The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. Regardless, Energy Awareness Month is something I feel is important and all opinions are 100% my own.
Did you know that the federal government designated October as Energy Awareness Month? They actually did this in 1991 believe it or not! Best Buy wants to help you celebrate and will help you in finding ENERGY STAR® certified products to help you save money on your energy costs! Best Buy has more than 2,300 unique ENERGY STAR certified products available in Best Buy stores and online. What are great way to celebrate, huh? 😉 Many of us are working hard at having green homes and Best Buy can definitely help us make that happen!
What is ENERGY STAR?
ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency. For more information see http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=about.ab_index.
Being that October is Energy Awareness Month, it’s a great time to upgrade to a new energy-efficient appliance, television or computer to save money on your home energy bills. We would all appreciate saving money, right!? The average home’s annual energy bill is $2,200 and energy efficient products can save you money. Check out how much you can save with a new appliance by visiting the Best Buy ENERGY STAR page and checking out the Savings Calculator Worksheets. Having a degree in accounting I am always wanting to see the numbers and this is a great way to REALLY see what you can save!
Beyond savings from simply having energy efficient products, local utility companies provide additional rebates that can save you up to $300! To find rebates available in your area, check out the Best Buy online rebate finder.
Our most recent purchase of ENERGY STAR appliances was our washer and dryer and I can’t tell you how happy I am with the decision we made! You can check out washers and dryers, refrigerators, dish washers, televisions, laptops, printers and more, all ENERGY STAR and all at Best Buy.
What are you waiting for? Get to your local Best Buy location and start celebrating Energy Awareness Month while also making your home more green!
