POSTED: 3:59 AM Oct 07 2013

Virginia's seventh sales-tax holiday on energy-efficient products begins Friday.
 
Residential consumers can save money by buying sales-tax exempt heat pumps, dishwashers, washing machines, insulation, toilets and other products during the sales-tax holiday, which runs through Oct. 14.
 
Products exempt from the sales tax must cost $2,500 or less. They also must be certified as being energy efficient with the Energy Star and WaterSense designations.
