The ENERGY STAR® program was established in 1992 by EPA to provide simple, credible, and unbiased information that consumers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions about energy efficiency. Since 2009, EPA and the Department of Energy have been working together to implement the program.
Since 1992, ENERGY STAR® and its partners helped American families and businesses save more than 4 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity and achieve over 3.5 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas reductions, equivalent to the annual emissions of more than 750 million cars. In 2018 alone, ENERGY STAR® and its partners helped Americans avoid $35 billion in energy costs.
EPA and DOE determine the criteria for energy efficiency in a wide range of products. The products that meet these criteria can display ENERGY STAR® symbol. Moreover, every year the best-in-class products that meet a tighter set of criteria are recognized as that year’s ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient products. Read on below for details of these two symbols.
What is the significance of an ENERGY STAR® symbol on a dryer?
The energy efficiency of dryers are calculated with a formula that takes into account the energy consumption of the appliance and its drying capacity. Another criteria is to have a maximum cycle time of 80 minutes.
All Beko dryers are ENERGY STAR® certified, so you can’t go wrong with a Beko.
What does “ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient” mean?
Products that meet a tighter set of criteria are awarded with the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient symbol. Overall, ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient certified products consume less energy compared to ENERGY STAR® certified products.
In addition to the standard "Normal" cycle, ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient certified products are also tested with the "Maximum Dryness" setting and are required to be energy efficient in this category as well.
This means, ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient dryers not only consume much less energy than ENERGY STAR® certified dryers but are also proven to do it in every circumstance. It does not get better than this!
Beko's ventless Heat Pump dryers are ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient certified thanks to their innovative technology which helps conserve energy by creating a closed loop system and reusing the warm air inside, instead of venting the hot air off and consuming more energy to heat new air.
