Full Answer

In the United States, the Federal Trade Commission requires new appliances, with the exception of kitchen ranges, microwave ovens and clothes dryers, to carry a black and yellow EnergyGuide label. This label details the estimated annual energy consumption of the appliance and allows consumers to compare different models. Appliance models that are significantly more energy efficient than the average comparable model earn the Energy Star label.

Consumers may also be able to take advantage of cash incentives, low-interest loans and rebates that offset the higher purchase prices.
