Using Energy Labels

Improve Your Home’s Efficiency

We all know the importance of energy efficiency. The more efficient your home, the less money you will spend on utilities and heating bills each month. But did you know that there are also labels to help identify how energy-efficient a product is? These labels can be found on anything from appliances to building materials and they range in levels from A+ to G (with A+ being the most efficient). At we’ll discuss how these labels work and what you should keep in mind when purchasing products for your home!

The first thing to note about these labels is that the number you see on a label represents an efficiency rating for both heating and cooling. This means that if you’re looking to purchase something like a window, look at how many stars it has in each category because this will tell you its overall energy star rating!


Unfortunately, not all products have been assigned ratings by FENSA so when shopping around for items such as insulation or solar panels, there won’t be any official numbers listed. However, government agencies tend to verify certain companies’ claims of their own efficiency levels which can give you a sense of what your product’s actual rating may be. And although no one knows exactly what number will equate to specific savings just yetas different countries have varying standards), each industry seems to agree on the idea that more stars are better.

So, if you’re looking for ways to save money and be efficient with your energy use, make sure you keep an eye out for these labels! Not only will they help increase your home’s efficiency but it can also ensure that any products or appliances you purchase are energy-efficient as well.
