So, how does Energy Star play a role in helping you to save money? There are several ways.
In short, you want to select services and products that offer the Energy Star seal of approval. There are several ways that you can gain these benefits.
For example, if you are purchasing a new appliance, you can save a good deal of money by purchasing a product that is Energy Star approved.
Most of us have seen the yellow tags on appliances to show us just what the benefits to our energy bill is if we purchase this product.
In order for an appliance to get this tag on it, it must pass some pretty amazing tests to insure that it is efficient enough to be considered an Energy Star product.
The guidelines are set for each type of product through the United States Department of Energy and by the Environmental Protection Agency.
If you are looking for a new appliance, such as a refrigerator, a washer or dryer, a dishwasher, an oven, a cook top…any appliance for your home, look for one that is Energy Star approved as it will save you a great dela of money in the long run.

Something that has been just becoming available is the ability to tap into Energy Star benefits through your actual new home purchase.
As you will see in later chapters, you can now purchase homes that are Energy Star efficient. If you do this, you will save a great deal of money.
Look for a home that has been designed specifically for energy efficiency and you will walk away with benefits.
You can also go to the EPA’s website to gain tools that will help you to design and fix problems related to energy needs as well.
You can find how to lower your energy bills while still providing a great deal of comfort to you and to your family.
