These days, energy costs are on the rise. If you are looking for a way to reduce your costs and help control your environmental impact, you’re not alone. Many homeowners across the country are looking to cut back on their electric usage, but in locations like Florida that have very hot and humid summers, turning off the air conditioner isn’t very realistic. Luckily, the federal Energy Star program is helping substantially in the national campaign to save energy. Taking part in the program involves installing appliances in your home that have been specifically approved to operate on less energy, saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint.
In 2006, the Energy Star program helped save over $14 billion in energy costs. The U.S. Department of Energy claims that participating in the Energy Star Program can save you up to 50 percent on your electric bill, depending on what you use and how you use it. That adds up to almost $2,000 per household since the program was put into place.
The program is also doing wonderful things for the environment. The more people who install efficient products, the less impact everyday activities such as cooking and doing laundry can have on the environment. All of the approved appliances require less fuel, less water and/or less of a demand for fossil fuels. The products are also designed for optimal ease of usage, making your everyday life more convenient.
