If you’ve been in business long enough, you already know that energy efficient equipment isn’t only good for the environment but also cost-effective for your company’s bottom line. It’s just a question of finding the right products to meet your needs.
Here’s a simple but valuable tip that could save you thousands of dollars over time – buy equipment that has earned the Energy Star label.
Energy Star is a trusted, government supported symbol for energy efficiency that was established 20 years ago to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants and make it simpler for consumers to identify and purchase products that offer substantial savings on energy bills.
Products that carry the Energy Star label have met the Environmental Protection Agency’s criteria for contributing significant energy savings, meeting the performance demands of consumers, and delivering increased energy efficiency.
Many workplace products qualify for the Energy Star label. These include appliances (such as refrigerators and water coolers); building products (such as windows, doors, skylights, roofing materials, seal and insulation products); computers; electronics; heating and cooling systems; and plumbing. In addition to lowering your energy bills, adding Energy Star products and equipment at your office or facility could qualify your business for certain tax credits.
