Incandescent Bulbs to Turn Off in 2014: Are You Ready?

Light Bulbs. They are really hot right now. Who would have thought?

As 40- and 60-watt incandescent light bulbs are set to disappear from store shelves in 2014 due to the incandescent bulb ban, the transition to more energy efficient forms of lighting is upon us and products abound. Unfortunately, it also opens up a whole new world of specification and compatibility issues.

"For the longest time we've been dealing with simple, 60-watt incandescent bulbs, but now we have to worry about color temperature, beam angle, and lumen output," says Wayne Ortner of Energy Squad in a recent article by HES Insider. "If you [put in] the wrong bulb, it may fit the lamp, but the results could end up being disastrous."

Featured Client: Town Hall Library

Town Hall Library in Merton modernized the lighting in their DVD catalog room to LED lamps. The existing 75W track lighting was replaced with 18W LED lamps, the chandelier lamps were upgraded from 40W LED bulbs to 4W LED lamps, and the 15W CFL bulbs were upgraded to 8W LED lamps. The new LED lighting will use an average of 81.7% less energy! This energy savings results in a payback (ROI) of under 1 year. The library will save over $9,300 over the life of the LED lights.

In addition, the library will receive over $120 from Focus on Energy in rebates for the 32 lamps that were upgraded to Logical Green Solutions' LED lamps. As a Focus on Energy Trade Ally, Logical Green Solutions assists clients with their rebate applications. 

The library staff will spend significantly less time replacing burned out bulbs, as the LED lamps last up to 17 times longer. Another benefit is that the library is improving their sustainability by reducing their environmental by 44,700 lbs. of CO2 over the life of the LED lights. This is the equivalent of removing 4 cars from the highway for one year.

The Town Hall Library is known for its friendly service and varied collection. It is a cozy, full service location with Internet-accessible computers and WiFi.

Town Hall Library has a wide-ranging selection of fiction and non-fiction books for all ages. It also features an extensive audio book section, an impressive collection of DVDs and BluRay discs and electronic and downloadable materials.
