ENERGY STAR®
ENERGY STAR was established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy to help protect the environment, through certification of energy-efficient products and practices. Energy efficiency offers one of the lower cost solutions for reducing energy costs, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels and helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions – without sacrificing features, style or comfort. With the help of ENERGY STAR, Americans prevented 37 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions in 2006 alone – equivalent to the annual emissions from 25 million vehicles – and saved more than $14 billion on their utility bills.

Since its inception in 1992, the ENERGY STAR program has grown to encompass more than 35 product categories for the home, workplace, new home construction and organizational energy management. So whether replacing an old appliance, making home improvements or buying a new home, consumers can use ENERGY STAR to help guide their purchasing decision, save money and prevent greenhouse gas emissions.
