Quick Tips: CFL Light Bulbs
CFL Light Bulbs
CFL light bulbs are a great invention. They save money and they protect the environment. CFL stands for compact florescent lamp. Why should you consider them? For one thing, they last for roughly 10 times longer than traditional bulbs. This means you’ll be buying and replacing CFL’s far far less often. Second, they’re efficient. CFL’s take less power than standard bulbs, yet provide the same amount of light. The latest CFL’s give a warm inviting light and CFL’s can be used nearly anywhere including table lamps, track lighting, ceiling fixtures and outdoors lights. There are even CFL’s for lamps with three way switches and lights using a dimmer switch. Be aware though that CFL’s contain mercury so don’t throw them away, take them to a recycling center or your local hardware store.
