Energy Star Now Labeling "Most Efficient"

The Energy Star program has been working on making its qualifications stricter, but across all the appliances there are still many bearing the label that aren't really that much of an improvement over other models.  To make it clearer which appliances are really the best of the best, Energy Star will now identify the top tier appliances with a "Most Efficient" label.

The new label will apply to just 5 percent of Energy Star washing machines, heating and cialis professional 100 mg cooling equipment, televisions and refrigerators/freezers.  The EPA may add more categories of viagra uk delivery appliances later this year.

To give you an idea of what the new label means, for refrigerators/freezers to earn the "Most Efficient" title, they have to be 30 percent more efficient than standard models, while TVs will have to be about 80 percent more efficient that standard models.  Out of the existing 1,800 refrigerators and freezers that are Energy Star certified, only 15 qualify for the new label, while only 18 out of the 1,400 Energy Star TVs qualify.

While the Energy Star label should carry more weight than it does, it's still a good that the most efficient appliances are being properly identified and hopefully the new label will inspire more competition from companies to create even more efficient products.

Energy Efficiency is an important area that needs improvement and Energy Star's new label sounds good.

However governments could also help with regulation. In Japan the model that is the most efficient sets the order viagra usa standard fro all following models. Now that raises the bar high and means even quicker efficiency improvements.

You wrote "there are still many baring the label". You should have written "there are still many bearing the label".
