A survey recently conducted for Lutron Electronics found that very few Americans are aware of the 40- and 60-watt incandescent bulb ban that just went into effect, let alone their lighting options going into 2014.

According to the survey, which polled 1,000 U.S. adults in November, fewer than one in three are aware that manufacturers are no longer allowed to produce the bulbs.

Additionally, one in 10 adults is familiar with lighting alternatives such as LEDs and CFLs.
