ENERGY STAR is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices.  The ENERGY STAR label is an international symbol. This universally recognized logo contains the word "energy" and a star shape situated beneath a half circle line and placed within a turquoise blue box.  ENERGY STAR product specifications establish the criteria for a product to meet before it can receive the label. These specifications allow the consumer to know that the product they are purchasing delivers both the features and the performance they demand as well as providing increased energy efficiency. But what if the ENERGY STAR product costs a bit more than another conventional brand? Well, that is part of the qualifying criteria to get the label.  The ENERGY STAR label assures the customer that they will recover this additional investment in a reasonable amount of time through energy savings. More information  can be found at Natural Resources Canada, Office of Energy Efficiency. This government website provides general consumer information, a list of frequently asked questions about ENERGY STAR and information on any rebates and incentives for purchasing ENERGY STAR appliances and products.  London Public Library also keeps print copies of the government ENERGY STAR guides and documents that you can peruse in the library.  So, whether you are a buyer or a builder, check out the web site or the print resources before making your next major purchase and see how you can help save the environment - and some cash.
