Incandescent Light Bulb
Between 2012 and 2014, standard 40- and 100-watt incandescent light bulbs must use 30% less energy to meet minimum efficient standards. What does it all mean? You are not required to throw out your existing bulbs. Manufacturers simply can't manufacture certain bulbs as time goes on. There is a range of specialty incandescent bulbs that are exceptions, including 3-ways, reflectors, appliance bulbs and some decorative options. Moving forward, you'll choose from better technology like energy-efficient soft white, CFL and LED options.
