These days, everyone is in the market to be more energy efficient. Not only is going green the new trend, it’s also good for your wallet. There are many ways to increase the energy efficiency of your home or business. For starters, try replacing old appliances with new, energy-efficient ones. Of course, that’s easier said than done. New appliances cost big bucks, and the new trend in energy efficiency has ushered in a new wave of high-efficient appliance models to choose from. The good news is that instead of spending countless hours researching and weeding through all the options, you can rely on Energy Star.
What is Energy Star? Most people know the name from the label on their washing machine. Actually, Energy Star is a program that was formed by a collaboration of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. The goal of the program is to help people save money and the environment using energy-efficient products and practices. The program has put its distinctive label on numerous appliances to help consumers choose efficiency. By using Energy Star appliances, Americans saved a total of almost $18 billion on energy bills in 2010.
Appliances with the Energy Star label have met strict energy-efficiency guidelines, so you can be confident that they will contribute significantly to making your home or building more efficient. Homes and businesses can qualify to earn the label too! For more information on how to earn the label, visit the Energy Star website.
