• Light Bulbs

    ENERGY STAR® qualified light bulbs, including CFLs and LEDs, use significantly less power than conventional ones. They not only can help you save money on your utility bills but also help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Residential lighting consumes about 12 percent 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.

CFL & LED vs. Incandescent

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) consume up to 75% less energy and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Operating at a lower temperature allows CFLs to provide light much more efficiently than traditional bulbs. You'll also save with LEDs.
