We’re committed to finding the best, most energy efficient products and values for our customers, so we do get a little enthusiastic at Scott’s Heating & Conditioning on almost a daily basis.
So just imagine how Energy Star’s Most Efficient program shot us right over the moon. Here is Energy Star, which already saves customers money by testing cooling and heating systems, appliances and electronics and designating the most efficient ones with its familiar logo. These products run so efficiently that they can save consumers up to 20 percent over previous models.
Now the U.S. Department of Energy has unveiled its Most Efficient Program, which singles out those products that are “truly exceptional, inspirational, or leading edge consistent with the interests of environmentally motivated consumers.”
At Scott’s Air, we liken the Energy Star program to the 10 percent of a college graduating class; its members truly stand out from the other 90 percent. We think of the Most Efficient Program as the magna and summa cum laudes of the 10 percent – members that rank at the very top of an already impressive group.
The Most Efficient Program includes:
- Ceiling fans
- Central air conditioners
- Computer monitors
- Heat pumps
- Ventilating fans
- Washers and dryers
Leave it to the Department of Energy to make the qualifying standards for the Most Efficient program extremely rigorous, difficult and (yes) even highly technical; that’s the way it should be. As a consumer, it may help you to know, for example, that for central air conditioners to gain “admission” into the Most Efficient Program, products must achieve only the highest Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) numbers. Likewise, only the most efficient Energy Star ceiling fans – or those that function at primo efficiency at low, medium and high speeds – are included in the Most Efficient Program. They are the best of the best.
