Tougher Standards for the Energy Star Label

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for an appliance to be labeled by Energy Star it needs to pass a set of tough guidelines.

Energy Star labels have been appearing on numerous products, including, clothes washers, refrigerators, water coolers, computers, cordless phones, televisions, fans, furnaces, water heaters, light bulbs and fixtures. The Energy Star label can also can be found on commercial-grade kitchen appliances, as well as, windows, doors and skylights.

Tougher standards will ensure the Energy Star certification is a genuine benefit for consumers and not an inappropriate product label.

Manufacturers who want to qualify for a product to be labeled as Energy Star-certified now must submit complete lab reports and results for EPA review and approval before they are permitted to use the Energy Star label.

Currently, the U.S. Department of Energy is testing some of the most common Energy Star-rated products to make sure they’re compliant with the program’s requirements.
