Appliances - Energy Star Rated

Older appliances can be costing you great amounts money.

By updating Refrigerators, Freezers, Washer or other appliances over time newer appliances pay for themselves in savings of energy usage.

Refrigerators and Freezers

ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerators use up to 40 percent less energy than the conventional models sold in 2001 and at least 15 percent less energy than models built to current federal standards. These refrigerators
feature high-efficiency compressors, improved insulation, and more precise temperature and defrost mechanisms. ENERGY STAR qualified freezers use at least 10 percent less energy than required by current
federal standards.


ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers use at least 41 percent less energy than the federal minimum standard for energy consumption. These dishwashers use “smart” features such as effective washing action, energy-efficient motors, and sensors that determine the necessary cycle length and water temperature.
TIP: Use short wash cycles for everything but the dirtiest dishes.

Clothes Washers

ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washers use 40 to 50 percent less energy and about 55 percent less water than standard washers. As a result, you can expect to save up to $50 per year on utility and water
bills, with additional savings from using less detergent. Most ENERGY STAR qualified washers extract more water during the spin cycle, providing further energy savings when using a clothes dryer because
drying time will be shorter. Also, owners will see less wear and tear on clothes from front loading models, which do not need an agitator.

TIP: Use the correct amount and type of detergent; too many bubbles
will make the machine work harder than necessary.
