What is Energy Star?
Energy Star is a voluntary partnership between the government and more than 9,000 organizations, including 2,500 of the nation’s homebuilders.
ENERGY STAR is the government backed symbol for energy efficiency. The logo identifies new homes and more than 40 types of products for energy efficiency while offering the features, quality and personal comfort that today’s consumers expect.
ENERGY STAR products include:
- Home Office equipment
- Consumer electronics
- Heating and cooling equipment
ENERGY STAR provides the following promise to new homes:
- Significantly more efficient energy consumption than the standard home
- Lower utility bills compared to Non-Energy Star
- Reduction in air pollution
Energy Star homeowners typically save up to 40% on their energy costs. Last year alone, Americans using ENERGY STAR saved enough energy to power 20 million homes and reduced greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those form 18 million cars, while saving $9 billion in energy costs.
