ENERGY STAR® qualified models have more efficient refrigeration coils, compressors, and fans than conventional models, which means they use less energy to eliminate moisture.
An ENERGY STAR® certified dehumidifier removes the same amount of moisture as a similarly-sized standard unit, but uses 15% less energy. In fact, the annual energy saved by ENERGY STAR® certified dehumidifiers could power your ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator for 3 months!
