You’ve seen the Energy Star label on washing machines and air conditioners when you go to the appliance store, but you don’t know exactly what it means. Energy Star is an important EPA initiative that gives consumers information about the most energy-efficient household products.
Energy Star Has Been Around for More Than 20 Years
The EPA introduced Energy Star in 1992. This label is for brands producing products that use energy sources. It is a voluntary label that brands use to indicate a product meets a certain standard set by the EPA. The point is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and the first products to receive Energy Star labels were computers.
Energy Star Saves You Hundreds
Since 1992, Energy Star has saved families and businesses $362 billion, and has taken greenhouse gas emissions down 2.4 billion metric tons. If you aren’t using an Energy Star HVAC system, you could be spending more than $100 on extra heating and cooling costs every year. When you combine a new Energy Star machine with good insulation and duct repair, you’ll save considerably on what you were spending to heat and cool your home.
