Most of us know that an Energy Star logo means that the product uses less energy, but how exactly do our fans earn this certification, and from whom?
Our products must meet strict energy efficiency criteria set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The goal of the Energy Star program is to help people and businesses save money and protect our climate through energy efficiency. There are seventy product categories that comprise Energy Star's product collection. In order for one of these products, such as a vent fan, to be Energy Star certified, the product must be tested in a laboratory that is recognized by the EPA and certified by a third-party.
Panasonic fans: an important part of an Energy Star home
Panasonic set the standard for whisper-quiet, energy efficient ventilation fans. We have been recognized eight years in a row as Energy Star Partner of the Year. In 2014, Energy Star added “Sustained Excellence” to our title because of our perpetual leadership in the energy efficient ventilation fan area.
