Energy consumption, in kilowatt hours (KWh), shows the estimated annual electricity usage of the product.</p> <p>The star rating of an appliance is determined by its energy consumption and size, using the relevant Australian Standards for measuring energy consumption and minimum energy performance criteria. Appliances must meet these criteria before they can receive an Energy Rating Label.</p> <p>Many air conditioners for sale in Australia and New Zealand now display a <strong>Zoned Energy Rating Label</strong> (ZERL). The ZERL provides a seasonal efficiency rating for 3 distinct climate zones — hot, average, and cold. The label displays performance information to help consumers select a product that is suitable for their climate zone. Ratings are up to a maximum of 10 stars for both heating and cooling.</p> <p>The capacity output figures on an air conditioner label will let you know the amount of cooling and heating the model can produce.  Also included in the new labeling is a noise indicator, to show the volume in decibels of the internal and external units.</p> <p>Labels on ducted systems are voluntary, so not all products will have one.  </p> <p>There are 2 label styles:</p> <ul> <li>The normal 6-star label</li> <li>The 10-star label for appliances rated as 7 stars or higher</li> </ul> <p>Energy Rating Labels must be displayed on the following new appliances:</p> <ul> <li>Air conditioners (single phase, non-ducted)</li> <li>Washing machines</li> <li>Clothes dryers</li> <li>Dishwashers</li> <li>Televisions</li> <li>Fridges</li> <li>Freezers</li> <li>Computer monitors</li> </ul> <p>Energy Rating Labels may be displayed on the following new appliances (if the supplier chooses to participate in a voluntary labelling scheme):</p> <ul> <li>Swimming pool pumps</li> <li>3 phase air conditioners</li> </ul> <h2>Benefits</h2> <p>Energy-efficient appliances save money on energy bills as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions.</p> <p>The Energy Rating Label also provides an incentive for manufacturers to improve the performance of their appliances.</p> <ul> </ul> <h2>Next steps</h2> <p>More
