What Is Your Energy Guide Label Telling You?

All appliances seem to be rather expensive these days and Air Conditioners are no different. Shopping for a new air conditioning system can become very overwhelming if you are not aware of what you are looking for. By paying attention to the yellow EnergyGuide label on your appliance, you can find the information you need without spending hours researching every product.

When it comes to saving money, we always look for stores that are having big sales and gimicks. But what if we told you that saving money is not in the price of the system itself, but the amount of what you will be saving year-round. People tend to panic when the total amount of a product is revealed to them. In reality, what they should be focusing on is the item they are investing in. Air Conditioners are not like other appliances such as refrigerators or washers, which could be easily replaced. Instead, these major products are long term items that impact your home in a major way.

Today, major appliances are required to meet the standards of the U.S Department of Energy. In order to meet this requirement by law, manufacturers must test the efficiency of the product before it could be sold to the public. The information on the EnergyGuide label describes the results of the energy test that was performed. The label supplies information including the amount of energy the appliance consumes, comparison of energy usage to other models as well as the approximate amount of annual operating costs (which can vary by the use of the consumer). This information can not be altered to benefit a company.

EnergyGuide Label

Here is a quick guide at what's on the label:

Energy Star
If you have this logo anywhere on the product, this indicates that the product has gone through extensive testing that meets strict energy efficiency guidelines.

Range Of Cost
This information is located in the center of the label. This explains the approximate annual cost of operating the unit. This is what you would use to compare this amount with other models.

Annual Energy Consumption
This amount is the yearly energy consumption that is based on the national average cost of fuel. In other words, what you would be using annually.

Product Details
This information is located at the top right corner of the label. This describes the model number and brand.

As you can see, this EnergyGuide label is not just for looks. It provides information to all consumers about the product and how it works efficiently. This is a great tool to go by when choosing the proper Air Conditioning system for your home.
