The old age light bulbs are being replaced everywhere by the modern florescent lights. This is a great step towards conserving valuable energy and in a small but significant way to reduce global warming. From the time since the energy efficient light bulbs were introduced, the technology has come a long way and evolved in many ways to become more and more efficient. At this stage it becomes important for every consumer to understand the superiority of such bulbs and various other facts related to them to make the best use of this technology.

• Do these bulbs emit sufficient light? This is one of the very commonly asked questions regarding florescent light bulbs. The earlier models were bit dim but the ones being used right now throughout the world are very bright. People using such light bulbs for commercial as well as domestic purposes are very satisfied.

• How is their energy saving measured? The new age florescent bulbs consume only about ¼ of the energy consumed by traditional bulbs. This means that a florescent lamp of 16-18W will produce same amount of light as a 60w traditional bulb. This way even if you are 6 florescent lights in your house, you will be consuming only as much electricity as 2 normal bulbs would do. Though no drastic changes appear immediately in your electricity bill, you will see the difference in about 6 months.

• Are they only for indoor lighting? Not at all, in fact there are varieties in florescent lamps specially designed for specific purposes. The most widely used type is the compact florescent light bulbs which are used to light up both indoors and outdoors. These come in colors as well. Equally popular are the LEDs, which have brought a kind of revolution in the field of decoration. As they are bright and colorful, they bring great charm to the surroundings no matter where they are used.

• How does it save the environment? It is difficult to understand how little bulbs contribute to global warming. But hundreds of thousands of traditional light bulbs around the world light up every day and emit substantial amount of heat. This is not the case with energy efficient lights. They use less energy to produce same amount of light, but produce negligible amount of heat. On the other hand it conserves valuable electricity by using it in less quantity.

• Does this light have health hazards? Many people argue and pose concern over the kind of light florescent bulbs produce. Migraine, skin issues, cancer and so on are associated with continuous exposure to such light and by staying very near to the bulbs. The researchers though have not found any substantial evidence regarding these concerns.

• Can they be recycled? Indeed, any of the florescent lights can be recycled. In fact the retailers who sell these lamps will have all the details related to recycling such bulbs to avoid any kind of damage to the environment.

By switching to energy efficient lamps, you will not only be helping yourself but also fulfilling your service to the planet you live on.
