Appliances—EnerGuide

The mandatory EnerGuide label

The energy consumption of a major appliance is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh) per year: the lower the number, the more efficient the model.

An appliance’s mandatory EnerGuide label shows the model type and its annual energy consumption in kWh. It also uses a pointer to show where that value falls on a scale of energy efficiency for similar models. Use this value and scale to compare appliances.

The EnerGuide label may incorporate the ENERGY STAR® symbol for qualified models.

The EnerGuide label is not mandatory for gas ranges.
