Bulb Education

Every light fixture needs a bulb, but as a customer, knowing which type of bulb to choose can be challenging. There’s CFL, LED, and incandescents, and most homeowner’s don’t know the difference between them all.

Luckily for consumers, every Lighting Facts label is required (by the FTC) to list the brightness, estimated yearly energy cost, life, light appearance and energy. This information is very valuable for customers to have when looking for the right bulb for their fixture. Each category contains information about how much light is given off, what color light, and energy usage.  A great article about these great changes and labeling facts can be found here.
