Not All Incandescent Light Bulbs will be Banned Next Year; Bulbrite Introduces Halogen A19 Bulbs Compliant With New Laws
MOONACHIE, N.J., Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — As many consumers are beginning to suffer from “light bulb anxiety” and are confused about replacement options for their traditional incandescent bulbs, Bulbrite introduces their Eco-Friendly Halogen A19 lamp. Bulbrite is a leading manufacturer and supplier of innovative, energy-efficient light source solutions and the premier educational resource for lamping technology.
Bulbrite’s Eco-Friendly Halogen A19 complies with the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA), which takes effect January 1, 2012 and requires general service light bulbs to operate up to 30% more efficiently than current standards require. Consumers will gain the benefits of higher efficiency and superior lighting quality, giving them an alternative to CFLs (compact fluorescents) and LEDs (light emitting diodes).
The Halogen A19, a recent winner of the Platinum Award for Design Excellence (ADEX), is fully dimmable and can last up to 1,000 hours. In comparison to its incandescent replacements, Bulbrite’s Eco-Friendly Halogen A19 significantly reduces energy consumption without sacrificing light output, as shown below.
- 29-watt Halogen A19 equals 40-watt incandescent
- 43-watt Halogen A19 equals 60-watt incandescent
- 53-watt Halogen A19 equals 75-watt incandescent
- 72-watt Halogen A19 equals 100-watt incandescent
This unique lamp is available in four different wattages with both clear and soft white finishes. The most common uses include chandeliers, outdoor and security lights, ceiling pendants, recessed downlights, portable table and floor lamps, and wall sconces.
