Time For New Appliances? Think Energy Star!

This time of year, many people around Ottawa begin to think about purchasing new appliances, especially refrigerators. Spring is a good time to clean out and trade up! And even if you haven’t yet thought about doing it, maybe you should. Did you know that replacing your current appliances with those newer models that are certified as being ‘ENERGY STAR’ can add up to big savings throughout the year, helping to offset the cost of making the purchase?

In fact, the Canadian Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE) reports that ENERGY STAR appliances only receive that certification when they are 10 to 50 percent more energy efficient than comparable products that meet the minimum standards. With that kind of energy savings, it may be enough of an incentive to prompt people to upgrade to a newer model.  Besides, there are some rebates and incentive programs offered by the OEE, in an effort to encourage additional people to upgrade to more energy efficient appliances.

But what will you do with your used appliances? That need not be a headache anymore! Simply contact us at Capital Junk. We serve the entire Ottawa area by handling all junk and old-appliance removal. We will come out to your home or business to pick up the old appliances whenever it is convenient for you. And you don’t have to worry about where that appliance goes once it is in our hands. We have made it our mission to see that appliances in working condition are reused, and that those that no longer work are properly dealt with and recycled.

This may be the ideal time to clean up and clean out, especially when there are deals for those who purchase more eco-friendly appliances. But keep us in mind because, when you have a new appliance delivered, you will need to have your old one removed. And we’ll happily take it away and properly dispose of  it for you!
