Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs, Do I Need Them?

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz about compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL’s). They are more expensive but do they really save energy? If so, how much?

While there are different types of CFL’s, the ones that are ENERGY STAR certified are the ones that can save the most energy. If every American home replaced one light bulb with an ENERGY STAR certified light bulb, that would save enough energy to light three million homes for a year. On top of that, it would save about six-hundred million in energy costs and prevent nine billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions. With statistics like that, it is a wonder why everyone has not already switched to compact fluorescent light bulbs.

When it comes to managing energy in your home or commercial space, swapping out regular light bulbs for energy efficient ones is a very easy task which can have beneficial long term effects. A CFL tends to last between four and ten times longer than a regular light bulb. Because of this, money is not only saved in the electric bill, but also physically purchasing light bulbs. DOUBBLE WHAMMY!
