and usage information manufacturers are required to provide

Keep the air clean and dust-free with an air purifier in each room, you will feel better breathing in clean air.
On each EnergyGuide label you can find important information
such as manufacturer and model number, information about features,
capacity, and size, and the energy efficiency rating for the
product. The energy efficiency rating lets consumers know
how energy-efficient the equipment is and provides a way to
compare the costs of operating it. Higher energy efficiency
ratings mean more energy-efficiency and fewer costs to operate
EnergyGuide labels also provide other useful information
like the range of energy efficiency ratings for similar models.
This scale shows the range of ratings for similar models from
less efficient to more efficient. Extremely beneficial, this
scale allows for the comparison of a particular model to the
The next time you are in the market for new heating &
cooling equipment, make sure you pay attention to the EnergyGuide
