ENERGY STAR Training Center


Heating and Cooling

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) products that have earned the ENERGY STAR meet the government's strict energy efficiency criteria and save energy without compromising on product quality and performance. They use less energy, lowering consumers' utility bills while preventing greenhouse gas emissions.

The links below will take you to training materials and other tools you can download and use as-is, or incorporate into your own training materials. This is a complimentary resource EPA provides to its partners. Each training piece will provide you with up-to-date savings numbers and key messaging to help you, your staff, and your vendors communicate effectively to consumers about the benefits of purchasing products that have earned the ENERGY STAR.
