Save Energy and Money

When shopping for new appliances, the yellow and black EnergyGuide label is your best source for energy efficiency information. The look of EnergyGuide labels may vary from this one, but they all provide the same information to help you in your buying decision.

The EnergyGuide label is required on most major appliances and allows you to compare different models by:

  • Price
  • Operating costs
  • Energy efficiencies
