Compact fluorescent flood lights

Compact fluorescent flood lights

Compact fluorescent flood lights are an excellent replacement for old inefficient incandescent floods. Less energy, less heat, and the same light output with more color temperatures available make it an easy choice.

Compact fluorescent flood lights

Compact fluorescent flood lights are the best option for homes in need of wide-area lighting.  For those who need or prefer their rooms or yards to be extremely well lighted, it is easy to find the right bulb when browsing CFL floods.  "Flood" is certainly the right word, because these types of bulbs lay down torrents of light; great sheets of bright light from which nothing can escape illumination.

Incandescent flood lights worked well while there was no other technology, but now that there are more choices the downsides of old inefficient bulbs become clear.  They generate vast amounts of heat, and while there are some uses (heat lamps) for such superfluous heat, it was mostly a nuisance.  When the bulbs are used inside, they cause increased need for air conditioning, which is yet another extra cost that is avoided by compact fluorescent flood lights.
 
It's a good thing lighting engineers and technicians were able to come up with these compact fluorescent equivalents.  Using CFL flood lights reduces energy consumption twofold; the bulbs themselves require far less energy, and then because they run so much cooler than incandescent bulbs there is no extra air conditioning required from their operation.  Regardless of how long a compact fluorescent light bulb is on, it's not going to burn anything.  They get hot, but never so hot that you can't touch them.
 
Compact fluorescent flood lights provide excellent light coverage whether they're inside or outside.  Switching to CFL floods from incandescent is a really good decision.  The next time you need to replace your flood lights, consider compact fluorescent flood lights to replace them.  You can tailor the light to your needs by getting the right color temperature, in addition to all the other benefits.  This is one easy way to make your house or business greener!
