Whirlpool Canada Honoured With 2013 ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Award

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Whirlpool Canada today was awarded the 2013 ENERGY STAR® Sustained Excellence Award by Natural Resources Canada (NRCAN). The award recognizes the company's continued and ongoing leadership when it comes to offering consumers energy and water efficiency through its leading home appliance brands.


The NRCAN Sustained Excellence Award evaluates multiple product lines when determining the winner – making it a very comprehensive honour. This is Whirlpool Canada's tenth ENERGY STAR award. Whirlpool has been honoured with 26 ENERGY STAR awards overall in North America, more than any other appliance manufacturer.

"The Sustained Excellence Award shows a deep and ongoing commitment to the ENERGY STAR program in Canada that we're proud of," said Gary Power, vice president and general manager, Whirlpool Canada. "Our focus to provide the best appliances to our customers goes hand in hand with ENERGY STAR qualified products; our partnership with the ENERGY STAR program in Canada is paramount to our business."

As the market leader in efficiency, Whirlpool has a strong history of making energy and water consumption a priority. Features in its washing machines and dryers highlight innovations when it comes to water and energy efficient products. For example, all front load models now include new efficiency features such as the Eco Boost option where the dryer uses lower water temperatures with higher tumbling action to dry clothes, Eco Monitor which provides visuals of how efficient any given washing cycle is and Adaptive Clean that ensures the correct water – every time without overuse.

There was a strong emphasis on kitchen appliances as well for the Sustained Excellence Award where refrigeration also was highlighted, as all Whirlpool brand models introduced in 2013 were ENERGY STAR Qualified. In addition, energy efficient dishwashers now include the industry-exclusive Eco Dry option – the most efficient drying option on Whirlpool brand dishwashers. With a shorter heating time, this feature uses 70 per cent less energy compared to using the Heated Dry option.

Product launches and other innovations from the past year include:
