Energy Star Lighting

Energy Star Lighting

Electric lighting consumes up to 25% of the average home energy budget. The electricity used over the lifetime of a single incandescent bulb costs 5 to 10 times the original purchase price of a cfl bulb or compact fluorescent light bulb.

CFL Bulbs – Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs are simply miniature versions of full-sized fluorescence. They screw into standard lamp sockets, and give off light that looks just like the common incandescent bulbs – not like the fluorescent lighting we associate with factories and schools.

CFL bulb styles – Spiral Lamps Continuous tube in a spiral shape which has similar outside shape and light casting qualities to a standard incandescent light bulbs. Spiral CFL bulbs are made in several sizes to fit most common fixtures.

CFLs are four times more efficient and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent light bulbs. A 22 watt CFL has about the same light output as a 100 watt incandescent. Compact fluorescent light bulbs use 50 – 80% less energy than incandescent light bulbs.

 

Although initially more expensive, you save money in the long run because CFLs use 1/3 the energy and last up to 10 times as long as incandescent. At 8 cents per kWh, a single 18 watt CFL used in place of a 75 watt incandescent will save about $45. This does not even take into consideration of the energy savings you will get on cooling costs as the CFL puts off less than 1/6 the heat of an incandescent.

Pollution Reduction By replacing a single incandescent bulb with a CFL you can keep a half-ton of CO2 out of the atmosphere over the life of the bulb. If everyone in the U.S. used energy-efficient lighting, we could retire 90 average size power plants.

High-Quality Light

Newer Compact fluorescent light bulbs give a warm, inviting light instead of the “cool white” light of older fluorescence. They use rare earth phosphors for excellent color and warmth. New electronically ballasted CFLs don’t flicker or hum.

Versatility Compact fluorescent light bulbs can be applied nearly anywhere that incandescent lights are used. 3-way CFLs are also now available for lamps with 3-way settings.

To all customers

We have spent over 9 years now working hard on ways to control costs and not have to increase pricing on our paint products and in many cases we were considering it, but luckily never had to. But unfortunately, just like the entire coatings and other industries we are running out of ways and running way low on everything to make our safe and natural products. A swell, all of our raw material costs have been going up and up since January of 2021, we have seen increase of 30 to 100 percent and no end in sight. As well when you order the raw materials you are getting long lead times as everything seems to be on back order or out of stock now. We do have more raw materials on order, but again our suppliers are either out of stock or have very limited on hand stock and everything seems to be on back order.
All of this has also pushed us to the point we have no other alternatives than to increase the prices or close our doors.
With all this said, we have also been hit with high demands on our products which have depleted our entire stock. So there could be slight delays from time to time until all this clears up and gets back to normal. We wish we had better news, but everyone is having the same issues right now and many were increasing their prices months ago. We have waited as long as possible. Please note that we may have to increase the prices even more if this all continues. But if an order is placed, your order pricing will be honored which is more than I can say about our raw materials suppliers have been.
Last, any orders placed during a waiting period for the raw materials, will be filled in the order they were submitted/received. We will also let everyone who has ordered any product know if there is any status changes as well as when we will be able to go into production.

Sincerely
The entire staff of Go Green World Products LLC
