energy efficient products for winter time

Bet on energy efficiency this winter. Shop smart for Christmas and the whole winter. Consider products for your home (and gifts) that are energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly.

This winter, consider energy-efficient home electronics, office products, power tools, home appliances, festive displays and lighting...

They are better for the environment and you will get lower energy bills. Save energy and money by looking for products carrying environmental and energy efficient labels.

They are easy to find, they aren't necessarily more expensive. Prefer Energy Star, Design for the Environment (USA, Canada), EU Eco, Australia Green Beings, Energy Saving Trust UK or other energy-certified products.

Waste

Be also aware of the waste problem. Paper, plastic shopping bags, decorations, Christmas trees, batteries or holiday lights are a source of energy waste. See: Christmas Waste and Energy Inefficiency

Pay attention to the quality and durability of your gifts. Save energy and money, reduce waste and help the environment.

Home electronics for Christmas and Winter

When buying televisions, stereos, DVD players, cordless phones, external power adapters, cameras and MP3 players, pay attention to their energy efficiency.

In the North America but also in Europe or Australia and other countries see if the models of electronics you want to buy carry on environmental labels and meet energy-efficiency requirements. You will save money in the end, and the environment will benefit.

Prefer energy efficient office products for energy savingsOffice Products

Also pay attention to the energy efficiency and the environmental side of office products, when shopping, this winter. Computers and their monitors, printers, fax machines, and other office products for your home or for your gifts, should comply with energy-efficiency requirements. You will save money over the lifetime of these products.

Power tools and appliances for Winter and Christmas

Also consider power tools, clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators, and other appliances or heating solutions (heaters, furnaces, heat pumps...) with a high energy-efficient rating.

A typical American or European household spends more than $1,500 a year on energy bills and their contribution to greenhouse gases to the environment roughly doubles that of an average car - a good reason to shop for high efficient appliances and heating products this winter.

You may, if you want, remain faithful to popular brands (Bosh, Black & Decker, GM, GE, etc.). Just prefer certified models. The best brands have many models of appliances and power tools with different energy efficiency ratings.

Just look for the best rated. The best energy-efficiency refrigerators, clothes washers can easily use 20% to 50% less energy than standard models.
