At A Glance

This Alert Affects
Consumers who purchased certain appliances carrying the "Energy Star" efficiency rating.
Damages
If these manufacturers sold their appliances under the Energy Star label without meeting the requirements of the program, consumers will have paid a higher up-front price for a standard model without receiving any of the promised savings in their utility bills. Consumers may have legal recourse to seek compensation for these economic losses through an Energy Star class action lawsuit.
Company(ies)
Nigel B. Design, Inc., Thermo Products LLC, Equator Appliances, Perlick, ASKO, Electrolux, Frigidaire, LG Electronics, Samsung, Sears/Kenmore, KitchenAid, Summit Appliances, Friedrich, Midea USA Inc., National HVAC
Additional Details
Energy Star appliances are typically required to use 10% to 35% less energy than standard models. They are sold at a higher premium, based on the promise of reduced energy and water bills which will eventually generate enough savings to compensate the consumer for paying a higher up-front price for their appliance.
