Select Clothes Washers
Energy-efficient clothes washers use about 25% less energy and 40% less water than conventional models. They can also cut drying time and reduce wear-and-tear on clothing with gentler cleaning action.
Select Electric Clothes Dryers
Energy-efficient electric clothes dryers use 20% less energy than conventional models. They also use sensor drying instead of timed drying, which helps reduce energy use by shutting the dryer off when clothes are dry.
ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerators use up to 15% less energy than standard, less-efficient models. That can add up to $150 in electricity savings over the lifetime of your fridge. Qualifying models must be 10 to 30 cubic feet.
ENERGY STAR certified dehumidifiers use 15 percent less energy than conventional modes to remove the same amount of moisture from the air. You could power a refrigerator for three months with the energy you can save in a year running an efficient dehumidifier.
Select Air Purifiers
ENERGY STAR certified air purifiers use 40 percent less energy than conventional models to remove fine particles, such as dust and pollen, from indoor air. Qualifying models must have a Smoke CADR rating of 100 or higher.
Select Smart Thermostats
ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostats can help reduce your energy use by automatically adjusting the temperature based on daily weather conditions, schedules, and heating and cooling needs. You can also use a computer or smartphone to monitor and adjust your home’s temperature remotely.
Select Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pumps
Cold climate air source heat pumps are designed specifically for very cold climates and can efficiently extract heat from air with temperatures far below 0°F. These heat pumps provide a very efficient way to heat your home, lower electric bills and improve comfort.
- Compressor must be variable capacity (three or more distinct operating speeds, or continuously variable)
- SEER Rating: 15 or higher
- COP at 5°F: 1.75 or higher (at maximum capacity operation)
- HSPF Rating: 10 or higher (non-ducted systems)
- HSPF Rating: 9 or higher (ducted systems)
Select Air Source Heat Pumps
Air source heat pumps work by absorbing heat from the outside air and transferring it into your home. Modern heat pumps can reduce your electricity use for heating by approximately 50% compared to electric resistance heating such as furnaces and baseboard heaters.
- SEER Rating: 15 or higher
- HSPF Rating: 8.5 or higher
- EER Rating: 12.5 or higher
Select Heat Pump Water Heaters
ENERGY STAR certified heat pump water heaters can cost half as much to operate as traditional electric water heaters. On average, a family of four can save more than $3,500 over the lifetime of the unit.
Select Pool Pumps
ENERGY STAR pool pumps can save you thousands of dollars over their lifetime and can pay for themselves in less than two years.
