Five Neighbors Receive Energy Efficient Appliances for Energy Star Day
Energy-efficient appliances are essential in helping homeowners conserve energy and save money. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a house equipped with Energy Star certified appliances can save a homeowner $100 per year.
LG and Lowe’s donated a full kitchen suite of Energy Star appliances, including an electric or gas oven range with a hood, dishwasher, top-freezer refrigerator with a water filtration system, as well as a stackable washer and dryer laundry unit. The installation was transformative!
“These appliances are life changing for me. Before I had to unhook my oxygen to cook because the gas stove and dryer, now I don’t have to worry about any of that.”“The refrigerator has a water filter inside of it, the dryer has a light inside and the stove has an air fry feature. I never thought I needed those things but now I’m wondering how I used them before.” The installation is part of Building a Healthy Neighborhood, a national program that brings together volunteers, neighbors, community leaders and local organizations to revitalize neighborhoods with safe, affordable, accessible homes and thriving community spaces.
