When you’re buying a new appliance for your home, look for its energy label. The energy label tells you how much energy that appliance uses, comparing it to similar appliances. This can help you find appliances that use the least amount of energy.
You should also consider the size of the appliance you need. Only buy the size you need, as larger items will use more energy and end up costing you more. For example, you buy a family-sized dishwasher but never manage to fill it with dirty dishes each time you use it. You may be wasting energy and therefore money on your electricity bills.
