What is Energy Star? For years, the Energy Star logo meant you were getting the most energy efficient appliances available on the market.  This may no longer be the case! Is Title 24 Better?

What are Lumens and Kelvins? Lumens are a measurement of how much light is generated - or brightness - each lumen emits approximately the same amount of light as one candle. Kelvin represents the "color" (which is based on the temperature) of the light. Bioluz LEDs are manufactured so that our 2700K (2700 Kelvin) bulbs are nearly identical in color to incandescent bulbs. Our 3000K bulbs are designed to match halogen bulbs. We've found that bulbs which are 4-5000K generate a bluish tint on objects (like at a hospital or office building) and are not as comforting in a home....
