The Energy Star program is another home renovation, green living tool for energy saving ideas that homeowners use for saving energy and saving money by reducing utility bills. Best of all, it costs you nothing to use, and it can save you a lot of money.
Started by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in 1992, Energy Star is a voluntary labeling program that has helped people around the globe find ways to conserve energy, beyond energy efficient light bulbs, by finding the most energy saving products to use in their homes, businesses, and daily lives. Since that time, and especially after later partnering with the United States Department of Energy, the Energy Star Label on thousands of items that consumers and businesses use in daily life has helped guide energy saving decisions that have resulted in the reduction of many tons of emissions and many billions of dollars in energy costs.
As you look to your own home renovation and updating the way you live, by carefully comparing the Energy Star label information on products you are considering, you will add your own savings and keep more money in your own pocket. The folks at energystar.gov also have many tools and calculators to help you make energy-wise choices as you plan any renovations to your home, or contemplate new appliance purchases.
