Go back to Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs
Twist Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Twist
This is the standard for compact fluorescent bulbs, and can be used anywhere. It’s best to use them, however, in enclosed fixtures, as the peculiar shape may not be appealing. They’re the least expensive and most versatile CFL option.
Globe Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Globe
This is a perfect choice for bathroom strip fixtures. You can also consider globes for larger open ceiling fixtures and certain types of track lighting. The size of these bulbs may limit the places they could be put to use.
Torpedo Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Torpedo
These are the best choice for energy saving light bulbs in your chandeliers and electric torches. They are designed to simulate the look and shape of the décor bulbs so commonly used. They come in standard and candelabra bases.
Pear / A-Line Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Pear / A-line
This style is meant to be used in an exposed fixture, such as an open faced ceiling fan light, where you would not want anyone to see the CFL. It looks like a normal light bulb and performs like a compact fluorescent bulb. Looks are the only major difference between this type and a twist CFL.
Straight Tube Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Straight Tube
The most popular type of straight tube are the pin-based versions that are often used in commercial fixtures. They were supposed to be easier and cheaper to replace than the screw-in based models, since much of the electronic components are found in the socket instead of the bulb.
Cold Cathode Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Cold Cathode (CCFL)
Offering longer life and the ability to be flashed or dimmed, the cold cathode is another type of fluorescent technology. Cold cathode fluorescent lamps uses the same technology that neon lamps use and can produce more lumens per watt than a normal CFL. One significant drawback of a CCFL's is the limited amount of wattage currently available.
