Posted on Energy Efficiency November 17, 2010 by John Brescia

Many homes are slowly becoming more conscious about their ac power consumption and are beginning to follow energy-saving tips to help reduce their bills and help save the environment. One of the things that many people encounter is the “ENERGY STAR” label on their newly chosen AC unit, but what does it mean? In this article I will go over how FL air conditioning systems become Energy Star labeled. This will help you make a better choice when choosing an AC Unit for your home.

According to the ENERGY STAR website, the ENERGY STAR label “is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices.” By creating this label, individuals know that the product they are purchasing will help them save energy.

There are specific requirements that must be met by air conditioning systems in order to receive an ENERGY STAR label. These requirements are based on the product’s energy consumption and how it performs, which must be verified and measured by a test. The AC Unit must also provide all the features and performance needed by consumers as well as being energy efficient.

The ENERGY STAR label is a reliable way to know that once you purchase that product you will benefit tremendously and will be able to save energy that will not only help you, but our planet.
