From Energy Hog to ENERGY STAR®
Getting ready to purchase that stainless steel refrigerator/freezer you’ve been dreaming about? Keep in mind that ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerators are required to use 20% less energy than models not labeled with the ENERGY STAR logo.
On average, an ENERGY STAR qualified model can cut your energy bills by $165 over the lifetime of your fridge. Click here for tips on buying a new refrigerator or freezer.
