Products with this label have been designed with saving energy in mind. Reduced energy usage is great for the environment, and it’s also great for your wallet since using less energy = lower utility bills.
Best Buy is a company with a strong commitment to having a positive impact on the environment, and therefore is a great place to find a large selection of energy-efficient products, including ENERGY STAR certified appliances. If, for example, you are in the market for a washer and dryer upgrade, there are so many benefits to going with an ENERGY STAR model.
Did you know that ENERGY STAR clothes washers are actually gentler on your clothes during the washing process, and the ENERGY STAR dryers use sensor drying which makes for less wear and tear on clothing, as well? I can tell you from personal experience that you will also notice quite a difference in your water bills (thanks to the machines using 45% less water) and your electricity bills (a 25% reduction) thanks to these appliances. In fact, it is estimated that over the lifetime of an ENERGY STAR certified washer you will save $490 on your bills, and the savings are even higher if you also get an ENERGY STAR dryer.
My own ENERGY STAR washing machine does such a great job of extracting water during its spin cycle that my clothes don’t take as long to dry in the dryer. I also no longer run into the problem of having my clothes TOO dry (when they are hot to the touch from drying too long). They come out dry but not heated to excess, which is perfect.
Take a moment to teach your children about the ENERGY STAR label so you can all be watching for it when you are shopping for electronics and appliances. And be sure to see the large selection of products offered at your nearest Best Buy. Your purchase will be good for the Earth and good for your bottom line!
