              Choose all model types that may apply. Consider the possible lighting applications of the end-user when selecting an
              ENERGY STAR qualified CFL model type. Bare-spiral CFLs are most common and will fit most lighting applications.
              Bare-mini-spiral models are small enough to fit in most flush mounted ceiling fixtures and ceiling fans with light kits.
              Covered CFLs are better for specialty applications where the CFL is likely to be exposed. For instance, covered
              A-lines can be used in table lamps, hanging pendant lights, ceiling fans, or outdoor enclosed fixtures; covered globes
              are designed for use in bath bars or other decorative fixtures; covered reflectors are most commonly found in
              recessed can fixtures. Make sure to review the manufacturer’s information on the best application for the product you

              2. Lumen Output
              The best way to select an ENERGY STAR qualified CFL to replace
              an incandescent bulb is to compare the light emitted, or lumen           Incandescent to ENERGY STAR
              output, of the products. Comparing the wattage using a 3:1 or 4:1        Qualified CFL Equivalency Chart
              ratio does not provide the full range of ENERGY STAR qualified           Incandescent Equivalent Qualified CFL
              CFLs that can meet your light output needs. For example, if you want     Wattage      Lumen Output (lumens)
              to replace a 60-watt incandescent that has a light output of 800
              lumens you may find suitable CFLs with wattages that range from 11       40W             Minimum lumen output: 450
              to 20 watts. A good rule of thumb is to always choose the ENERGY
                                                                                       60W             Minimum lumen output: 800
              STAR qualified CFL with the light output you need and the lowest
              wattage.                                                                 75W             Minimum lumen output: 1100

              Use the Incandescent to ENERGY STAR Qualified CFL Equivalency            100W            Minimum lumen output: 1600
              Chart to select the proper minimum and maximum CFL lumen output          150W            Minimum lumen output: 2600
              to replace an incandescent bulb. NOTE: Limiting the range of lumen
              output will help refine the results received from suppliers.

              3. Lifetime

              4. Special Usage
              Only use this option when looking for an ENERGY STAR qualified CFL to fulfill a specific lighting application.
              Selecting a specific application will limit the model type, wattage and lumen output available.

              5. Color Correlated Temperature (CCT)
              Color Correlated Temperature is the perceived color of light. Many ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs have a color
              correlated temperature similar to soft white incandescent bulbs, 2700-3000K (Kelvin). ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs
              with a CCT above 3000K have a whiter or "cooler" light appearance, and a qualified CFL with a CCT outside
              2700-3000K must label the CCT on the product packaging. Selecting a specific CCT will limit the number of products
