Buying a light bulb used to be a no-brainer. Now it’s a brain teaser — the transition to more energy-efficient lighting means choosing from a dazzling array of products. There are many options, many symbols, and trade vernacular that can be hard to decipher (LED, CFL, halogen, lumens, Kelvin, CRI), not to mention all of the various brands.
The Rethink Energy Program in partnership with Arlington Public Library is making it easier for Arlingtonians to switch to LED bulbs.
Now, with your Arlington County Library card you can borrow a case of various LED bulbs to test at home to find the ones that work best for you. The box includes 10 different lights. All of the bulbs in the box are dimmable.
- Standard bulbs of different brightness levels and colors
- Track lighting or recessed can fixture bulbs
- Chandelier bulbs (small and regular base)
- Outdoor flood light bulb
- Bathroom vanity bulb
- Three-Way bulb
- Night light
