Green Appliances

One of the best ways to ensure that your appliances are environmentally friendly and energy efficient is to choose appliances with ENERGY STAR® label.
ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances use between 10-50% less energy and water than standard models resulting in lower utility bills that more than make up for the cost of a more expensive models bearing ENERGY STAR® label. 

The following is a brief summary of energy savings when buying ENERGY STAR® appliances plus buying tips:

Dishwashers use at least 25% less energy than standard models. 
  • Consider dishwashers that have an Energy Factor (EF) of at least 0.65, or an estimated energy use of less than 340 kWh/year efficiency
  • More cycle wash options allow for better tailoring of the energy and water use needed for a particular load

Refrigerators use at least 20% less energy than standard models
  • Choose top-mounted freezer configuration over side-by-side.
  • Refrigerators under 25 cubic feet use significantly less energy than those over 25 cubic feet.

Clothes washers use less than 50% of the energy used by standard washers.
  • Consider front- vs. top-loading washers
  • Choose a clothes washer that offers plenty of choices for energy conserving wash and rinse cycles
