ENERGY STAR® Qualified Light Fixtures
Topping the list of “must have’s” this spring are those attractive light fixtures that have earned the ENERGY STAR rating – a distinction that goes to fixtures offering superior quality and the highest level of electricity efficiency available in the marketplace today.
Pretty Packs a Powerful Punch
Now available in all shapes and sizes, you can choose from an ever-growing selection of ENERGY STAR qualified fixtures for every room in your home, including portable ones such as table, desk and floor lamps. Check out the selection of hard-wired options for your porch, dining room, kitchen ceiling and under-cabinet, hallway ceiling and wall, bathroom and even ceiling fans. If you’re thinking about purchasing a ceiling fan with a light fixture, make sure it’s ENERGY STAR qualified. Visit your favourite home centre, lighting showroom or specialty retailer to see what’s in store.
An ENERGY STAR qualified fixture:
- Uses just 25% of the electricity of standard light fixtures
- Saves electricity and money on bills and bulb replacements since the bulbs last at least 10,000 hours or about 7 years of regular use –an excellent choice for hard to reach fixtures
- Has a 2-year warranty; double the industry standard
- Offers features such as dimming on some indoor models and automatic daylight shut-off and motion sensor on some outdoor models
ENERGY STAR qualified lighting fixtures are bright and warm but use about 75% less energy than standard lighting, produces 75% less heat and lasts up to 10 times longer.
