Earning the ENERGY STAR means products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Lighting products that have earned the ENERGY STAR deliver exceptional features, while using less energy. Saving energy helps you save money on utility bills and protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the fight against climate change.
ENERGY STAR Certified ceiling fan/light combination units:
- are 60% more efficient than conventional fan/light units, which can save you more than $15 per year on utility bills.
- use improved motors and blade designs.
If your fan doesn't include lighting, be sure to purchase an ENERGY STAR certified light kit. This lighting is efficient and long lasting, so you won't have to make frequent bulb changes.
