We hope so! If you’ve spotted this blue and white emblem in your house, it’s a good sign.

Over the years, the Energy Star® logo has become a prominent badge of honour worn by both Canadian and U.S. home products that display excellence in the area of energy efficiency.

Let us tell you exactly what that means…

The Energy Star® is a trusted, government-backed symbol representing energy efficiency, an identification initiative created to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy. Seeing this label on a product is meant to make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that will ultimately offer savings on energy bills without sacrificing any key performance factors, competitive features, and of course, comfort.

Who decides on what items become Energy Star®-approved? That would be the decision of Natural Resources Canada. Typically, an Energy Star® certified product is in the top 15 to 30 percent of its class for energy performance.

So, if you’re looking to replace windows, doors, or various appliances in your home, seek out this symbol. The Energy Star® represents you saving more than just money with energy efficient practices, but saving the environment simultaneously.
