Lighting choices are changing between 2012 and 2014 in favor of options that use less energy. There are many misconceptions and here are the facts to help you understand.
- 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.
The phase out schedule is as follows:
- 100 watt - 2012
- 75 watt - 2013
- 40 and 60 watt - 2014
We will continue to stock these bulbs as long as we can keep inventory. In addition to the CFL's we already stock, we'll have various options to make your home energy efficient.
