Every Second Counts: GE’s Bright from the Start® CFL Light Bulb Meets Consumers’ Need for Instant Brightness and Energy-Efficient Lighting

When you flip the switch, you don’t want to wait for the compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulb to brighten up. GE Lighting’s award-winning Bright from the Start®, a hybrid halogen-CFL light bulb that provides instant brightness, is now available in a 100-watt replacement bulb for table or floor lamps, as well as globe lights commonly used for bathroom vanity lighting and recessed lighting in kitchen, living and dining rooms. They are perfect choices for residential lighting.

GE’s Bright from the Start® CFL
Ideal for a variety of high-use lighting applications like bathroom vanity lighting, GE’s Bright from the Start® CFL provides instant brightness—unlike other CFLs—and uses 75 percent less energy than standard incandescent bulbs.

Similarly, for Target NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver, Juan Pablo Montoya, every second counts on and off the race track. Juan, his wife, Connie, and their three kids put GE’s Bright from the Start to the test in their own home to see if it could keep up with their fast-paced lifestyle. “I love the energy savings that CFLs provide, but didn’t like the amount of time it took to warm-up for full brightness,” said Connie. “GE’s Bright from the Start bulbs are instantly bright, but use a lot less energy than traditional bulbs.”

GE engineers have designed this CFL light bulb so that when you flip the switch, GE’s Bright from the Start illuminates instantly thanks to a Brightness Booster™, a halogen capsule. After about a minute, the CFL reaches full brightness and takes over, providing warm-tone, energy-saving light. In fact, each 100-watt replacement Bright from the Start bulb will save consumers $39 over the life of the bulb, based on three hours of operation.

Whether in bathrooms, kitchens or dining rooms, these bulbs provide a similar soft, warm light like an incandescent. Great for high-use table lamps and fixtures where you want instant illumination and energy-efficient lighting, Bright from the Start CFL bulbs have the familiar shape of their incandescent counterparts – so you won’t notice any difference.

“We really like the flow of our home – especially when entertaining all of our family and friends – but we wanted to use energy-efficient lighting in the busy areas of our condo and create visual separation from our kitchen to the dining room,” continued Connie. “By using a mixture of GE’s Bright from the Start bulbs, we were able to have functional lighting in the kitchen, while creating a more inviting and relaxing environment in the dining room.”

GE’s Bright from the Start CFL light bulbs are available now.  For more information, please check Target and Bright from the Star.
