Choose ENERGY STAR® and Save.
Home electronics products, such as televisions, computers and monitors, DVD players, digital video recorders, and audio equipment, account for about 15% of household electricity use. Although they may be turned off, many of these products still use electricity while they are in "standby / off" power mode to maintain digital clocks, displays, and other internal features.
An ENERGY STAR qualified electronic has met strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. They use less energy when the product is on and also less energy when it's in stand-by, sleep or "off" mode. ENERGY STAR qualified electronic products offer the same features and technologies as non-qualified products, but they use less energy, and this saves you money on your electric bill.
Many of the most popular brands make ENERGY STAR qualified models that have all the latest featured and technologies that you are looking for. ENERGY STAR electronics save money and energy without losing quality or performance.
