Sustainable Products from Best Buy: Save Money and Energy with ENERGY STAR Products
I am a true fan of the Best Buy brand and I love that they are committed to providing sustainable products. One way that they are doing this is by offering ENERGY STAR certified products to help protect the environment by using reduced energy. I have partnered with them today so share with you how ENERGY STAR certified sound bars and/or dryers can help you save money on your utility bill. (yay!)
The folks at Best Buy are committed to positively impacting the environment and our communities and one of the ways that they do this is by offering a large selection of energy-efficient products, including ENERGY STAR certified consumer electronics and appliances. I think that education is key when it comes to these types of products and learning the actual difference that using them can make. Here are a few stats from Best Buy:
In 2015, Best Buy customers purchased enough ENERGY STAR® certified products to collectively save $67,120,515 in annual energy costs.
In 2015, Best Buy customers pruchased ENERGY STAR® certified products to collectively save enough energy to help power 70,538 households for a year.
In 2015, 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.
ENERGY STAR Benefits
ENERGY STAR certified consumer electronic products save energy in comparison to non-certified products because they are more efficient in all usage modes: sleep, idle, and on.
Why choose ENERGY STAR products?
ENERGY STAR is a good choice for people interested in reducing their energy bill while helping to protect the environment.
ENERGY STAR certified products save customers money. Products come with two price tags: the purchase price and the cost of operating the product. ENERGY STAR certified products can help customers save money on operating costs by reducing energy expenses without sacrificing performance.
ENERGY STAR certified products reduce energy usage, which is good for the environment. Reduced energy helps to: Fight climate change, Reduce carbon emissions and other pollutants, Preserve more of the Earth’s natural resources.
ENERGY STAR Products at Best Buy:
ENERGY STAR certified audio/video equipment, including sound bars is up to 50 percent more efficient than conventional models. Consumers can maximize their energy savings by bundling ENERGY STAR certified televisions and sound bars and other products.
“ENERGY STAR certified dryers use 20 percent less energy than conventional models without sacrificing features or performance. They do this using innovative energy saving technologies, such as moisture sensors that detect when clothes are dry and automatically shut the dryer off. 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. 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.
