Electric lighting burns up to 25% of the average home lighting budget. Switching from standard incandescent bulbs to energy efficient will save about $30 or more in electrical costs over each bulbs lifetime. They also use about 75% less energy and last 10 times longer!
Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL) are mini versions of full sized fluorescents. They screw into standard light sockets and give off light that looks like standard incandescent light. The lighting actually looks warm and inviting.
Although they cost a bit more initially, in the long run, they save money. Who doesn't want to save money these days?
Since these bulbs use less electricity, they help prevent greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global climate change.
These bulbs can be used in family rooms, living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms, and outdoors.
I can't think of any reason not to switch to CFL, can you?
