Energy Savings for Senior Living Centers

Energy Star is a federal program to help families, individuals and businesses save energy. Seniors, too, can benefit by using Energy Star's programs to choose the right appliances, insulating their housing to lower heating and cooling bills, and weatherizing windows and doors to stop those pesky drafts!

HUD spends more than 10% of its annual budget-an estimated $4 billion-on energy. These funds are distributed through utility allowances to renters, housing assistance payments to private building owners, and operating grants to public housing authorities. HUD estimates that installing basic efficiency measures in public housing alone can save taxpayers at least $800 million over the next 10 years.

Renters can save 15% to 20% on their energy bills by installing ENERGY STAR qualified products such as refrigerators, room air conditioners, and lighting.

Learn more about Energy Star information and services at www.EnergyStar.gov where they have lists of Energy Star rated appliances such as refrigerators, telvision sets, toasters, fans, washers and dryers...and yes, even lightbulbs such as CFLs and LEDs!
