Energy Star is a collaborative program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy that was created to help Americans save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
Energy Star in your Home
Energy efficient choices can save families about a third on their energy bill with similar savings of greenhouse gas emissions, without sacrificing features, style or comfort. ENERGY STAR helps you make the energy efficient choice for your home and our world.
- If looking for new household products, look for ones that have earned the ENERGY STAR. They meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and US Department of Energy.
- If looking for a new home, look for one that has energy efficient ENERGY STAR windows.
- If looking to make larger improvements to your home, EPA offers tools and resources to help you plan and undertake projects to reduce your energy bills and improve home comfort.
What are the results of Energy Star?
With the help of purchase conscious Americans that chose to buy Energy Star products, in 2010 alone America saved enough energy to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 33 million cars — all while saving nearly $18 billion on their utility bills.
