Appliances & Lighting
When shopping for appliances, lighting, and electronics, always look for the ENERGY STAR® label.
ENERGY STAR is the trusted government-backed symbol for energy efficiency that helps us all save money and protect the environment. ENERGY STAR products meet the strictest energy efficiency requirements. For instance, one of the best ways to reduce your electricity bills is to replace traditional incandescent light bulbs with ENERGY STAR light emitting diodes (LEDs). LEDs use about 20% less energy than incandescents and last about 20 years longer. The resources in this section will help you select appliances, lighting, and electronics that will use the least energy and save you big time in the long run.
