e nergy s tar labeled light bulbs
ENERGY STAR Labeled Light Bulbs
  • Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) offer the same bright, warm light as incandescent bulbs and
    • Use 75% less energy
    • Last 6 to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs † -- generally about 4 or 5 years!
    • Are perfect in hard-to-reach or high-use fixtures
    • Perform with advanced technology—no hum or flicker from the days of older fluorescent technology

† Based on a minimum CFL life of 6,000 hours versus a 1,000-hour life of an incandescent.

e nergy s tar labeled ceiling fans
ENERGY STAR Labeled Ceiling Fans
  • May offer energy-efficient lighting. Consumers can save two ways: by purchasing an ENERGY STAR qualified fan/light combination or by adding an ENERGY STAR labeled light kit to a qualified fan.
  • Are 40% more efficient when ENERGY STAR qualified lighting is selected over standard fan/light combinations.
  • Can reduce lighting energy consumption by 60 to 80% by choosing efficient lighting. This cool-to-the-touch lighting allows the fan to cool you, not the air around hot incandescent or halogen light bulbs.
  • Move air up to 20% more efficiently than conventional fan models due to more efficient motor and blade designs.

Saves Money & the Environment

ENERGY STAR qualified lighting meets the #1 concern of consumers – long life. ENERGY STAR qualified light bulbs last, on average, 4-5 years (compared to under a year for incandescent). This means less bulb changes for your customer!

ENERGY STAR lighting matches the warmth of incandescent bulbs, but produces much less heat and is cool to the touch. Incandescent bulbs convert only about 10% of the energy used into light; the rest is emitted as heat. Working under and living with ENERGY STAR lighting is not uncomfortably hot.

ENERGY STAR lighting uses up to 75% less energy which means your customers will have lower electricity bills, while protecting the environment.

3. Show Consumers Lumens vs. Watts

Light Output = LUMENS

Power Usage ($) = WATTS

Lighting efficiency is determined by the amount of useful lumens you get for each watt of electricity,

you want lumens not watts!

“The switch to CFLs made the product look better, increased our business with folks coming in all day long and staying longer, increased comfort level of the showroom for our staff, lowered our cooling costs by about 20%, reduced our electric bill by 30%, and we are not changing the bulbs all the time any more.“

-- Dale Tiffany, Inc.

  • Use energy-efficient bulbs in your store
    • Lower your cooling costs and electric bill
    • Change bulbs less frequently
    • Improve comfort for your customers and employees
