Saving money and energy has been a household priority of ours for years. Unfortunately, as our family has grown, so has our energy bills. Also, our use of energy as grown as well. We have taken steps to reduce our energy bill, but I feel we can always do more.
Saving Money and Energy
Certified ENERGY STAR® consumer electronic products save energy in comparison to non-certified products because they are more efficient in all usage modes: sleep, idle, and on. I know we have purchased products in the past that are Energy Star certified, and they have done a lot to save us money. However, I’m not always sure what is available with the Energy Star label, or even where to buy them. This is where Best Buy comes into play, they committed to positively impacting the environment and our communities.
Best Buy provides its customers with a wide assortment of sustainable products, including ENERGY STAR certified consumer electronics and appliances. Did you know Best Buy offers a wide assortment of appliances? In 2015, Best Buy customers purchased enough ENERGY STAR® certified products to collectively save $67,120,515 in annual energy costs. In fact, their customers have purchased ENERGY STAR® certified products to collectively save enough energy to help power 70,538 households for a year.
Best Buy Energy Star Sound Bars and Dryers
In 2015, Best Buy sold enough ENERGY STAR® certified Audio Equipment and Sound Bars to collectively help prevent the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to removing 2,013 cars from the road for an entire year. Were you aware that sound bars used so much energy? You wouldn’t think so given how small they are!
Using ENERGY STAR certified audio/video equipment, including sound bars, is up to 50 percent more efficient than conventional models. Consumers can maximize their energy savings by bundling ENERGY STAR certified televisions and sound bars and other products.
ENERGY STAR certified dryers use 20 percent less energy than conventional models without sacrificing features or performance. They do this using innovative energy saving technologies, such as moisture sensors that detect when clothes are dry and automatically shut the dryer off. Many ENERGY STAR dryers also include convenient features, such as steam cycles that can help save time on ironing clothes by preventing wrinkles.
More than 80 percent of American homes have a clothes dryer, so the savings opportunity is huge. If all clothes dryers sold in the US were ENERGY STAR certified, Americans could save $1.5 billion each year in utility costs and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 2 million vehicles. To choose a dryer that saves energy and money while protecting the environment, look for the ENERGY STAR label.

When purchasing Energy Star products, you will see two price tags: the purchase price and the cost of operating the product. ENERGY STAR certified products can help customers save money on operating costs by reducing energy expenses without sacrificing performance.
