Sensible Compact Fluorescent Bulbs
Want to save money on your electric bill? The easiest and best way might be to switch
g9 bulb
normal incandescent light bulbs to compact fluorescent bulbs.
Compact fluorescents lights (CFLs) are rapidly changing the way the world lights its houses. Compact
fluorescents are quickly replacing the energy-guzzling incandescent bulbs that are being phased out in
many places across the globe. CFLs cost more than incandescent bulbs, but they wind up saving you
money in the long run due to the fact that they draw a lot less power and last a lot longer than
incandescent bulbs.
Incandescent bulbs are only rated to last for 750-1,000 hours of use, while CFLs are rated at 6,000-
15,000 hours. And CFLs deliver 3-4 times as much light as incandescents do for the same amount of
You can screw CFL bulbs into the same light sockets you’ve been using for regular bulbs.
But before you buy any CFLs, there are some things you need to know, and you’ll have some decisions to
Like regular fluorescent tubes, CFL bulbs will burn out a lot faster if you turn them on and off a lot. It’s
recommended that you only use CFLs in situations where you’re going to be using them for a minimum
of fifteen minutes, and preferably for longer with
security lights
Fluorescents have a deserved reputation for flickering, but that’s because most of them have been, up
until now, fitted with magnetic ballasts. Electronic ballasts, which most new CFLs have, don’t flicker,
though they’re more expensive.
If you'd like to use a CFL with a dimmer or a 3-way switch, you’ll need to get special, higher priced CFL
bulbs. And if you want to use dimmer switches or three-ways, you’ll need to obtain new ones that are
specially designed for CFLs, or they’ll quickly burn your CFLs out.

You have several varieties of CFL bulbs to get from, and each type performs a specific function. You have
to watch out to get the right bulb for what you want, or the bulb may burn out fast or not deliver the
quality of light you want.
A CFL bulb can deliver any of a wide variety of colours on the light colour spectrum, from the warm
colours that incandescent
energy saving bulbs
deliver to the cool white light of natural daylight bulbs.
CFLs can deliver a quality of light far superior to that of incandescents. Natural daylight CFLs put out a
light that is like daylight and is considered healthier than regular lighting. But if you’re used to
incandescent lights and want to duplicate it, CFLs can produce a similar light.
If you want a warm-spectrum light, you should obtain a spiral CFL bulb. They’re more energy-efficient
than most other CFL bulbs and are good for mood lighting.
Some spiral CFLs possess a dome cover, so they look like regular incandescent bulbs. Their light is similar
to that of “soft white” incandescent bulbs.
Globe CFLs look a little bit like incandescents. These bulbs are designed to be used in hot places that
regular CFLs might not be able to handle.
If you'd like a reading light, you might try a CFL flood light that provides a soft, white light. They don’t
generate the heat that incandescent flood lights do.
Candelbra bulbs have a torpedo shape that’s wonderful for smaller lamp fixtures.
Triple tube bulbs are little, but they give off as much light as a much bigger bulb.
