What is an energy efficient label?

  • Indicates how energy efficient an electrical device is

  • Ratings between 1-5 stars, higher the better

  • Introduced by Energy Commissions is 2006

Energy efficient labels indicate how well an electrical appliance is at being energy efficient. It uses a star-rating system with 1-star being the lowest rating; while a 5-star rating being the highest. The label was introduced by Energy Commission (Suruhanjaya Tenaga) in 2006 and can only be found on electrical products which meet the energy efficiency standards tests.

Fans, televisions, air-conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines and microwave ovens all require a label before it can be sold. So consider getting a 5-star rating product the next time you shop around for any of these products.  The benefits are adding up as many stars as possible is that you stand to save more energy, thus more savings will be reflected in your energy bill. Being energy efficient directly lowers your carbon footprint too resulting in less damage to our planet.

A list of products which have an energy efficient label:

  • Fans

  • Televisions

  • Air-conditioners

  • Refrigerators

  • Washing machines

  • Microwave ovens

How to read a energy efficient label?

The labels are mostly found either on the front or the side of a product. If those faces don’t present any, try looking at the back! Finding it is half the job done, now for the other half – learning how to read the label. Thankfully, it’s pretty straightforward with most to the number crunching already done for us. In the image above you’ll find the kind information you can find on the label.

Keeping in the mind the important stats to know are the number-of-stars in the rating (picking a higher star rating is generally better) and how much energy that saves you over the course of the year. And for those who like to compare products side-by-side, the label also highlights how much energy it saves compared to a similar product of only a 2-star rating.
