What Are ENERGY STAR Appliances?

ENERGY STAR® is a program and symbol backed by the government and designed to help homeowners and businesses choose products and services that are energy-efficient. Launched in 1992, ENERGY STAR is a program that ensures all appliances and products with the ENERGY STAR label have been independently tested to make sure they meet specific benchmarks set by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for energy efficiency.

ENERGY STAR appliances are household appliances that have been verified to work effectively while using less energy. These appliances can include washers and dryers, air conditioners, heat pumps, water heaters, dishwashers, refrigerators, stoves, and other appliances. If you want to enjoy long-term savings and appliances with the latest features, ENERGY STAR is a label you’ll want to look for.

Why Should I Buy One?

If you need a new appliance, an ENERGY STAR appliance can perform the same function as one without the label, but the ENERGY STAR appliance offers some big advantages:

  • ENERGY STAR appliances can be good for the environment: Most electrical production still relies on the burning of fossil fuels, a process that releases carbon dioxide and other gases linked to climate change into our air. By using an energy-efficient appliance, you reduce the amount of fossil fuels released to supply your household with the energy it needs.
  • ENERGY STAR appliances can save you money: Since these appliances use less energy to operate, they can also help you save on your utility costs. Some localities even have incentives, and there are tax credits to help you save even more when you choose energy-efficient appliances.
  • ENERGY STAR appliances can improve the value of your home: Are you thinking of selling your home soon? Buyers look for ENERGY STAR appliances because it means electrical bill and energy bill savings for them.
  • ENERGY STAR appliances put more money in your pocket: The energy savings, rebates, and tax incentives that come with energy-efficient appliances can reduce the pressure high energy bills put on households. Spending less on energy can mean more money for other necessities.
  • New ENERGY STAR appliances can mean more reliable appliances: Are your appliances more than 10 years old? They may not only be contributing to a higher energy bill, but they may be costing you time and money by breaking down and causing inconvenience. They may also be costing you money in expensive repair services.

Updating your appliances can help you enjoy new features and savings as well as more convenience. If you’re in the market for new appliances, choosing ENERGY STAR labeled options can help you save even more in the long run.
