ENERGY STAR® is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that helps us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Choosing ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances can save you up to a third on your energy bill each year, as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Results are already adding up. Last year alone, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR®, saved enough energy to power 10 million homes and avoid greenhouse gas emissions from 12 million cars - all while saving $6 billion.
Refrigerators & Freezers

Power out tough stains without wasting energy or water. Front-loading ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washers use 40-75% less water and 30-85% less energy than typical top-loaders, which equals 10 to 24 gallons per load vs. up to 40 gallons with top load washers.
Many qualified clothes washers also have a greater capacity than conventional models, meaning fewer loads of laundry.
The average American family washes almost 400 loads of laundry each year. Over the life of your new ENERGY STAR qualified washer, you’ll save enough money in operating costs to pay for the matching dryer. With your water savings, you could fill three swimming pools.
Replacing your old washer with a new ENERGY STAR qualified washer could save you over $135 each year on your utility bills. That’s like getting your detergent for free year round.
