What is an Energy star rated bulb and why should I use them?


Energy Star Bulb

In follow up to my last blog regarding the phasing out of T12 fluorescent lamps, I wanted to share some brief information and a helpful link about the “new wave” of energy efficient lighting sources.

Energy Star rated lighting products are products which meet strict guidelines from the US Environmental Protection Agency, claiming energy consumption reduction by about 75 % over standard incandescent bulbs, six times longer lamp life, and reduced heat output.

Here is the link to the Energy Star web page, which includes helpful charts, buying guidance, specs and FAQ’s.
