Energy Star Products, Appliances, and Building Materials

Although not affiliated with the EPA’s Energy Star program, Green Building Energy Savings is dedicated to strongly promoting the use of appliances and building materials displaying the blue Energy Star logo. These products are certified to meet the now international Energy Star standards of efficiency. From heating and cooling systems to home electronics and lighting. any items bearing the Energy Star seal will boast an average of a 20-30% energy savings over standard products of the same type. Entire buildings can be Energy Star certified as well, with such construction using at least 15% less energy overall than a standard home.

Strict Energy Star guidelines are applied by the Environmental Protection Agency to all manner of electronic products in a variety of ways. Energy savings and energy efficiency standards are not soley based upon power draw or use of electricity, either. Overall efficiency, length of a product’s lifetime, greenhouse gas emissions, and in some cases water usage are all carefully measured against a product’s performance versus models of a similar type or design. Only a very low percentage of high-quality, highly-efficient products will earn the blue energy star logo, to be displayed alongside the Department of Energy’s yellow Energy Guide label. The DOE’s statistical guide details the features and kilowatt usage for each electronic appliance, as well as the estimated annual power costs for that product. Appliances and building materials such as windows, doors, roofing, etc. can all be compared against one another in terms of energy savings and other environmentally green practices. In this manner, educated consumers can not only make a difference in the environment, but also a see positive impact upon their utility bills as well. The environmental benefits of green building can be combined with the alluring aspects of saving money so that even the average homeowner can do both. No matter what home you live in, no matter how long you’ve lived there — there are green techniques you can immediately implement in your own household that will bring you immediate, unquestionable benefits.
