The Energy Star ensures that your appliances meet the standards of the Environmental Protective Agency. There are a number of green technology options to make your home earth friendly. Not all of them, however, are created equally. To ensure that your home appliances meet the standard for energy conservation and limited waste, look for the mark of the Energy Star, created by the Environmental Protection Agency in collaboration with the US Department of Energy. We use endless energy-consuming appliances and gadgets in our homes but with Energy Star marked appliances we can save up to 30 percent of our usual energy consumption. At the same time, replacing old and broken appliances with new ones that have the Energy Star will cut down our electric bills. It sounds like a win-win combination, don’t you agree?
