slide5

Why are light bulb options changing?

You can light your home for less money – and less energy

  • Traditional incandescent bulbs are very inefficient
  • Only 10% of energy is used for producing light
  • 90% of the energy is converted into heat
slide6

Why are light bulb options changing?

You can light your home for less money – and less energy

  • Options such as energy-saving incandescents, CFLs and LEDs are more efficient
  • CFLs and LEDs use 75% - 80% less energy than traditional incandescents

Energy-Saving (Halogen)

Why are light bulb options changing?

You can light your home for less money – and less energy

For example:

A 26-watt CFL produces as much light as a traditional 100-watt incandescent

Energy used: 26 Watts

Light output: ~1600 lumens

Energy used: 100 Watts

Light output: ~1600 lumens

Lumens measure how much light you are getting from a bulb. More lumens means it's a brighter light; fewer lumens means it's a dimmer light.

Initiatives to save energy

ENERGY INDEPENDENCE AND SECURITY ACT OF 2007

Passed by Congress and signed into law by

President George W. Bush

Supported by many U.S. lighting companies, which have already brought new, energy-efficient lighting products to the U.S. market

slide15

Why are light bulb options changing?

Initiatives to save energy

More energy-efficient light bulbs will:

  • Help us to save energy
  • Help us save money
  • Help protect the environment
slide17

Does EISA ban incandescent bulbs?

No, there is no ban on incandescent bulbs

New energy-saving incandescent bulbs that use halogen technology are already available that meet the EISA minimum efficiency standards.

slide19

When will EISA be implemented?

EISA will be phased in

100 W

40 W

75 W

60 W

01-01-2013

01-01-2014

01-01-2014

01-01-2012

slide20

When will EISA be implemented?

The following table provides the complete timeline

slide21

When will EISA be implemented?

New efficiency standards state the maximum wattage of the new, energy-saving (halogen) incandescent bulbs

slide23

How can I help customers choose the right bulb for their lighting needs?

A variety of energy-efficient options are available, including energy-saving (halogen) Incandescents, CFLs and LEDs

What, exactly, is an energy-saving (halogen) incandescent bulb?

  • Energy -saving (halogen) bulbs are simply a type of incandescent
  • They are available in the same shape as traditional incandescent bulbs
slide27

What, exactly, is an energy-saving (halogen) incandescent bulb?

Note that the packaging tells you that it is designed to be a replacement for the traditional 100-watt incandescent

slide28

What, exactly, is an energy-saving (halogen) incandescent bulb?

Clear

Frosted

They are also available in either clear or frosted

slide30

What LED bulbs are on the market today to replace traditional incandescent bulbs?

Today, there are 40-, 60- and 75-watt LEDs available to replace traditional incandescent bulbs. However, there is not yet an LED on the market to replace a traditional 100-watt incandescent.

12-Watt (60W)

LED Light Bulb

The highest lumen output LED bulbs on the market today are comparable to a 75-watt incandescent.

slide32

How will the new Lighting Facts labels help me make recommendations to my customer?

  • Beginning January 2012
  • All new medium screw base light bulbs will include the Federal Trade Commission’s consumer label

than comparable incandescents

Change bulbs once every 9 years

Change bulbs once each year

slide53

Can I use my dimmer switch with LEDs, CFLs and energy-saving (halogen) incandescents?

If a CFL is dimmable, it will be marked on the product packaging.

slide54

Can I use my dimmer switch with LEDs, CFLs and energy-saving (halogen) incandescents?

  • Review the packaging carefully
  • CFLs do not dim as much as LEDs, energy-saving (halogen) incandescents or traditional incandescents
slide56

Are any bulbs exempt from EISA?

Yes.

Twenty-two types of incandescent bulbs are exempt.

Decorative bulbs such as candelabra bulbs

3-Way Bulbs

Reflector bulbs

Appliance bulbs

Examples of exempt bulbs

slide58

Are CFLs safe to use?

Yes, CFLs are safe to use.

The EPA estimates that CFLs in the U.S. contain an average of only 4 milligrams or less of mercury.

slide59

Are CFLs safe to use?

For perspective, one old-fashioned mercury thermometer contains 125 times more mercury than a single CFL.

125 x the mercury than a single CFL

slide61

What happens if the CFL breaks?

The EPA provides cleanup guidance for CFL breakage to ensure minimal opportunity for human exposure to mercury

vapor.

For more information go to:

www.epa.gov/cfl/cflcleanup

slide62

What happens if the CFL breaks?

It is also important to know that no mercury is released when the light bulb is intact or in use.

slide64

Summary

Incandescent bulbs are not banned, they are simply going to be more efficient

slide65

Summary

You will be able to offer your customers a range

of better bulb choices in a variety of colors, bulb types and light levels, including energy-saving (halogen) incandescents, CFLs and LEDs
