Switch to products certified by the federal Energy Star program this winter to cut energy costs and improve the quality of your Colorado home. As part of a program headed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy, products labeled with the star are required to be highly energy efficient and meet certain performance standards.
Here are several benefits of using Energy Star-qualified products for the winter:
Save on heating costs – When choosing Energy Star-certified products to heat your home, you’re saving money in the long run. These products are measured for energy efficiency during performance tests so that those energy savings are passed on to the consumer.
Select from a wide variety of products – Look for the program’s distinct label before replacing any old or aging products or systems. Replace these products that tend to waste energy with a wide selection of approved products. Ranging from heating and cooling systems to building and construction materials such as windows and skylights, these products will help create as well as maintain heat in your home.
Improve efficiency – As the program demands a high degree of efficiency from products, consumers can notice a considerable difference in the level of performance as well as energy bills when compared to their non-certified counterparts after installation. For example, while older furnaces used fossil fuel for heat, newer models are often gas or electric, which makes them more energy efficient, wasting less in the conversion from energy to heat.
