Your home is your sanctuary and the way each room is lit has a profound impact on its appearance. Each home in the U.S. has about 50 light sockets, some of which use decorative or ‘specialty’ bulb shapes such as globes, candles, or reflectors. The best way to fill each one of these sockets is with an energy efficient, ENERGY STAR certified specialty bulb. Decorative or specialty light bulbs that earn the ENERGY STAR label retain the light appearance you expect, last at least 15 times longer than incandescents, and save about $55 in electricity costs over their lifetime.
