Residential lighting consumes about 12% of a home’s energy use, more than the refrigerator, dishwasher and laundry combined.

ENERGY STAR® certified bulbs and light fixtures use about 70-90% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs, and last 10-25 times longer. They also produce about 70% less heat, so they’re safer to operate and can cut energy costs associated with home cooling.
