Appliances & Electronics

Shopping for energy efficient appliances and electronics is relatively easy. Major appliances, and electronics must meet minimum Federal energy standards, and these products must carry an EnergyGuide label with consumption information. If it exceeds the minimum standards, products also carry an ENERGY STAR® logo. The most efficient appliances often cost almost the same as ones with average efficiency.

If your older water heater feels warm to the touch, buy a water heater blanket and save up to 9% on your water-heating costs. Check the caution label on your water heater. Newer models come with proper insulation and some even prohibit installing a blanket. Finally, don’t cover the inspection plate with the blanket, it could be a fire hazard.
