Energy rating labels allow you to compare energy efficiency and consumption across a range of appliances and equipment.
This means you can:
- buy more efficient models
- consume less energy
- save money
- reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Different types of energy labels
Energy Rating Label
The Energy Rating Label is an Australian Government initiative. The label uses stars as a way to show the efficiency of an appliance. The more stars, the more efficient the product is.
You can use this star rating to compare other models of the same capacity.
Most appliances are rated between 1 and 6 stars. But as technology gets better, so does energy efficiency. That’s why an extra row of stars have been introduced. So the highest rating is now 10 stars.
