Life Cycle Cost Savings

For most applications, Energy Star-qualified A/V equipment has the lowest life-cycle cost. An efficient product is cost effective when the energy costs saved over the life of the product exceed the additional upfront cost (if any) of the more efficient model. Energy Star considers both upfront costs and lifetime energy cost savings when setting required efficiency levels. Federal purchasers can assume that Energy Star-qualified products are life-cycle cost effective.

ENERGY STAR certified audio/video equipment is up to 50% more efficient than conventional models. Blu-Ray players that earn the ENERGY STAR label are, on average, 45% more efficient than conventional models.
