Cost-Saving Benefits of CFLs and Fluorescent Lamps

CFLs and fluorescent lamps save significant costs in electricity expenses, right? According to recent articles, many people are in doubt about this claim, and refuse to believe these bulbs are actually saving them money by using less energy. Furthermore, the higher initial cost of the bulbs is preventing many consumers from making the switch. However, tests have shown that CFLs can save households money even under the least ideal conditions.

CFLs and fluorescent lamps give off the same amount of light as their traditional incandescent counterparts, but they require considerably less electricity, which in turn reduces the damaging effects electric power generation causes to the environment. Incandescent light bulbs actually require four times the amount of energy to produce equivalent light in a fluorescent lamp. Fluorescent lamps are four to six times more efficient than incandescent lamps, reducing the power demand from local utilities. Because most power stations use coal as a source for electrical generation, they are large emitters of both greenhouse gas and mercury, which is naturally occurring in most coal that is used today.
