Between your water heater, washing machine and refrigerator, your home is constantly consuming power. If you have older appliances, you could be throwing away money every month. Energy efficient appliances are a popular alternative, because they can cut your energy bills and reduce your impact on the environment.
What are Energy Efficient Appliances?
Energy efficient appliances are household machines that make maximum use of small amounts of energy. They often operate at lower temperature and energy settings yet are still able to function at the same level as older model appliances.
Types of Energy Efficient Household Appliances
From your kitchen to your basement, you have many different types of appliances that help with tasks like laundry and heating. Many of these household machines could be upgraded to become more energy efficient, including:
- Air conditioners
- Water heaters
- Washing machines
Why it Makes Sense to Choose Energy Efficiency
1) Reduces Home Expenses
One of the biggest reasons that homeowners upgrade to energy efficient appliances is the promise of saving money each month on energy bills. Although these types of appliances can be an investment, the potential for savings is significant.
An Energy Star appliance may save up to 30 percent on electricity bills each month. Over time, that can add up to much more than the cost of the appliance.
This savings can then be used on other home remodeling projects, like that new kitchen you have been dreaming about.
2) Saves Energy
As the name suggests, energy efficient appliances are engineered to use a minimum amount of energy that still allows them to complete their tasks effectively. These devices reduce the strain on a home’s energy resources. Then, the energy that is not consumed can be used for a different purpose in your home, like maybe radiant flooring.
3) Environmentally Friendly
If you are environmentally conscious, you might have another reason to consider upgrading your home to be more energy efficient. These types of appliances help to conserve resources, like natural gas, oil, coal and water. Energy efficient appliances are also proven to reduce household pollution and promote sustainability.
