Thanks, George Washington, for the Energy Efficient Appliances!


For many, President’s Day weekend is not just a time to honor the birthday of our country’s founding father, it also marks beginning of the final escape from dreadfully cold and snowy days. For smart consumers, the day is also has another reputation:  the second best shopping day of the year, after Black Friday.


What does any of this have to do with energy savings? Well, we’ve talked before about Black Friday savings on ENERGY STAR® appliances, and given tips for finding the best deals on energy efficient products that will also save you in overall energy costs. Now that the runner up of the best shopping days in the year is upon us, it is important to remember the benefit of purchasing ENERGY STAR products, especially if they are on sale!

A quick internet search or glance through the newspaper will provide a list of retailers who are discounting prices on ENERGY STAR products this President’s Day – some while also providing buy-back programs for old appliances or appliance rebates! Household products with the ENERGY STAR label meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Purchasing ENERGY STAR appliances will extend energy savings year-round by increasing your efficiency and decreasing your carbon footprint.

Find out much your current refrigerator or other appliance is currently costing you in energy, and make a decision to take advantage of the anniversary of our esteemed first President’s birth – ok, the President’s Day sales – and start (or hopefully, continue) your journey toward energy efficiency in the home!

Visit the ENERGY STAR website for more information on the program and an up-to-date list of energy efficient home appliances and other products.
