Save Energy, Save Money
Does anyone else have a house full of electronics? From the washer and dryer to the sound bar connected to your television, everything takes energy. Every winter it seems like our electric bill sky rockets, so in order to keep it to a minimum in the long term, we are evaluating all of our electronics to see just how much energy they take.
Now, I knew all about ENERGY STAR® when it came to my appliances like the washer and dryer. But, did you know that there are ENERGY STAR certified sound bars? Yes, even your recreational tech toys are now becoming more energy efficient, and I could not be more excited!
Best Buy sent me some very interesting statistics and just how much purchasing ENERGY STAR certified appliances can help our planet. For example, in 2015 Best Buy customers purchased ENERGY STAR® certified products to collectively save enough energy to help power 70,538 households for a year. Not only that but, Best Buy customers purchased 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!
That is one thing that I love about Best Buy is their commitment to providing sustainable products to help keep our energy use to a minimum. This also means that our electric bills will also be reduced, saving us money in the long run.
If everyone in the United States used energy efficient dryers Americans could save $1.5 billion each year in utility costs and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 2 million vehicles.
Plus, on top of the yearly savings you will see in your electric bill, there are often rebates available from utility companies when you purchase smart home products and appliances. So, be sure to check out the rebate finder to see if any of your recent purchases qualify!
