Energy Star lighting

Posted on May 19, 2015 by Ed L | 0 comments
If every home in American completely replaced the five light fixtures they use most with ENERGY STAR qualified models, we would collectively prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of nearly 10 million cars.

Energy Star lighting

ENERGY STAR qualified lighting provides bright, warm light but uses about 75% less energy than standard lighting, produce 75% less heat, and lasts up to 10 times longer. That's not a coincidence considering most of the energy used by incandescent bulbs is wasted on heat.

Changing the world starts with simple actions. When you replace light bulbs or entire light fixtures in your home with ones that have earned the government's ENERGY STAR, you help preserve energy resources while saving money and time buying and changing lights in your home.

To save the most energy and money, replace your highest used fixtures or the light bulbs in them with energy-efficient models. The five highest use fixtures in a home are typically the kitchen ceiling lights, the living or family room table and floor lamps, and outdoor porch or post lamp.

The smallest things can add up to a real difference. We encourage you to change out the light fixtures or bulbs at home that you use most with ENERGY STAR qualified models.

FACT: The energy used in the average home can be responsible for more than twice the greenhouse gas emissions of the average car. When you use less energy at home, you reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

Energy efficient lighting

In a world where energy prices are going up and shortages abound, energy efficient lighting makes more sense than ever. Energy Star approved lamps produce 75 percent less heat than traditional bulbs. They also use 75 percent less energy and can last up to 10 times longer than conventional light sources.

Energy Star lighting is not plain, either! Choose from a large selection of energy efficient styles and colors designed to complement any room decor. Whether you choose an energy efficient table lamp or a practical outdoor lighting fixture, LampsUSA has everything you need including energy efficient replacement lamps and bulbs.

Make your home or office area lighting energy efficient by choosing lamps and fixtures that carry the Energy Star label. You'll be doing your part to make your living or work space that much better and help save the environment at the same time.

Buyer's Guides - Restoration Style Tips
Restoration Style was derived from Charles II after he was restored to the throne of England in 1660. During this period a big richness was noted in English design, architecture and art. Upon his return from the Netherlands and France he and his followers brought with them the latest European styles. 

Take a trip back to 1920's Venice with delicate milk glass sconces in your powder room, or the regal elegance of an embellished Victorian crystal chandelier in your staircase or foyer.

Consider the Use

Reading lamps need a wider shade to provide plenty of light. 

Consider the Room - What is the color and style of your room? Will the lamp have a starring role or compliment its surroundings?

Consider the Bulb
Be sure you have 2-3 inch separation from bulb to shade, especially for higher wattage bulbs. Be sure the top opening is wide enough to vent the heat. Compact Fluorescent bulbs are great for most lamps because they burn cooler, but you may need larger harp since CFL's are taller than standard light bulbs.
