Efficient lighting. Responsible recycling.

Light up your home for less

You already know that CFLs and LEDs are more energy efficient than traditional bulbs. But did you know we offer bulb discounts, making them more affordable? We've partnered with a variety of retailers to help light up your home with efficiency, without breaking your budget. For a limited time, you can get CFLs for as little as $1 per bulb and save up to $5 on select models of LEDs.

LEDs vs. CFLs
CFLs use up 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs and last 10 times longer, saving you up to $50 over the life of the bulb. Place CFLs in the lights you use the most to optimize energy savings. CFLs do contain mercury and need to be properly recycled.

LEDs are the most energy efficient bulb on the market. They use up to 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs and last up to 25 years.

And LEDs are safer because they operate at much lower temperatures, do not contain mercury, and do not produce any ultraviolet (UV) light. They give you light instantly at full brightness, with no warm-up time and emit a much higher percentage of light in a desired direction. Most LEDs are fully dimmable too.

Wattage

Because CFLs and LEDs use less energy, you will want to choose a wattage that's about one-fourth of what you usually buy for an incandescent bulb. Always refer to the "lumen" or "lighting" output on the product package as your guide.

For example, if a 60-watt incandescent bulb puts out 800 lumens, to get the same amount of light, look for a CFL or LED replacement that emits 800 lumens or more to get the same light.

Energy Saving Tip

Make sure to regularly change the air filters on your HVAC system (at least once per month). Old, clogged filters are far less efficient than new ones.
