Focus on Energy makes no guarantees on the savings from eligible equipment, as many factors dictate exactly how much energy you will save, including weather and behavior patterns. However, the Focus on Energy program has chosen products with typically high savings estimates, compared to standard products, for the reward offerings.
Here are some examples of potential savings:
- High efficiency furnace: An ENERGY STAR furnace is 15 percent more efficient than a conventional furnace
- High efficiency boiler: An ENERGY STAR boiler is 5 percent more efficient than a new, standard model
You may be choosing a model that is more efficient than the baseline ENERGY STAR requirements, and if you are replacing an older product that does not meet current standards, your savings will be substantially higher.
