Energy Star appliances
include clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers and air
conditioners. Certain appliances, like ranges and dryers, are not Energy
Star-certified because they consume large amounts of energy. In
addition to Energy Star qualifications, these appliances are also rated
by the CEE (the Consortium for Energy Efficiency) and assigned to energy
tiers. All you need to know is the higher the tier, the more efficient
the appliance and more money and energy you save.
So help yourself (and help save energy) by cashing in that clunker and upgrading to a new Energy Star appliance.
