ENERGY STAR® qualified heating and cooling equipment meets strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the EPA. It also uses less energy, helps save money on utility bills and reduces environmental impact.

We’ll help you find ways to reduce your energy bills, protect the environment and make your home a comfortable place to live.

Heating and cooling costs the average homeowner about $1,000 per year – nearly half the home’s total annual energy bill. Depending on where you live, replacing your old heating and cooling equipment with ENERGY STAR® qualified products can cut your annual energy bill by more than $200.
