Prominently featured on every appliance, the EnerGuide label allows you to quickly compare the energy efficiency of one appliance with another.
An EnerGuide label does not mean the appliance is energy efficient – it only indicates where the appliance falls on an energy-efficiency scale.
All appliances have EnerGuide labels, but some are more energy efficient than others. Be sure to carefully check its efficiency level.
Shows the annual energy consumption of the appliance in kilowatt hours. Look for the lowest number possible.
The energy consumption indicator lets you know how this model compares to others in its class. The bar below the indicator gives the energy efficiency range for this class of appliance. The further the indicator is to the left end of the scale, the better.
This bar shows you the energy consumption of the most and least efficient appliances in this class. In this case, the most efficient comparable model consumes 564 kWh per year while the least efficient uses 972 kWh per year.
The type and capacity range of similar models are compared.
