Buying new appliances

When your parents are buying new appliances or equipment, get them to look at the energy efficiency star-rating label. The more stars, the better.

Check the energy consumption figure on the label too because the number tells you how much actual energy the appliance or equipment is likely to use in a year.

For more information on energy efficiency star-ratings, go to Energy Star and Energy Rating websites.
