Select ENERGY STAR® Appliances
Save energy and money with other ENERGY STAR certified appliances.
The average U.S. family washes almost 300 loads of laundry each year. An ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer uses about 45% less water and about 25% less energy than a regular washer and can save you as much as $490 in energy and water over its lifespan.
ENERGY STAR certified electric clothes dryers use approximately 20% less energy than standard models without sacrificing features or performance. How do they do it? Energy-saving technologies like moisture sensors detect when clothes are dry and automatically shut the dryer off. The low heat setting lets your clothes run for a longer drying cycle at lower heat, which uses less energy to dry your clothes. Plus, many models include convenience features such as steam cycles that prevent wrinkles, saving you time on ironing.
More than 80% of U.S. homes have a clothes dryer. If all clothes dryers sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, Americans could save as much as $1.5 billion a year in utility costs and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 2 million vehicles.*
ENERGY STAR certified freezers are at least 10% more energy efficient than the federal standard. Replacing your old freezer with one that has earned the ENERGY STAR could save you $175 over the next five years.
On average, a 15-year-old refrigerator uses twice as much energy as a new ENERGY STAR refrigerator. By properly recycling your old refrigerator and replacing it with a new ENERGY STAR certified model, you could save up to $270 and reduce your carbon footprint by as much as 8,600 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions over the next five years.
Room Air Conditioners
New ENERGY STAR certified room air conditioners come with better materials and clearer instructions to reduce air leaks and help you save you on energy bills. Today’s models cost only about $70 per year to run! Some even come with smart functionality that allows you to control the unit remotely with your phone or computer.
