Find the Right Light with ENERGY STAR

Make your space one-of-a-kind: personalize your lighting with ENERGY STAR! Whether you’re looking to add vintage style bulbs to your living room or make your bedroom cozier, you can find an ENERGY STAR certified option to fit your needs. LED bulbs and fixtures that earn the ENERGY STAR label are independently certified to provide a consistent appearance, last 15 times longer, and use up to 90% less energy than standard options.

ENERGY STAR certified LED bulbs are available in a variety of shapes and sizes for any application—including recessed cans, track lighting, table lamps, and more. Do you have a bathroom vanity that uses ‘globe’ or ‘candle’-shaped bulbs? ENERGY STAR can help you fill them with the right energy-saving bulb to meet your needs. If your bedroom or den could benefit from dimmable lighting, look on the packaging of the ENERGY STAR certified options for information about dimming capability and compatibility. And best of all, the ENERGY STAR Choose a Light Guide can help you choose the right light appearance that fits your needs: soft and warm for your den, or crisp and white for your kitchen.
