Other Important Information
How Much Energy/Electricity Will I Save With a R40 23W CFL Spot Light?
The estimated savings is the product of the estimated number of kilowatt hours saved times the cost per kilowatt hour. Kilowatt hours saved are determined by taking the difference between the traditional incandescent bulb wattage and the watts used by the equivalent CFL, times the estimated number of hours of use, divided by 1,000. The average cost per kWh varies widely across the country from 7¢ in Missouri to almost 26¢ in Hawaii according to the Department of Energy (DoE). The average cost nationwide is about 11¢.
Savings for this bulb are calculated using a more conservative 10¢ per kWh:
(75W-23W) * 8,000 / 1,000 * $0.10 = $42
Chances are your savings will be greater. You can substitute your actual cost per kWh ($0.10 in the calculation above) from your electric bill or using information from the DoE. In addition, you can add in the cost of all of the incandescent bulbs you would buy over the life of this 8,000 hour CFL. This likely will increase your lifetime savings by $5-10.
Who Manufactures These Bulbs?
Westinghouse Lighting, a name you know and trust.
How much light does this bulb produce in watts and lumens?
The 23W CFL light bulb shines a soft white 1,250 lumens of light, equivalent to a traditional 75W bulb.
Is this product EnergyStar qualified?
No. This CFL was previously approved by Energy Star but does not meet the most recent standards.
Is this bulb dimmable?
No, this bulb is not designed for use with dimmer switches. Using the bulb on a dimmer may shorten the bulb's useful life.
Can this bulb be used with a timer?
The bulb can be used with a timer. But because many timers pass a small amount of electricity to bulbs even when off, a timer may shorten the bulb's useful life.
How can I recycle the bulb when it finally burns out?
It's easy! As you probably know, all CFLs should be recycled properly. Home Depot and Ikea stores accept unbroken bulbs for recycling. Otherwise you can find information on recycling at LampRecycle.org.
