While more than half of American homeowners (57%) ranked energy efficiency as one of their top two considerations, safety was not top of mind, said a UL survey. In fact, the majority of respondents admitted they don’t always look for a third-party safety certification, such as the UL Mark, on new appliances. Products that bear the UL Mark have been tested to UL’s rigorous safety standards and found to be free of foreseeable safety hazards.

To help consumers learn more about the State Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program and understand appliance safety, UL launched www.ul.com/appliancesafety. Online content will be updated regularly throughout the duration of the current state rebate programs and beyond. Consumers can find out when their state’s program starts and ends, what products qualify for the rebate program and how much money they will receive if they upgrade one or more of their current appliances. UL also explains how product features, brands and style considerations can still be factored in to safe appliance purchases.
