Labels Help Consumers with Appliance Shopping
Going green is big these days, and many consumers rate energy-efficiency high on their appliance wish lists. Knowing this, we thought the Federal Trade Commission’s fact sheet on “Appliance Shopping with the EnergyGuide Label” could help some of our customers who are new to shopping for appliances.
The EnergyGuide Label appears on clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators and freezers to help consumers compare the energy consumption of comparable appliances, according to the FTC. The label includes maker, model, size and key features of the appliance, as well as its estimated yearly operating cost as compared to similar models. It also includes an estimate of annual electricity use, and, if the appliance is EnergyStar rated, it will also include the EnergyStar logo.
Check out the FTC’s guide to get answers to common questions and see a sample diagram explaining the EnergyGuide Label. If you’re in the market for a new appliance, visit a Builder Appliance Center showroom in Englewood, Colorado, today.
