Home appliances are among the most energy-efficient products available. Through a combination of innovation and federal energy efficiency standards, home appliance manufacturers have dramatically improved the efficiency gains of their products. Many of today’s models use far less energy than those of a decade ago. AHAM advocates for policies that allow home appliances to perform at a high level while using minimal energy. AHAM's advocacy also strives to ensure that consumers of all income levels are able to purchase the appliances they need.

AHAM is engaged in numerous ongoing efficiency standards and test procedure rulemakings that continue to drive the efficiency of home appliances.
