When you have a tight budget you start to look for long lasting ways to save money. You don’t think that saving every penny matters, but soon you realize that every penny does matter! So, that’s why I like looking for products with the ENERGY STAR® label. My favorite place to shop is Best Buy so it only makes sense to make those important purchases from a store that is committed to impacting our environment and community in a positive way. Best Buy provides customers with a wide variety of sustainable products that will save money and energy over time. Get this, in 2015, Best Buy customers purchased enough ENERGY STAR® certified products to collectively save $67,120,515 in annual energy costs!
ENERGY STAR® certified products help protect the environment by using reduced energy. If you would like to learn more about how to save money with ENERGY STAR®, check out this short video and information from the Best Buy corporate website. Take the ENERGY STAR® certified sound bars and/or dryers. Both can help you save money on your utility bill. And, in 2015, Best Buy sold enough ENERGY STAR® certified products to collectively save enough energy to help power 70,538 households for a year! As if that wasn’t enough, Best Buy sold enough ENERGY STAR® certified Audio Equipment and Sound Bars to collectively help prevent the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to removing 2,013 cars from the road for an entire year.
So, how do ENERGY STAR® certified products help to protect the environment by reducing energy? ENERGY STAR® certified consumer electronic products save energy in comparison to non-certified products. They can do this because they are more efficient in all usage modes: sleep, idle, and on. Reduced energy helps to: Fight climate change, Reduce carbon emissions and other pollutants, Preserve more of the Earth’s natural resources. ENERGY STAR® certified products save customers money. Their products come with two price tags: the purchase price and the cost of operating the products. Best Buy offers a large selection of energy-efficient products, including ENERGY STAR® certified consumer electronics and appliances. You can check out the complete ENERGY STAR® certified product line up right here.
ENERGY STAR® is a good choice for people interested in reducing their energy bill while helping to protect the environment. Did you know that ENERGY STAR® certified dryers use 20% LESS energy than conventional models without sacrificing features or performance? Many ENERGY STAR® dryers also include convenient features, such as steam cycles that can help save time on ironing clothes by preventing wrinkles. More than 80 percent of American homes have a clothes dryer, so the savings opportunity is huge, especially if you have three kids doing their own laundry! If all clothes dryers sold in the US were ENERGY STAR® certified, Americans could save $1.5 billion each year in utility costs and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 2 million vehicles. To choose a dryer that saves energy and money while protecting the environment, look for the ENERGY STAR® label.
In my home, audio and video equipment is a huge part of our world! The ENERGY STAR® sound bars are up to 50% MORE efficient that of a conventional model. That means it’s time to upgrade your entertainment equipment! Check out the awesome techy products made to save money and energy!
