Look for the “Star”

energy_star

When purchasing new appliances, look for the “Energy Star” seal.  While “Energy Star” standards vary by appliance, they will result in a more energy-efficient appliance.  For instance oil or gas furnace has a typical payback period of 11 months, an Energy Star central air conditioner pays back the extra cost in about 4 months, and an Energy Star refrigerator has an average payback period of 3 years.
