What’s the difference between EnerGuide and ENERGY STAR®?

While EnerGuide and ENERGY STAR labels both give you valuable information about an appliance’s efficiency, they mean very different things. The EnerGuide label shows you how much electricity an appliance will use in a year and compares its performance with similar products. ENERGY STAR, on the other hand, is an internationally recognized program that labels the most energy efficient products on the market.

We recommend choosing ENERGY STAR certified appliances; they’re in the top 10 to 30% of their class in energy performance.

All appliances sold in Canada have an EnerGuide label, but not all appliances are ENERGY STAR certified. So to sum it up, two labels are better than one!
