Illuminate the New Year with CFL Bulbs

1/6/2011

Here's a New Year's resolution you can actually keep!

Reduce your carbon footprint—and your energy bills—this year. An easy way to start is by replacing your incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs.

Why ditch the incandescents? Only about 10-15% of the electricity they consume is actually used to produce light. Up to 90% of that electricity produces heat! CFLs, on the other hand, generate about 70% less heat, trimming your electricity waste and your energy bills. Now that's a change you can feel good about!
