Energy Star was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy as a tool for reducing energy use and air pollution by labeling energy-efficient, cost-saving products used in residences and offices.
Products that earn the Energy Star label significantly enhance energy savings and promote a healthy environment. By participating in the Energy Star program, we help differentiate between standard-efficiency and high-efficiency products. Using these products helps homeowners and businesses save money on their utility bills and works to protect the environment by conserving energy.
Those who purchase an Energy Star labeled air conditioner or heat pump are purchasing a product that is in the top 25 percent for efficiency. Depending on your existing equipment’s age, you can save between 15 percent and 40 percent on monthly utility bills by opting for an Energy Star-qualified product.
