In comparison to non-certified products they are more efficient in all usage modes: sleep, idle, and on so it will reduce your energy which will then result in a reduced energy bill.

Sound Bars

Audio is super important in our household especially during family movie nights. ENERGY STAR certified audio/video equipment, including sound bars is up to 50 percent more efficient than conventional models. They sound better and look better with their sleek design taking up less space. Consumers can maximize their energy savings by bundling ENERGY STAR certified televisions and sound bars and other products.


Do you have piles of laundry that never seem to end? I have that problem too. One minute you are done and then turn around to find more dirty clothes. I have laundry days where I am constantly running the dryer all day long and that can get expensive with a non-certified dryer. Thankfully there is ENERGY STAR certified dryers that use 20 percent less energy than conventional models without sacrificing features or performance. They do this using innovative energy-saving technologies, such as moisture sensors that detect when clothes are dry and automatically shut the dryer off. Many ENERGY STAR dryers also include convenient features, such as steam cycles that can help save time on ironing clothes by preventing wrinkles.


More than 80 percent of American homes have a clothes dryer, so the savings opportunity is huge. If all clothes dryers sold in the US were ENERGY STAR certified, Americans could save $1.5 billion each year in utility costs and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 2 million vehicles. To choose a dryer that saves energy and money while protecting the environment, look for the ENERGY STAR label.
