Globe compact fluorescent light bulbs for decorative areas that have exposed bulbs from eLightBulbs

Traditional compact fluorescent light bulbs didn't have much of a decorative element to them when they first came out, making them undesirable in open fixtures.  Then manufacturers came out with a globe version which was much more decorative and could be used in an exposed fixture like a light bar.  It looked like other regular globe light bulbs so people could use them in places not thought of before for a typical compact fluorescent.  They have allowed people to get increased energy efficiency while maintaining look of certain areas like bathrooms or marquis type lighting.  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 globe compact fluorescent light bulb types which include the regular household base.

You can buy globe compact fluorescent light bulbs in almost any color you want including the 5000K full spectrum color light.  The full spectrum 5000K has special phosphors that give it a similar color to daylight or natural sunlight.  It provides light the way our eyes use it, giving better visual acuity and reducing problems like eyestrain or computer screen glare problems.  But fluorescents can come in many other colors as well and are identified by their Kelvin temperature. The term full spectrum is primarily used when referring to those lamps that fall into the white to blue/white color temperature range. Color temperature is measured by a term called Kelvin. One of the phosphor colors for Panasonic is the 2800 Kelvin, which would be a warm tone color, 5000 Kelvin would be a white color.  The Panasonic version are sometimes referred to as EFG15E28, EFG15E50, EFG20E28 and EFG20E50.  The first number in the code refers to the wattage and the second number pertains to the color temperature.  The G in the code denotes the shape which is a globe.

If you're trying to save energy in your bathrooms or decorative lighting situations. Globe compact fluorescent light bulbs are the perfect choice to replace higher wattage incandescent lamps and save energy.  Just look for areas where you might use incandescent light bulbs in an exposed fixture or in a recessed light.  You will find a great reduction in your electrical bill while still getting the amount of light that you want.  Be aware of electric utility rebates in your area which might reduce the initial cost for compact fluorescent light bulbs.  This happens more often in commercial lighting than it is for residential as they are a larger user of electricity during the day or high electrical demand times.  You can save as much as 75% in lighting energy costs while maintaining the globe shape that people like in so many lighting applications.
