What is Energy Star® Certification?
Energy Star certification is a program run by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that promotes energy-efficient products and practices. The program helps consumers and businesses save money on energy bills while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
To earn Energy Star certification, a product or building must meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA. These guidelines cover a wide range of products, from appliances and electronics to heating and cooling systems and even entire buildings.
What is Energy Star® Testing?
Energy Star testing is a rigorous process that ensures products and buildings meet the program’s energy efficiency standards. The testing process includes both lab testing and field testing to ensure that products and buildings perform as expected in real-world conditions.
To achieve Energy Star certification, products and buildings must undergo Energy Star testing. The testing process is designed to identify areas where energy efficiency can be improved, so products and buildings can be optimized for maximum energy savings.
