**Energy Star is a guarantee for better efficiency.**
Lighting is responsible for 20% of the power bill in an average U.S. home, so the potential for savings is high. Compact fluorescent lamps, LEDs and Energy Star fixtures are much more efficient than incandescent bulbs. Lighting meeting Energy Star standards shows good color rendition, low noise, and minimal flickering as they start up. Energy Star rated light fixtures generate about 75% less heat than standard incandescent lamps, and they come with a two-year warranty instead of the usual one, according to Energy Star.
