Get the most out of your appliances

Energy use isn’t just about how much energy your appliances are using—it’s also about how efficiently they’re using it. Understanding how much energy they use—and when it might be time to replace them—is essential in keeping your energy costs as low as possible.

Refrigerators that are 15 years old or older could cost you up to 50% more to operate than a new, ENERGY STAR model. So while new appliances aren’t cheap, the up-front cost is well worth it over time.
