Canada’s Energy Efficiency Regulations establish energy efficiency standards for a wide range of energy-using products, with the objective of eliminating the least efficient products from the Canadian market.
When Canadians want to save energy and money and help the environment, they look for the ENERGY STAR symbol to identify energy-efficient products.
The ENERGY STAR symbol identifies models that meet or exceed premium levels of energy efficiency.
Today, the ENERGY STAR symbol can be found on about 60 product categories, including major appliances; electronics; heating, cooling and ventilating equipment; lighting; office equipment; windows doors and skylights; and commercial products. Since 2005, Canadians can also choose ENERGY STAR qualified homes that are designed and built to achieve maximum energy efficiency.
