In July 2008, North Carolina enacted legislation establishing a "sales tax holiday" for certain Energy Star-certified products. Energy Star appliances sold between 12:01 a.m. on the first Friday of November and 11:59 p.m. on the following Sunday qualify for the sales tax exemption.

The exemption is generally available for the following products if they carry the Energy Star label:

  • Clothes washers
  • Freezers and refrigerators
  • Central air conditioners and room air conditioners
  • Air-source heat pumps
  • Ceiling fans
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Programmable thermostats

This exemption does not involve the sale of a product for use in a trade or business, or for rental appliances.
