Maytag Ensignia appliances, such as the 3.2-cubic-foot Ensignia washer, are energy-efficient and have earned the Energy Star label from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The federal agency awards the Energy Star label to products that save consumers energy and money and protect the environment without sacrificing performance or comfort.
Clothes washing machines featuring the Energy Star label use 40 percent less water, 25 percent less energy and have a greater tub capacity than regular washers. As of April 2015, owners of Energy Star-certified washers realize $40 annual savings on their utility bills while conserving 3,000 gallons of water, compared to standard machines. Energy Star products also help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
