The ENERGY STAR program has become an international standard to help consumers save energy and money through the purchase of energy efficient products.

The international ENERGY STAR® symbol is a simple way for consumers to identify products that are among the most energy efficient on the market. Only manufacturers and retailers whose products meet the ENERGY STAR® criteria can label their products with this symbol. Choosing an ENERGY STAR® labeled product over a conventional model could save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs.
