With the help of the Hometown Energy Savers® program, you can receive an instant discount when you purchase energy-efficient lighting from participating retailers. Please note, some lighting products may not be available at all retailers at certain times throughout the year.
- Take inventory. Before you leave home, make a list of the bulbs you need. Consider measuring your fixtures, and note if you need “dimmable” or “3-way” feature bulbs.
- For a consistent look, consider using the same color temperature within a room.
- Look for the ENERGY STAR® label.
Making Sense of the Watts
Energy efficient bulbs use significantly less energy (measured in watts) to deliver the same amount of light (measured in lumens). To determine which ENERGY STAR-qualified light bulbs will provide the same amount of light as your standard bulbs, it’s best to focus on lumens instead of watts.
