Energy Saved Is Money Saved
Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs) use less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs. Even though a single CFL costs more than a single incandescent light bulb, you’ll save money in the long run because CFLs last longer. Just one CFL can save you about $42 or more in energy costs over the life of the bulb. So the extra money you spend at the store today is more than made up in savings on your energy bill tomorrow, and the next month, and the next month.
CFLs come in many shapes and sizes, so chances are there is a bulb that can meet your lighting needs. Our lighting guide can help you choose between the types of CFLs and show you where to use them. Whatever style you choose, you'll make a difference in your energy bill and the health of the environment.
