Make the switch to ENERGY STAR LEDs today. LED light bulbs are energy efficient, protect the environment and last up to 50 times as long as an incandescent bulb.
CFU offers rebates of up to 50% off the price of LED bulbs. For rebate details, visit cfu.net/save-energy.
Once you have made the decision to switch to LEDs, it can be a bit overwhelming to know which one to pick. After all, there are a lot of choices out there.
Aren’t all LEDs the same?
The short answer is "no." But, luckily, you don’t have to become a lighting expert to pick a good LED, you just need to know one thing: Look for the ENERGY STAR label.
What does an ENERGY STAR label mean?
When you see an ENERGY STAR label on a bulb package, you can be confident the bulb you’re buying has met the highest standards for quality. ENERGY STAR standards include six different requirements related to color quality, maintenance and consistency.
For example, bulbs must deliver that same light quality for at least 35,000 hours—which is the equivalent of 12 years of use for eight hours a day.
Peace of Mind
ENERGY STAR bulbs have also met the industry’s highest standards for performance and longevity, which include:
- Rigorous testing by independent third parties.
- Guaranteed to meet a minimum three-year warranty.
- Extensive stress testing—Every ENERGY STAR bulb is tested to meet real-world operating environments.
