    SPRINGFIELD, MA September 2014 - - As you write specs on new and replacement projects, fluorescents are available in a range of shapes and styles. The savings is significant. In bulb life alone, a 60-watt incandescent lasts about 1,000 hours. A 15-watt CFL, which is of equal brightness, lasts 10,000 hours. Energy heavy to energy light.

    BULB SMARTS EXPLAINED
    with thanks to New York magazine: "Nothing but Green Lights," by Jenni Avins, February 13
    "New energy-efficiency laws have led to scores of new lightbulbs . . . Industry-wide, bulbs are now being labeled in lumens. The brightness we expect from a 100-watt bulb, 1,600 lumens, can now be achieved with as few as 23 watts."

    "Classic Incandescents: short life, many won't meet new lumens-per-watt standards. Cost: 60-watts for less than a dollar. Between replacing and energy cost, most expensive.

    "Halogen Incandescents: last two to three times as long as classics, burn brighter, nowhere as green as CFLs. Cost: slightly more than classic.

    "CFL: compact fluorescents last ten times as long as classics and use 1/4 the energy. They contain mercury so recycle them at Home Depot. They're warmer than they used to be and don't flicker. Cost: several dollars, very efficient, long life.

    "LED: Light-emitting diodes are found in televisions, watches and iPhones too. They last 25 times longer than classic bulbs. They're highly efficient and will cut bills by 80%. They're bright and best for hard-to-reach fixtures." Energy efficient lighting by the numbers
