No More Dim Bulbs: ENERGY STAR & Zombies

4 Flares 4 Flares ×

Post done in cooperation with ENERGY STAR.

Have you tried LED bulbs only to be disappointed in the dim or strangely tinted light they created? Apparently the latest greenwashing coming to a retailer near you is a cheap knockoff of an LED lightbulb that doesn’t meet ENERGY STAR standards.

We know LEDS save energy and money — potentially hundreds of dollars over time if you converted an entire house — compared to old, inefficient incandescent bulbs.  But you may also be wasting money if you don’t invest in LED bulbs with the ENERGY STAR seal. Manufactures have to earn that seal, not only showing they save energy and can last for years, but demonstrating they match the light distribution of the incandescent lightbulbs they’ll be replacing. ENERGY STAR is your seal of assurance that your new, energy efficient LED bulbs will work the way you need them to.

This newest education series is all in fun, featuring some pretty scary and wacky characters who are learning, like the average family, how to save with ENERGY STAR.  Here’s my favorite video:

    Thanks for the great information on choosing the right LED. I never realized what a difference it made to pick one that was ENERGY STAR certified. I appreciate the great content.
