Why I should upgrade to energy efficient appliances

Texas has some of the highest electricity rates in the country, so updating to energy-efficient appliances can help reduce your monthly electric bill more than average. Updating to energy efficient appliances really does save energy- the EPA estimates that Energy-Star products save more than 150 million metric tons of greenhouse gases each year. 

               

What can you do?

  • Look for the Energy-Star labels when shopping for new appliances
  • Dispose of your old appliances properly to avoid leakage of any toxic chemicals that may be there
  • Keep your appliances in good condition- check filters and water tanks regularly to prevent build-up from making your appliances less energy-efficient
