How many times have you heard someone telling you to that in order to save energy and to save on the electric bill? That’s a good practice for both of those reasons, but to increase your savings even more, purchase ENERGY STAR Qualified Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs). These energy saving products can boost your home energy savings up to $40.00 over the life of the bulb. These CFLs use 75% less energy than standard bulbs and produce 75% less heat, adding to your overall home energy savings.
One of the most annoying things is to be reading under a light that produces so much heat that when you are done reading, you realize you have also gotten a suntan! So before your friends and family ask if you have recently gotten back from a vacation in the Virgin Islands, make the switch to CFLs.
You’ve seen them, although you may not recognize them by name. They are the bulbs with the wavy looking shape, almost like you’re taking a florescent light, twisting it and then placing it upon the base.
They are extremely popular among current energy savings products and give the lamps in your home an up to date look, while being part of a total home energy savings program!
