Bringing energy efficiency into your home is always in style, but the energy-saving fixtures can be stylish, too. Here are some of the most common energy-efficient upgrades that won’t take away from the aesthetic of your home.

Lighting

The lighting that you have in your home can blend in with the background or be used as a statement piece. No matter what you choose to do with your lighting fixtures, energy-efficient options are always available. These include tables, desk or floor lamps, hard-wired lighting for inside or outside of your home, wall fixtures and more. Choosing to use an energy-efficient light bulb will help you use 90% less energy, and it will produce anywhere from 70-90% less heat.

Appliances

A home is full of appliances, and there are plenty of different types that can be both stylish and energy-efficient. Some of the advantages of choosing energy-efficient appliances can include:

  • Washing machines and dryers: These two machines can end up a big chunk of the energy in your home, so put a stop to that and go with an energy-saving option. And lucky for you, energy-efficient washers and dryers come in a wide range of colors and finishes.
  • Refrigerators: Appliances are made to be more energy-efficient today than ever before. Today, refrigerators use 40% less energy than they did 15 years ago. And just like washers and dryers, refrigerators come in a variety of colors and finishes for you to choose from.
  • Dishwashers: Kitchen appliances are used pretty often, so be sure that you’re saving money each time you use them. Dishwashers, in particular, tend to use a lot of energy and water – switching to an energy-saving option can save you around $45 each year.
