More and more people are updating their old appliances, electronics, and other household products to Energy Star rated ones. Aside from the environmental benefit this provides by cutting down on energy resource consumption, there’s also a bottom line to consider! Energy Star appliances help save you money annually. Save Energy at Home provides a broad introduction to Energy Star and potential savings. In addition to the immediate savings you’ll render just by using your Energy Star products, you can also learn how to claim a tax credit at the Federal Tax Credits for Consumer Energy Efficiency web page.
