Energy Star Information
ENERGY STAR is a government-backed program helping businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency.
Since 1992, ENERGY STAR has united government, business, and market forces to engage significant change in our economy and environment. As a result of ENERGY STAR, Americans saved over $239 billion on utility bills in the last two decades. It has simultaneously prevented 1.9 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
If looking for new household products, look for ones that have earned the ENERGY STAR. They meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and US Department of Energy, without sacrificing style or comfort. If looking to make larger improvements to your home, EPA offers tools and resources to help you plan and undertake projects to reduce your energy bills and improve home comfort. Of course when searching for a new home all together, look for one that has earned the ENERGY STAR.
