If you’re thinking about buying a new appliance, consider the full cost of ownership over the life of the appliance.
When buying an appliance, check estimated annual costs. You can find an estimate of the annual energy cost on the yellow Energy Guide label on the appliance. The label will also show you how this appliance rates in terms of energy use compared to similar models.
Look for ENERGY STAR on appliance labels. Consider choosing an ENERGY STAR-labeled appliance. The ENERGY STAR rating means an appliance meets strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. Remember to purchase the right size appliance for your needs. Buying something bigger and more powerful than you need means you may end up paying for unneeded energy.
