How to Read Your Appliances
Since 1980, all appliances sold in the United States have been required by the Federal Trade Commission to carry an Energy Guide label. The original intent of this label was to inform consumers of just how energy efficient -or inefficient - their white goods (refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, etc.), heating and cooling equipment, and water heaters are in use.
Since that time, however, some energy prices in this country have skyrocketed, and many industrialized nations are focusing on developing policies to meet Kyoto protocols (which call for a significant reduction in harmful emissions - mainly carbon dioxide). This has led some groups to believe that Energy Guide labels should do more than simply inform, they should encourage buyers to purchase appliances with higher efficiencies. The largest such group in this country is the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), which is leading research to develop a label that is less confusing and more influential in consumer purchasing.
"The current label has too much information and can sometimes be confusing, misleading or unreadable," says Steven Nadel, executive director for the ACEEE. "We have researched, surveyed and tested various labels around the world, and we have proposed a new label that we feel will be easier to understand, provide motivating information and positively impact the energy efficiency of consumer purchase decisions." The ACEEE is planning on submitting a petition to change the current label to the FTC in the early fall, and so far both groups have been working together to improve the current label. There are others in the U.S. government who would like to see changes made as well. Two separate energy bills that recently passed through both the House and Senate included language urging clearer Energy Guide labels.
The ACEEE's recommended label appears on this page, and the current version with helpful pointers is at right.
