Now Available Free In-Home Try Light Kit Features 12 Commonly Used Household LED Bulbs Allowing Consumers To Upgrade Lighting In Their Residences, Live More Responsibly And Save Money On Electricity Bills Forever

ARMONK, NY — November 13, 2018 – Westchester resident Richard Hulme and former NHL New York Rangers goalie, Mike Richter, teamed up to help consumers make a difference in the world through a simple upgrade in the lighting in their home. Their start-up BFranklin makes it easy for consumers to convert their homes to LED lighting in less time that takes to fire up the Zamboni.

After 14 years as a goalie in the NHL with the New York Rangers, Mike Richter wanted more from his retirement and set out to earn a degree at Yale. After completing his studies, he turned his focus to energy conservation and worked with solar innovators where he recognized that so much could be done to become more energy efficient. Richter found out that 70% of homes in America were using primarily inefficient incandescent bulbs. Immediately, he understood that consumers could save real money by converting to LED, all the while reducing their carbon footprint. He set out to find a way to make this easy and realized it was as simple as changing a light bulb.

Hulme studied business at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh after a career in the retail food industry where he managed high touch, high-quality conscience guest who wanted exemplary experiential service. A master at helping people creatively solve their business problems, he worked as a consultant at top global companies like PriceWaterhouseCoopers and IBM where he successfully met the strategic needs of his clients.

Both Hulme and Richter are agents of change and wanted to find fun and simple ways to help save the planet; thus BFranklin Home was born. By merely visiting BFranklin Home consumers can order the FREE BFranklin In-Home LED Lighting Kit. The kit features twelve (12) universally used household LED bulbs that can be tested in the comfort of a consumer’s home during a free 30-day trial period. The cost for the kit is free, and assumes consumers will return it in the pre-paid box. If a consumer wants to keep the kit, though highly unlikely, they can do so for a low fee.

The BFranklin Try Light Kit serves primarily as a tool to help consumers learn what lighting they need in their homes so they can completely refresh and renew their lighting with the right lights. A detailed worksheet makes it easy to log the quantities, facilitating online ordering afterwards. Using the BFranklin kits quickly replaces confusing trips to the light bulb aisle at a home improvement store carrying old burned out bulbs. An average home takes about an hour or so to assess which is about the time it might take to visit a home improvement store.

Upgrading home lighting with LED light bulbs is one of the most cost and energy efficient ways to make a change to a home’s décor and ambience. LED bulbs have proven to be better for the planet because they use 10% of the electricity of an incandescent bulb, have a lifespan of 20 years, and don’t leach harmful toxins into landfills. Research shows that 80% of consumers are unhappy with the lighting in their homes because they have a mish-mash of bulbs in their homes that give off un-even, excessively bright or overly dim light, which makes a room feel unwelcoming and unpleasant. Studies indicate having the proper lighting can enhance moods and increase productivity.

“Using our extensive lighting experience BFranklin ( ) has created an innovative way to bring home the process of out-fitting your whole home with energy-efficient, money-saving beautiful lighting. Refreshing your lighting is easy with our in-home quick-start kit that comes with bulbs in a variety of shapes, sizes and color warmths,” said Richard Hulme, CEO BFranklin. “With one click, you will be on your way to lower electricity bills while also improving your quality of light and life.”

BFranklin offers bulbs in a variety of shapes, sizes, and lumens (brightness) — from standard-sized to candelabra-sized to floodlights bulbs — and all carry a money- back guarantee.

Using BFranklin Home’s Try Light Kits are stress-free, cost and energy-efficient and makes revamping home décor a breeze. Here are a few reasons why:

• The in-home trial is free and easy.

• The average homeowner can save between $300-500 on their yearly

electric bills. Your investment is usually returned within one year.

• Each LED bulb will last up to 20 years thus helping you create a smaller

carbon footprint. They’re also more environmentally-friendly because they

contain no mercury like Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) bulbs.

• LED bulbs are safer with kids at home because they emit less heat and stay

cool to the touch.

• This new generation of LED bulbs emits warm, pleasing light versus the

stark and harsh light of early LED bulbs.

• Use these bulbs with most existing dimmer systems.
