Upgrading Your Home Comfort System? Follow The Energy Star
In the early 1990s, the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency founded the Energy Star program. This unique program was designed to help protect the environment and reduce energy usage by placing a bright blue label on products that met strict energy guidelines. These labels would allow consumers to tell at a glance whether or not a product was energy efficient.
In the early stages of the program, the labels were limited to computers and monitors. However, over time the program has expanded to include a large number of appliances, electronics, heating and cooling equipment and even entire houses and commercial buildings.
When shopping for new heating and cooling equipment for your home, there are several distinct advantages to choosing Energy Star-approved products:
- Since Energy Star-rated products consume less energy, they can save you a lot of money on your home heating and cooling costs.
- Furnaces are often powered by fossil fuels. By choosing an energy-efficient model you can conserve natural resources and protect the environment for future generations to enjoy.
- In order to reduce energy consumption, manufacturers often use higher-quality components and more advanced technologies in energy-efficient appliances than they use in standard appliances. As a result, the high-efficiency models often last longer, have fewer breakdowns and outperform their lower-efficiency counterparts.
As you can see, choosing Energy Star-rated heating and cooling equipment allows you to save money and protect the environment without having to sacrifice comfort or convenience.
