More on Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs
Fluorescent technology has been around for many decades, but making it easy to use in your home and affordable as taken some time. Today, we have a lot of great options in Compact Fluorescent bulbs from a wide variety of manufacturers. The quality of light, energy efficiency, and flexibility has never been better. Compact Fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) are very popular, and are particularly beloved by a couple of important groups of people.

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs The first group of people that are very interested in using CFL light bulbs are those of us who deeply care about the world’s environment. What makes compact fluorescents a great option for the health of our planet? First of all, CFLs are long lasting light bulbs—much, much longer than normal bulbs. This means for every one bulb used, it replaces 8-10 standard bulbs that would end up in a landfill. And at the end of its life, a CFL bulb is fully recyclable and most cities, counties, and states make this fairly easy to do.

Another reason that CFLs are good for the environment is the amount of energy they use. Anyone who follows environmental issues knows that producing electricity can be a dirty business, and is responsible for a lot of pollution. Using energy efficient lighting can really reduce your carbon footprint and help keep those emissions from energy plants. Keep in mind that your normal light bulbs use 4 times as much electricity as CFLs do.

The second group of people who have taken great interest in compact fluorescent light bulbs is people who are trying to save money. I know, that’s a pretty big group! Let’s start with the facts: CFLs cost more than regular bulbs, but they give you benefits that end up saving you many, many times more money throughout the life of the bulb. First, count up the money you’ll spend buying 8 to 10 normal bulbs during the lifetime of one single CFL. Now that ends up equalizing the costs substantially, but the single biggest savings you will receive is actually in your electric bill. You will be able to save money each and every month by using a lot less energy. A typical 15 watt CFL, which replaces a 60 watt standard bulb, will end up saving you $25 or more over its lifetime.

In recent years, manufacturers have expanded the options in CFL bulbs. In addition to the versatile twist bulbs, you can now get reliable floods, globes, a-line, and chandelier style torpedo bulbs. They are also getting a lot smaller with the technology, so you can often get compact fluorescents into smaller spaces than you used to be able to do. Improvements in the electronics that run the bulbs have allowed a more reliable option for dimmable CFLs as well as faster start times.
