Looking for high-efficiency products?
Look for the ENERGY STAR symbol.
ENERGY STAR® is the mark of high-efficiency products in Canada. The familiar symbol makes it easy to identify the best energy performers on the market.
ENERGY STAR certified products meet strict technical specifications for energy performance—tested and certified.
They save energy without compromising performance in any way. Typically, an ENERGY STAR certified product is in the top 15 to 30 percent of its class for energy performance. Saving energy saves you money and reduces your impact on the environment.
ENERGY STAR Most Efficient is an annual designation awarded to the best of the best: it identifies models that rank at the very top of ENERGY STAR certified models in select product categories in the current calendar year. See the list of products designated ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2016.
