SAVING CUSTOMERS $2.8 BILLION WITH ENERGY STAR®

In 2017, we committed to saving our customers $2.8 billion in energy costs and helping customers avoid 20 million metric tons of CO2 emissions through the sale of ENERGY STAR certified products.

In 2017 alone, we saved customers almost $1 billion in energy costs and helped them avoid 6 million metric tons of CO2. According to the EPA, the typical American household spends about $2,000 a year on energy bills – and with ENERGY STAR products, a home can use up to 30% less energy while saving more than $575 a year on energy bills. We are proud to offer ENERGY STAR products across our store, making it easy for customers to choose products that save money and protect the environment.

SEAL AND INSULATE

Your home is your retreat and the biggest investment most of us will make in our lifetimes.

Over time, the envelope of the home can wear out from weather and develop gaps and cracks that can begin to cause drafts and air leaks. And even without leaks, heating and cooling accounts for nearly half the energy costs of the typical home. Acording to the EPA the typical home has so many gaps, cracks and holes in the home’s envelope that it’s equal to leaving a window open year round. By adding insulation to the attic and properly sealing gaps and cracks around the home, the typical home can save $200 a year or more on energy costs. If you’re not sure if you need more insulation, the EPA ENERGY STAR program recommends a simple solution: if you can see the floor joists inside your attic, you need more insulation. Replace old weather stripping and door sweeps, and seal gaps and cracks around windows, doors and pipe entry points with caulk or spray foam.

Properly sealing and insulating your home not only helps prevent drafts, it also helps keep pests like rodents, snakes and insects from finding their way into the home.

Appliances for Energy Efficiency

ENERGY STAR APPLIANCES

Appliances play a big part in our daily lives, from the kitchen to the laundry room.

Our assortment of ENERGY STAR appliances help you save on your utility bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by using up to 25% less energy than a standard model, all without sacrificing performance.

We are proud to partner with the EPA’s Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) program which ensures the safe recovery of refrigerants and insulative foam, the recycling of metals and the permanent retirement of old energy-inefficient appliances.

Energy Efficiency with thermostat

SMART HOME

Technology has become essential to our day-to-day lives, and our homes are no exception.

From smart thermostats that help reduce spikes in heating and cooling to occupancy sensors that turn off lights on their own, smart technology can simplify home energy efficiency and help customers save money while reducing their impact on the environment.

SOLAR ENERGY AND BACKUP POWER

Finding a renewable source of energy for all the life that happens in the home is more attainable than ever.

Typical solar panel systems produce nearly 80% of an average U.S. home’s annual energy needs, enabling energy independence while helping reduce utility bills. Backup home battery systems ensure energy is available when you need it any time of day, even during grid outages. And solar power is good for the planet – the typical residential system helps avoid more than 5 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually, which is equal to planting 130 tree seedlings each year, or removing a typical car from the road for a full year.
