What does an energy label indicate?

When you purchase a lamp, you will notice that the packaging comes with an energy label. However, what does an energy label really mean?

Every lamp and bulb such as halogens, LEDs and fluorescents just to name a few must all be provided with an energy label as this indicates how energy efficient a lamp is.

What does the label look like?

When you receive a lamp, the package will have a label that will show the suppliers information such as the name and model of the lamp. Below that you will see enerygy label class in which the lamp falls under. If the lamp has an energy label of A ++, A + or A you are using an energy efficient lamp, underneath it you will see the energy consumption of the lamp in KWh per 1000 hours. LED lamps usually fall into class A and above as they are the most energy efficient light. Halogen lamps usually fall into ebergy class C or D while incandescent lamps fall into E or F. Recent years there's been a reduction in the making of energy class E and F lamps and they will be discontinued in the market as these lights and lamps will no longer be produced.
