Improvements in insulation and compressors mean today's freezers consume much less energy than older models. Select a freezer that's earned the ENERGY STAR for maximum energy savings and the latest features.
Cut your utility bills.
Freezers that have earned the ENERGY STAR are at least 10 percent more energy efficient than the minimum federal standard.
The older the freezer, the higher your bills.
An estimated 35 million freezers are currently in use in the United States. Over 16 million of these freezers are more than 10 years old, costing consumers $940 million per year on their energy bills.
Protect the environment.
Nearly 70 percent of U.S. electricity is generated with coal and natural gas, which release greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. ENERGY STAR certified freezers use less energy and help us reduce our impact on the environment.
