What is an ENERGY STAR® rating?

The ENERGY STAR® label is a voluntary, government-supported certification that recognizes energy efficiency in many appliances, electronics and other high-energy use products. If a specific product has an ENERGY STAR® label, it has passed a series of stringent requirements set forth by the EPA. When a specific brand or product earns an ENERGY STAR® rating, you can rest assured that it offers substantial energy savings. The appliances are not only up to the high product standards of the consumer; they also use an average of 15-30% less energy than equivalent products. The requirements for an ENERGY STAR® rating are modified and updated so as to keep up with modern technology.
