I will forever be a teacher at heart and as a teacher there is no higher compliment to give than a gold star. A star symbolizes a job well done, great effort, and excellence achieved. It seems like teachers aren’t the only ones who recognize the power of the star as it is used to highlight appliances and products that do an exceptional job saving energy.
ENERGY STAR certified electronic products save energy when compared to non-certified products because they are more efficient in all usage modes: sleep, idle, and on. If you are interested in reducing their energy bill while helping to protect the environment, then ENERGY STAR is a good choice for you.
ENERGY STAR certified products save you money. Products come with two price tags: the purchase price and the cost of operating the product for a year. ENERGY STAR certified products can help you save money on operating costs by reducing energy expenses without sacrificing performance. ENERGY STAR certified products also reduce energy usage, which is good for the environment as well as your wallet!

ENERGY STAR products to consider
ENERGY STAR certified audio/video equipment, including sound bars is up to 50 percent more efficient than conventional models. Consumers can maximize their energy savings by bundling ENERGY STAR certified televisions and sound bars and other products.
“ENERGY STAR certified dryers use 20 percent less energy than conventional models without sacrificing features or performance. They do this using innovative energy saving technologies, such as moisture sensors that detect when clothes are dry and automatically shut the dryer off. Many ENERGY STAR dryers also include convenient features, such as steam cycles that can help save time on ironing clothes by preventing wrinkles.
More than 80 percent of American homes have a clothes dryer, so the savings opportunity is huge. If all clothes dryers sold in the US were ENERGY STAR certified, Americans could save $1.5 billion each year in utility costs and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 2 million vehicles. To choose a dryer that saves energy and money while protecting the environment, look for the ENERGY STAR label.
