ENERGY STAR Helps you heat your home for less

Whether you use air, water, or another fluid, heating and cooling systems use a lot of energy. The good news is that you can cut your energy use and costs significantly with ENERGY STAR® qualified air-source heat pumps and water heaters.

Air-source heat pumps use the difference between outdoor air temperatures and indoor air temperatures to cool and heat your home. ENERGY STAR qualified air-source heat pumps are 20% more efficient than standard new models and 20% to 50% more efficient than older models.

Using a hot water heater? You can cut your electric water heating costs in half with an ENERGY STAR qualified heat pump water heater. That means saving almost $300 per year on electricity bills for the average household.
