How can I tell if my appliance is ENERGY STAR® qualified?
When shopping for an appliance, it's easy to recognize the ENERGY STAR®
label that identifies qualified products. This label means that the product passed stringent standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy. Additionally, manufacturers are required to display their products’ test results on the ENERGY STAR®
label. The label will tell you about the product's efficiency level, including approximately how much energy the appliance uses, its average annual operating cost, and how its energy use compares with that of similar products.
