What does Energy Star Rated mean?
The ENERGY STAR label on a home device means that it has been designed and built to standards well above similar devices in terms of energy efficiency. An Energy Star certified dehumidifier will have newer technology for managing its energy consumption – this leads to cheaper electricity costs, better quality, higher output, and better durability. It also means that the dehumidifier is a better value for today, and a better investment for tomorrow. An ENERGY STAR label is designed to give buyers the peace of mind when purchasing.
As an Energy Star rated dehumidifier you can be assured that it has undergone a strict process for inspections, testing, and meets strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Products such as portable air conditioners and dehumidifiers earn the ENERGY STAR label only when an independent third-party (an accredited Home Energy Rater or HERS verified rating) verifies that they meet the EPA ENERGY STAR guidelines.
What does HERS stand for?
Known as the HERS Index, it stands for Home Energy Rating System. This index is the industry standard for measuring a home’s energy efficiency. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s overall energy performance.
