Energy Star Lighting
Most regular torchiere floor lamps use halogen bulbs that burn at temperatures exceeding 1,200 degrees F, hot enough to fry an egg in 30 seconds! This is well above the combustion temperatures for paper, wood and fabric, which range from 350-500 degrees F. The Consumer Products Safety Commission has attributed at least 31 deaths, 114 injuries and at least 350 fires resulting in $2 million in property damage to these lamps.

But Energy Star labeled torchiere floor lamps use compact fluorescent bulbs that burn much cooler, last 5 times longer and use 80% less energy. For example, an Energy Star torchiere uses a 56 watt fluorescent bulb which give the same amount of light as a 300 watt halogen bulb.

Energy Star torchieres have full range or 3 way dimming, come in a variety of styles and have a two-year warranty. More information can be found at
Energy Ideas Clearinghouse.
