Advanced Lighting

ENERGY STAR qualified light fixtures and bulbs come in many shapes and sizes. This gives home buyers a wide range of lighting choices that allow them to create the atmosphere they want for their homes. ENERGY STAR lighting offers significant cost savings and longer lifetimes when compared to standard products. On average, ENERGY STAR qualified bulbs and fixtures use about 75 percent less energy than traditional models.

A comprehensive package of ENERGY STAR qualified appliances can reduce energy costs, while offering improved performance, quality, and durability. ENERGY STAR certified homes often include ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines, ceiling fans, and ventilation fans.

Benefits of ENERGY STAR Labeled Products: ENERGY STAR qualified products are more efficient, which saves you money on utility bills. They must also meet strict quality standards, which mean they are of a more durable, higher quality.
