Energy efficient has become a term that is tossed around quite a bit in today’s energy conscious society. Whether for the purpose of reducing ones carbon footprint and saving the planet or simply saving a dime, many consumers are interested in purchasing products that are energy efficient.
What exactly makes a product energy efficient? What are the guidelines used to determine the level of energy a product produces before it is considered energy efficient?
In simpler terms, energy efficiency refers to the ability of a machine to produce the same results as a similar product using less energy. This has been achieved in recent years with the many technological advances in the fields of construction materials, chemical application, and insulation.
There are many governing body’s which set forth the criteria here in the United States of what constitutes an energy efficient product. The NFRC (National Fenestration Ratings Counsil) works with many industries to determine the standard for many products. When purchasing a product, one way of determining how energy efficient a product is would be to visit their website and compare similar products. You can also locate energy efficient products from Energy Star’s website.
Going green with energy efficient products is a great way to preserve our Earth and to save money on your heating and cooling costs.
