When an appliance bears the Energy Star symbol, it means that it’s one of most energy efficient appliances on the market. Only appliances that meet high energy efficiency eligibility criteria can display this internationally recognized symbol. The good news is that Energy Star certified appliances are not necessarily more expensive than others, but you can trust they will certainly save you money. For more information, read this article prepared by Ateliers G. Paquette.

Less Energy Spent, More Money Saved

When an appliance bears the Energy Star certification, it means that it consumes less energy than an uncertified appliance. You guessed it: the less energy you spend, the more money you save. But did you know that, according to Hydro-Québec, an appliance purchased in the 1990s can consume up to twice and even three times as much energy as a household appliance purchased in 2012? To reduce your electricity bills, the choice is easy: just buy the products that display the Energy Star symbol.

Doing Two Great Things at Once

Each time you use an Energy Star certified appliance, you are doing two great things at the same time. Not only are you reducing your expenses, but you’re also contributing to protecting the environment. In fact, Natural Resources Canada has stated that products consuming less energy, such as Energy Star certified appliances, emit less greenhouse gas (GHG) than other appliances.

Zero Compromise on Performance

If you are concerned that a household appliance using less energy is less efficient, think again. Energy Star certified household appliances offer superior energy efficiency and perform just as well – and sometimes even better – than other electrical appliances.

An Energy Star certified appliance always allows you to:

  • Save energy

  • Save money

  • Reduce your GHG emissions

  • Benefit from a product tested and certified by a government approved organization
