Keeping energy costs down during the heating and cooling seasons is a concern of many Indianapolis-area homeowners. A good resource for finding energy-efficient and cost-effective heating and cooling products is the Energy Star program.
Developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Star is a program in which experts identify, test, and recommend energy-efficient products and practices that won’t break the bank. It’s geared toward consumers, who are very budget conscious and environmentally aware, and includes recommendations on products such as:
- Hot-water boilers
- Heat pumps
- Central air conditioners
- Main circulating fans
Why Choose Energy Star?
There are several practices and products that have a history of reducing homeowner’s energy costs. For instance, last winter you may have been overspending on heating costs because of air leaks in your home or because of an old furnace. Energy Star products and home-sealing techniques could help bring those costs down this winter.
Environmentally conscious homeowners will appreciate the green aspect of these products. Energy Star-approved appliances work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
How to Identify Energy Star Products
The blue Energy Star label is featured prominently on products that can cut your energy costs without reducing the available features or benefits. The Energy Star seal of approval comes affixed as a label on the product or as a logo on the product’s Energy Guide.
