There’s a direct link between making smart, energy-wise choices in new appliances and the amount of money you’ll ultimately save on your energy bill. And of course, using less energy is also good for the environment.
Appliances and many other consumer products are long-term investments. Choosing a less expensive appliance with a low energy rating may seem like a good deal in the short term. But it’s smarter to consider the lifetime cost of an appliance not just the numbers on the price tag.
ENERGY STAR is the gold star of energy efficiency. You’ll find it only on appliances and products that have made top grades in rigorous energy efficiency tests. ENERGY STAR is a symbol you’ll see on products around the world and here in Canada. It’s a symbol worth looking for and purchasing. Making the right decisions now will mean saving money and using less energy in the long run.
