SAVE MONEY & ENERGY WITH
COMPACT FLUORESCENT LIGHTS

Have you ever stopped to think about how a standard incandescent light bulb works? When a light is turned on, the electric current heats the light bulb filament thus causing it to glow. Only about 10% of the energy that is released takes the form of visible light. The rest of the energy emitted is heat. Based on this, it would seem to make more sense to use incandescent lighting to heat your home rather than illuminate it!

The energy efficient alternative to incandescent is compact fluorescent lighting. Compact fluorescent light bulbs operate in the same way as regular fluorescent lighting. CFLs are simply small fluorescent tubes bent into compact shapes. Because they are compact and available with standard screw-in bases, CFLs can easily fit in a wide variety of lamps and fixtures.

The benefits of using compact fluorescent light bulbs include:

You may be concerned about the quality of light that CFLs emit. Thanks to recent developments in technology, the harsh cool light that many of us associate with fluorescent lighting has been replaced with a warmer light that closely matches incandescent. Furthermore, there have been improvements in the color rendering of fluorescent lighting. This means that the colors of objects will appear the same whether they are placed under fluorescent lighting or incandescent lighting.
