We’re just a few days away from the biggest savings of the year—why not shop for energy savers, too? Whether you’re looking for a gift or to make home upgrades, consider ENERGY STAR and/or efficient appliances to not only save you money while you shop but in the long run when the bill comes around.
Save big this holiday season with these energy savers:
Wireless Speakers – ENERGY STAR certified wireless speakers provide all the functionality of standard products, but use less energy, reducing their impact on the environment.
Digital Media Players – If your home entertainment system has both a game console and a digital media player as streaming device options, always use the digital media player because game consoles use considerably more energy for streaming.
Laptops – Depending on how it’s used, an ENERGY STAR computer uses about 60% less energy without sacrificing quality or performance.
Tablets – Keeping your devices regularly updated will ensure they are equipped with the most up-to-date energy saving systems and programs.
Sound Bars – Sound bars are some of the hottest gifts on the market, and many are ENERGY STAR certified! You’ll hear the sounds of savings this holiday season, with an ENERGY STAR certified sound bar that uses about 70% less energy than conventional models.
Refrigerators – Properly recycling and replacing your old refrigerator with a new ENERGY STAR certified model could save you $60 a year on energy costs.
Dishwashers – Dishwashers that have earned the ENERGY STAR are, on average, 12% more energy efficient and 30% more water efficient than standard models.
Heat Pump Dryers – An ENERGY STAR certified heat pump dryer can reduce energy use by at least 28% compared to standard dryers.
Smart Thermostats – ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostats deliver demonstrated energy savings and reliable performance keeping you comfortable inside while protecting the environment outside. If everyone used an ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostat, savings would grow to 56 trillion BTUs of energy and $740 million dollars per year, offsetting 13 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions.
