Electric Energy-saving Light
Energy saving light bulbs also called Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) are a
modern type of light bulb that will fit into a standard light fitting, usually a
bayonet fitting and Edison screw fittings.
Energy saving light bulb are often called low energy lamps because they use less
energy than the traditional tungsten filament bulbs that they replace. As they
plug in directly to the normal light fittings.
Energy saving light lamp inside is coated with a phosphor that gives off the
light and there is an electronic ballast to start the lamp operating.
Energy-saving light bulbs are available in different sizes and shapes to fit in
almost any fixture, for indoors and outdoors.
Compact Fluorescent Lamps are sold by the wattage, like the normal bulbs.
However because energy saving light bulbs use a lot less energy, a lower wattage
energy saving light bulb will be needed to give out the same amount of light.
Energy-saving light bulbs use about 75 percent less energy than standard
incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer.
*Energy-saving light bulbs Saving about $30 or more in electricity costs over
each bulb's lifetime.
The Government's Market Transformation Unit has tested several
leading brands (including retailers' own-brands) of Energy-saving light
bulbs and conventional, tungsten bulbs. It found that, generally, around 8 of 10
bulbs of either type exceed the median (average) life stated on the box.
Specifically, at least 90% of bulbs from all brands of CFLs with a claimed
average life of 6,000 hours or less exceeded this average life. Even where much
longer lives were claimed - of 12,000 to 15,000 hours - over 70% of bulbs
exceeded the claimed average life. So the overall conclusion was the CFLs do
really last - on average - at least as long as the life stated on the box.
When the same team tested conventional bulbs they found a similar result for
bulbs that were claimed to last for in excess of 1,000 hours - these bulbs
typically lasted for 1,150 hours. Cheaper tungsten filament bulbs, that did not
claim to be long life, still met their manufacturers' claims, but rarely lasted
for more than about 900 hours and some brands only lasted for
600 hours on average.
This testing means that you can believe the claims on the boxes. What is more,
it confirms that even the cheapest energy saving CFLs will typically last for
5,000 hours of use, compared to only just over 1,000 hours on average for the
best conventional bulbs.
Energy-saving light bulbs Produce about 75 percent less heat, so can cut energy
costs associated with home cooling.
An energy saving light bulb that uses 16 watts of energy replaces an standard
bulb utilizing 60 watts of energy. This eliminates the emission of 1300 pounds
of carbon dioxide and 26 pounds of sulfur dioxide from a coal fired
plant-producing electricity. So why should you care? If you have about 30 light
bulbs in your house, replacing them with energy efficient light bulbs will save
you trips to the store to replace burned out lights, and about $900 over the
life of the light bulbs. Many stores are running great sales on these types of
energy saving light bulbs, so you have nothing to lose. Make a change that will
help the environment, and your energy bills.
Energy-saving light bulbs provides bright, warm light but uses about 75% less
energy than standard lighting, produce 75 percent less heat.
The best fixtures to use are usually found in the following areas of your home:
family and living rooms
You should also check the lumen rating to find the right CFL. The higher
the lumen rating, the greater the light output. Consult the following chart to
determine what energy saving lamp wattage is best to replace your incandescent
Wattage equivalence table
CFL : incandescent : brightness
5 watt : 25 watt equiv : 180 lm
7 watt : 40 watt equiv : 290 lm
9 watt : 40+ watt equiv : 480 lm
11 watt : 60 watt equiv : 600 lm
15 watt : 75 watt equiv : 825 lm
18 watt : 100 watt equiv : 1015 lm
Guide to fittings types available
B22 = bayonet fitting, also known as BC
B15 = small bayonet fitting, also known as SBC
E27 = large screw fitting, also known as ES
E14 = small screw fitting, also known as SES
The energy used in the average home can be responsible for more than twice the
greenhouse gas emissions of the average car. When you use less energy at home,
you reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and help protect our
environment from the risks of global climate change.

offers ENERGY STAR qualified bulbs in our Energy
Efficient Bulbs section.
The ENERGY STAR label was
created by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
and the Department of Energy (DOE), to help
consumers easily identify and purchase energy
efficient products and services. ENERGY STAR
qualifying products use less energy than standard
products to do the same amount of work, allowing
consumers to reduce energy use, thereby cutting back
on the pollution that stems from energy production.
