For the past decade energy efficient appliances have become more and more popular.  Now days you can find energy star appliances at department stores and local businesses. 

Joe Welsh from Home Depot noticed a huge difference in his electric bill when he switched out his old appliances for Energy Star items. 

“I noticed a dramatic difference the very first year I had them,” says Welsh.

A refrigerator will save you the most money and energy.  According to Welsh a new refrigerator will save you enough energy to power your house for four months. 

Welsh also says new energy efficient appliances will save you one third of the cost on your electric bill.
