Home appliance care checklist
Taking care of your appliances can help keep your home safe and life to the appliance. Here are some helpful appliance safety recommendations and tips for saving energy to follow.
Benefits of ENERGY STAR appliances
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy saving appliances and practices.
- ENERGY STAR appliances include washers, dehumidifiers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers and room air conditioners.
- The average savings per home that uses ENERGY STAR appliances is approximately $80 per year.
- ENERGY STAR appliances use 10-15% less energy and water than standard models.
- If 1 in 10 homes used ENERGY STAR appliances, the change would equal 1.7 million new acres of trees.
