Energy efficient lighting lasts longer and is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional incandescent lighting. The most common types of energy efficient light bulbs are LEDs and CFLs. Halogens are also a suitable replacement for traditional incandescent light bulbs.
Replace light bulbs and light fixtures in your home with ones that are energy efficient and ENERGY STAR® qualified. They are perfect for areas where a light is on for 30 minutes or more, such as the kitchen, family room, hallways, and bedrooms.
