Energy efficient light bulbs for saving money and the environment. Sylvania, TCP, Westinghouse and other brands for your lighting needs.

Since the invention of energy efficient light bulbs, users have been saving energy with the most efficient small light source available.  Compact fluorescent are the smaller fluorescents you see used in almost any type of light fixture that used to use an incandescent light bulb. When it comes to lighting up a home, office or garage, compact fluorescent bulbs tend to be the ones chosen more often than other types of bulbs. They are chosen most often because of the great light output and good color along with energy efficiency as well. When compared to incandescent lighting, these are longer lasting, using much less energy making them a perfect choice for almost any type of lighting. There are several kinds of energy efficient light bulbs which include the regular household base, some that are plug-in types and some short linear bulbs.

As with all fluorescent bulbs, they rely on ballasts inside of the fixtures or units to make them work. The ballast is important because it is specific for each type of lamp.  You can't change from one type of fluorescent to another without changing the ballast in most cases.  On a rare occasion there may be a ballast that is made for several different types such as in the case of some commercial plug-in Sylvania Dulux lamps. Most of the time though the ballast in the lamp are matched electrically and so it's good to make sure the ballast you have is the right one for the lamp you choose. Many of you are probably familiar with the screw base that you would use a regular household light socket.  On these, the ballast is an integral part of the lamp itself.  Usually they are a one-piece unit and when you're done with it, you throw it away.  This is good for home users because you don't have to determine what has gone bad when it finally does get to the end of its life.  You simply replace it with a complete new bulb that you have.

You can get these in almost any color you want including the more desirable full spectrum light.  The full spectrum has special phosphors that give it a similar color to daylight or natural sunshine.  It produces light the way our eyes naturally use it, giving better visual acuity and reducing problems like eyestrain.  You'll find a great variety of these for your home in the regular household base, so you don't have to change out fixtures or table lamps, simply screw it in.  It makes becoming more energy efficient easier than ever.  It's no longer difficult to fit the light fixtures you have because we have one of the widest selections of these on the market today.  We don't just carry one brand, but several so we can give you the highest level of service with the right light bulb product you need.  Obviously, compact fluorescent bulbs are the perfect choice to replace higher wattage incandescent lamps and save energy.  You can do this in your home as well.  Just look for areas where you might use incandescent light bulbs and find the right replacement on our web site.  You will find a great reduction in your electrical bill while still getting the amount of light that you want.  Keep an eye out for electric utility rebates in your area which might be available for energy efficient light bulbs.  This is more true in commercial lighting than it is for residential as they are a larger user of electricity during the day or high demand times.

Remember that there are many types of compact fluorescent light bulbs, we describe some of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here.  Keep in mind that we also stock all the larger or linear types of fluorescent lamps used in commercial lighting.  Whatever type you choose or have, you will be saving energy while getting the most light you can for your money.  We have a large inventory of fluorescent bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying the bulb you have, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
