Let the EnerGuide label help you decide.
Choosing an energy-efficient showerhead
Prices vary, but the cost is usually recovered from energy savings in less than one year. Look for features such as spray adjustments, spray pattern and coverage, forcefulness, quiet operation, and ease of cleaning.
Looking for a new dishwasher or washing machine?
It pays to read the EnerGuide label and comparison shop for the most energy-efficient model. Remember: the lower the kWh rating, the better the efficiency.
Appliances last for many years, and the “second price tag” – the cost of running the appliance – can add up to more than the initial purchase price. Use the EnerGuide label to help you shop smart.
Look for the EnerGuide label
All new major appliances carry an EnerGuide label to show that appliance’s energy consumption and a CSA label to indicate that it meets safety standards. EnerGuide labels tell you how many kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy you can expect that model to use each year.
This number is the expected annual energy consumption of the appliance in kWh. The lower the number, the higher the savings.
The energy consumption indicator shows you how this model compares to others in its class. The bar below the indicator gives the energy-efficiency range for the class. The further the indicator is to the left end of the scale, the better.
This bar shows the energy consumption of the most and least efficient appliances in this class. In this case, the most efficient comparable model uses 285 kWh per year, while the least efficient uses 484 kWh per year.
