Shopping Smart: Compact Fluorescent Bulbs
It makes good sense to use compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs) to replace hard-to-reach incandescent bulbs or those lights used more than three hours a day. Since CFLs use far fewer watts, buy bulbs based on the lumen output. Also, CFLs tend to dim slightly with age, so buy bulbs with 20% greater lumen output than the standard bulb equivalent.
|Standard CFLs can be used to replace ordinary bulbs.||
Decorative CFLs are available for fixtures with visible bulbs.
|Three-way CFLs often use a separate ballast and bulb.|
