3 Energy Efficient Alternatives – It’s Your Choice

Due to the new energy efficient standards, some of the bulbs you currently use in your home will no longer be available.

Today, you have 3 choices of energy efficient light bulbs: halogen, compact fluorescent (CFL) or light emitting diode (LED).

Each option allows you to enjoy the benefits of more efficient lighting without sacrificing the light quality you have come to expect from a Bulbrite product.

Find the right alternative for you by first looking at the benefits of each energy efficient option:

Another helpful tip when comparing light sources is to check for BRIGHTNESS!

An easy way to do this is to check the “Lighting Facts Label” on bulb packaging which lists “Lumens”.

“Lumens” is the measure of how bright a light source is and to pick an alternative with the right amount of light, you’ll need to know how many lumens your replacement requires.

Use the chart below to identify your required lumen rating and then check packaging for bulbs with a similar brightness.

Incandescent bulb Brightness
40 watt 460 lumens
60 watt 800 lumens
75 watt 1100 lumens
100 watt 1600 lumens
