FRIGIDAIRE RECEIVES PRESTIGIOUS ENERGY STAR AWARD
March 02, 2010
The newly introduced Frigidaire appliance line received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s prestigious 2010 ENERGY STAR award for Excellence in ENERGY STAR Promotion. The award, which recognizes Frigidaire’s commitment to smart energy management, and efforts to communicate the importance of energy efficiency to a wide audience, specifically recognizes the brand’s Swap and Save™ Energy Conservation Program.
The Swap and Save program was designed to educate consumers on the energy and monetary benefits realized by trading in their old appliances for new Frigidaire ENERGY STAR qualified appliances. Most recently, Frigidaire announced “Paid to Upgrade”, which was created to add additional value to consumers on top of the $300m State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program.
“As a proud ENERGY STAR partner, Frigidaire is committed to helping our customers save money and increase energy efficiency in their homes,” said Marty O’Gorman, General Manager for Frigidaire. “That’s why our new line of appliances offers a range of energy efficiencies along with innovative features that minimize energy and water consumption. We’re proud to offer appliances that save consumers considerable amounts of energy and water – from washers that use up to 82% less energy and 60% less water to dishwashers that use at least 41% less energy and 40% less water than was used just 10 years ago.”
Frigidaire recently launched 250 new kitchen and laundry appliances designed with easy-to-use time-, money- and energy-saving features. The new collections are ENERGY STAR qualified, where applicable, and offer a wide variety of stylish appliances that are from 10% to 80% more energy-efficient than non-ENERGY STAR qualified appliances.
Frigidaire has always been committed to helping consumers save money and energy. In fact, consumers who are interested in swapping out old appliances can calculate their potential cash and energy savings at www.Frigidare.com/ecosavings.
The entire new Frigidaire appliance line is available nationwide at Best Buy, Lowe’s, Sears and select independent appliance dealers.
