Psst! It Really is a Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb (CFL) August 5, 2010

Posted by bowmanlamps in compact fluorescent light bulbs, lumen output number, energy savings, lighting.

Size and shape do matter when it comes to light bulbs. While most consumers are intrigued by the 75 percent energy savings of compact fluorescent light bulbs  (CFL) over traditional incandescents, some do not like the look of the common spiral-shaped CFL.

That’s where a little extra design comes in to save the day. It’s easy to find CFLs disguised inside the standard A-bulb shape. So what’s the difference between a CFL and a covered A-bulb shaped CFL? Not much:

  • The cover may slightly reduce the amount of light given off.
  • The cover may slightly reduce the life of the bulb.
  • A-bulb shaped CFL bulbs may cost slightly more than a standard CFL because of increased material and manufacturing costs.
  • A-bulb shaped CFL bulbs come in a variety of shades of white, including soft, bright, and daylight white.
  • So this is really an instance in which you “can have your cake and eat it too.”  Enjoy the energy savings and low maintenance costs of a long-lasting, energy-saving CFL light bulb, with the looks of a traditional light bulb. Buy some here.
