What Does the ENERGY STAR® Logo Mean?

Energy StarThe ENERGY STAR® logo, found on packaging, literature, product advertising and in some cases, products themselves, means that the products are significantly more energy efficient than required under current federal standards. For example, central air conditioning systems with ENERGY STAR® endorsed logos exceed existing federal standards by a minimum of 20 percent, and furnaces with the logo, exceed minimum standards by 15 percent. This means that the products have a higher level of energy efficiency than standard products found on the market today.

By choosing ENERGY STAR® qualifying products, homeowners can use energy more efficiently, save money on utility bills, help make their homes more comfortable and reduce air pollution without sacrificing the features, versatility or style that they expect from high-performing products.
