With a selection of efficient appliances and an extensive rebates program, shoppers can count on The Home Depot for immediate and long-term savings on utility bills.

Water-Efficient Washers and Dryers

Older laundry machines can waste water and electricity. New models like this washer and dryer from Electrolux can make an immediate impact on your monthly bill, reducing water use by nearly 33 percent and saving $35 a year on energy.

A Sleek, Smart Refrigerator

When it comes to savings, every bit counts. This LG smart fridge has a window with three panes of tempered glass, which means you can see what’s inside without opening the door and wasting cold air—saving precious pennies.

Don’t stop there. The Home Depot’s Eco Options program can help you identify products with a lower environmental impact—helping you save energy and money.  “Our ultimate goal is to ‘green’ our entire assortment instead of selling green products,” says Home Depot Manager of Environmental Sustainability, Mark Schleier. “That’s a commitment our merchants and merchandising teams are making to make Home Depot a more sustainable company.”

The Home Depot’s rebates program can also offer immediate savings. “Through the rebate finder tool, customers can type in the Home Depot product number and find a form to see if they are eligible for a rebate in their area,” says Logan Murray, Analyst for Home Depot’s Utility Rebates.

There were more than 2.2 billion searches for rebates on Home Depot last year. That means big savings year round.
