Energy-efficient appliances

Energy-efficient appliances

Products that use less energy than conventional models. The Energy Star label is a credible third-party certification of a product’s energy efficiency. Consumers can also refer to the FTC’s (Federal Trade Commission’s) Energy Guide label, a yellow label affixed to most appliances today. Clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, water heaters, window air conditioners, central air conditioners, furnaces, boilers, heat pumps, and pool heaters can get the label. Televisions, ranges, ovens, clothes dryers, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers do not receive such labels.
