ROOM AIR CONDITIONERS ENERGY STAR ® SALES ASSOCIATE TRAINING
ENERGY STAR qualified products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by: The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) The US Department of Energy (DOE) ENERGY STAR Saves energy Reduces pollution Saves money www.energystar.gov WHAT IS ENERGY STAR?
WHAT ARE ENERGY STAR QUALIFIED ROOM AIR CONDITIONERS? ENERGY STAR qualified room air conditioners exceed minimum federal standards for energy consumption by at least 10% due to features like: High-efficiency compressors Fan motors Heat transfer surfaces Timers Improved insulation ENERGY STAR qualified room air conditioners remove more heat from the air into the coils than conventional models, which saves energy required to compress the refrigerant.
SAVING ENERGY EQUALS SAVING MONEY ENERGY STAR qualified products use less energy and cost less to operate resulting in: The average home spends $300 a year on utility costs to run their appliances. Replacing a 10-year old air conditioner with a new ENERGY STAR qualified model can save about $15 annually on utility costs or up to $180 over the lifetime of the unit.
WHY SAVE ENERG? SAVING ENERGY HELPS PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT If just one in 10 homes replaced their appliances with ENERGY STAR, the change would reduce air pollution by 600 million pounds per year – equivalent to planting 1.7 million new acres of trees.
WHY BUY ENERGY STAR? High quality performance More efficient motors and improved insulation make ENERGY STAR qualified room air conditioners quieter than conventional models Timers, on some models, yield even greater energy savings Save money without sacrifice Save an average of $180 on utility bills over the lifetime of the unit depending on the size of the unit replaced
WHICH BRANDS ARE ENERGY STAR QUALIFIED? Trusted brands like these… Electrolux Fedders GE Appliances Haier LG Electronics [Customize as appropriate]
SNAPSHOT ENERGY STAR is: A government-backed program (www.energystar.gov) dedicated to helping individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency. Look for the ENERGY STAR symbol on qualified room air conditioners. Saving energy reduces the burning of fossil fuels, which leads to less air pollution and ultimately reduces global warming. ENERGY STAR qualified room air conditioners: Are more energy efficient and run more quietly with: High efficiency compressors Fan motors Heat transfer surfaces Improved insulation Can save an average of $180 over the lifetime of the unit
2004 Cool Change Campaign THEME: Make a Cool Change TIMING: April – August GOAL: Increase awareness of ENERGY STAR qualified cooling equipment and benefits of energy efficiency FEATURED PRODUCTS: Heating, Cooling and Ventilation Products, Room Air Conditioners, Programmable Thermostats, Ceiling Fans
