Installing a CFL

Switch the old fashioned light bulbs in your home or business to ENERGY STAR® qualified compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs).

Right away you’ll use less energy, pay less for your electric bills and change your bulbs less often.

That’s because ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs use 75 percent less energy, last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs and can save you up to $70 in energy costs over the lifetime of one CFL bulb.

Change the five most used incandescent bulbs in your home or office and watch your savings grow up to $50 annually! From flood lights, three-way and dimmable to the standard spiral, ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs are available for most applications in a number of styles and sizes. They are cool to the touch, illuminate instantly and fit most fixtures.

Check out a variety of long-lasting, energy-saving CFL options at a store near you.

Tell your family, neighbors and co-workers how they can be the brightest bulbs on the block too. Learn more about ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs today.
