time or not.

    that's why i asked the question. if they both use "x" kw's of electricity individually...is there any science that would indicate they use more when used together? i am trying to prove a pt to another party who claims so.

    There are several reasons why an electrical appliance may cost more to operate at one time as opposed to another time.   Many electric providers have rates available for different times of the day.  During the highest use hours, the rates are... read more

    Do it at the same time. I would also recommend you switch of your gyser when everyone has used hot water. unplug the anything u a are not using. Switch off the lights in rooms you are not in. Have you thought of using solar power.  It is way cheap and you can slash your electricity bills by 89% or even eliminate it completely. Our electricity used to be cut because we couldn't afford to pay the electricity bill sometimes, now we use solar power and man, are we glad we changed it.  Yo can do it yourself to avoid paying thousands of dollars. Believe me you can do it way cheaper. read my report and see for yourself. Everyone avoids solar panels but they really save you money in the long run. It is an investment you have to think about. In the end you wont worry about high electricity bills. Believe me!!!

    Install solar panels yourself :

    or click my profile to read more and find links and then decide. You will be shocked how cheap it is to Do It Yourself

    Simply unplug any unused electronics. Even unused electronics are plugged in they are still using electricity which means your being charged unnecessairly. There is a term in which is coined for this scenerio, "phantom energy" !
