Save Up to $60 with Compact Fluorescent Bulbs
Most of the light bulbs in your house are probably incandescent, much like the bulb Thomas Edison invented more than 100 years ago. Now, there’s a longer-lasting, more efficient alternative: the compact fluorescent.
Today’s compact fluorescents fit most household fixtures and give off the same warm, steady light as incandescents, using only one-quarter to one-third the energy and lasting 10 times as long.
A compact fluorescent bulb is initially more expensive than a standard bulb, but it can save you $30 to $60 dollars on electricity during its lifetime — and also keep half a ton of heat-trapping carbon dioxide out of the air.
