If your refrigerator and dishwasher are more than 10 years old, you can most likely reduce your utility bills by replacing these appliances with high-efficiency models. There’s an initial investment to upgrade old appliances, but chances are you’ll appreciate the superior performance and lower utility bills.
The EnerGuide label shows the total annual energy the appliance will consume yearly under average operation. You can use the rating to compare your options for electrical appliances.
An ENERGY STAR label means that a product meets stringent energy requirements. Ovens and ranges aren’t included in the program, given the inherent inefficiency of these appliances.
Refrigerator models with the freezer on the top or bottom use up to 25% less energy than comparable side-by-side models.
Compact dishwashers use less water and energy per wash, but if you have to use it more than once a day, it’s likely more efficient to use a standard size. Like refrigerators, dishwashers operate most efficiently when full.
