When you’re in the market for new heating or cooling equipment for your Omaha or Council Bluffs home, do you look for a system that will eat up a substantial amount of energy or one that is energy efficient? Obviously, the answer is the latter, and that’s exactly why the Energy Star Most Efficient label was created.

Isn’t there already an Energy Star label?

Yes. As a matter of fact, the Energy Star program has been active for the past 20 years. During that time, it has helped countless consumers choose the right heating and cooling equipment, along with various other appliances and electronics.

As with all other good things, the program has had to adapt to keep pace with technology. Because HVAC systems, appliances and electronics have become increasingly energy efficient over the years, the label doesn’t exactly have the same oomph today that it had in the past. That’s because so many products that you see today have the Energy Star logo. Now the Energy Star Most Efficient label can help you tell the difference between the good products and the best products, in terms of energy efficiency.

Better for consumers and competition

The Most Efficient label satisfies two primary goals. First, it tells you which products meet the highest efficiency standards, allowing you to make more informed decisions. And second, the newer guidelines promote competition among manufacturers, all of whom want to produce energy-efficient systems, appliances and electronics. To further assist consumers, Energy Star has a list of the most efficient products on its website.
