- Overall Efficiency
Since EnergyStar doesn't certify residential range efficiency, it's up to us to give users an inkling of the range's energy use. Efficiency isn't always a huge question for ranges, as a gas rangetop is oven less efficient, but the benefits of gas cannot be measured well for chefs who need the precision.
Anyway, we do check to see that the range uses the amount of energy the manufacturer says, and then compare it to the performance scores. Our watt verification test verified that the Electrolux EI30EF55GS uses the amount of power it says it does, except for the oven, where it used 500 more watts than the 3000 it was supposed to. That notwithstanding, the 8762 watts of the rangetop and 7490 of the oven and broiler elements is not bad for the performance it gave—especially that broiler's.
