Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
Consumers are looking for environmentally friendly lighting solutions that will reduce their lighting costs while helping to save the planet. CFL (compact fluorescent) bulbs are the most widely used and environmentally friendly light sources in use. CFL bulbs are available in nearly every shape that halogen and incandescent bulbs are, but use about twenty percent of the wattage and produce little to no heat.
CFL light bulbs produce a diffused light that can provide any space with uniform light coverage that is ideal for general illumination. In order to aid consumers in finding the best CFL bulbs, BulbAmerica.com has expanded their catalog of CFL bulbs to include the most technologically advanced CFL bulbs in all shapes, wattage, and color temperatures from the most trusted names in lighting including Osram, Philips, GE, Platinum, Ushio, and more.
Since the beginning of their usage, consumers have been concerned that CFL light bulbs do not produce adequate color quality. In a recent interview, a BulbAmerica.com lighting expert addressed a number of consumers concerns saying,“Consumers weary of the light quality from CFL light bulbs are often reacting to their past experiences with older fluorescent bulbs. These older CFL light bulbs often released an unpleasant blue color and an unpleasant audible buzzing sound." Today’s CFL light bulbs have simply evolved and are just much better. In a recent study in New Zealand called the ‘RightLight Challenge’, researches set out to test whether people could really see the difference between CFL bulbs and incandescent bulbs. The answer was clear: Out of 8500 people, nearly 70% reported they could not tell the difference between CFL light and incandescent light when placed inside rooms with identical incandescent (standard) light and CFL fixtures.
For the soon approaching spring and summer months, CFL light bulbs are a very smart investment for home and business owners. Unlike halogen and incandescent bulbs, CFL bulbs produce almost zero heat, keeping your space cool. Consumers should remember that incandescent light sources spend more energy producing heat than light and are therefore much less efficient than CFL bulbs. The added efficiency from CFL bulbs will allow consumers to save on air conditioning costs. In addition, consumers will also save on bulb replacements as the new CFL bulbs have a much longer lifespan.
