Large home appliances can account for a significant part of your energy usage. One way to save is to choose an ENERGY STAR® qualified replacement once your appliance reaches the end of its life. ENERGY STAR® appliances are in the top 15-30% of their class for energy performance. Look for the ENERGY STAR® symbol on the appliance’s EnerGuide label when shopping.
ENERGY STAR® can sometimes cost more up front, but the cost will be offset by energy savings over the life of the unit. You can also buy ENERGY STAR® qualified televisions, computers, air conditioners, light fixtures, LED light bulbs and more! If you’re replacing an appliance or electronic, always remember to recycle the one you’re replacing.
Visit the Government of Canada’s website for more information and for a list of certified ENERGY STAR® products available in Canada.
