Energy Efficient Bulbs is the official website for a wide range of information about energy saving lightbulbs, including compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), LED lights, and much, much more. Explore these pages for a wealth of information on energy efficient lights, reviews of the top CFL bulbs and LEDs, tips about energy efficient practices and products in general, and news about green energy programs and initiatives.
Millions of people are turning to energy efficient bulbs each year, as breakthroughs in technology have made CFL and LED lightbulbs not only energy-efficient and friendly to the environment, but as the costs have dropped the bulbs can actually save you money in the long run.
While CFLs and LEDs may initially be more expensive than traditional incandescent lightbulbs, they last much, much longer than traditional bulbs.
Styles of Energy Efficient Bulbs
While the style and color of energy-efficient bulbs was once limited, that’s no longer the case at all, as both compact fluorescents and LED bulbs are available in a wide range of colors and styles, including for use in applications such as diffused bulbs, track lighting, recessed lighting, spotlights, holiday lights, dimmable lights, and floodlights.
CFL lightbulbs also come in a variety of shapes, including spiral bulbs, triple tube lamps, globe lamps, flood lamps, and candelabra, so it’s very easy to pick the perfect bulb for the particular lamp or light you want to use it in.
Costs of Energy Saving Lightbulbs
Technology and research continue to improve and bring down the cost of energy saving bulbs and other products, especially with various “green energy” stimulus bills in countries such as the US.
While swapping out your old inefficient incandescent bulbs may not seem as sexy as installing a solar system or a wind turbine (see travel blogs for many other countries relying on wind power), something as simple as using CFLs when your old bulbs burn out one by one can actually have a greater impact on both the environment.
There’s an enormous amount of energy to immediately be saved if the billions and billions of old incandescent bulbs in use are replaced with more energy efficient choices such as compact fluorescent light bulbs or LEDs.
