Tips for Choosing Home Lighting

Compact fluorescent bulbs have been a trends for home decoration. The most largest advantages of them is energy saving. Adopted by householders as a longer-lasting, energy efficient alternative to the traditional incandescent lightbulb, compact fluorescents consume one-third of the power and last 1,000 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

These compact fluorescent bulbs are four times more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs and provide the same lighting.

- Use CFLs in all the portable table and floor lamps in your home. Consider carefully the size and fit of these systems when you select them. Some home fixtures may not accommodate some of the larger CFLs.
- When shopping for new light fixtures, consider buying dedicated compact fluorescent fixtures with built-in ballasts that use pin-based replacement bulbs.
- For spot lighting, consider CFLs with reflectors. The lamps range in wattage from 13-watt to 32-watt and provide a very directed light using a reflector and lens system.
- Take advantage of daylight by using light-colored, loose-weave curtains on your windows to allow daylight to penetrate the room while preserving privacy. Also, decorate with lighter colors that reflect daylight.

So there are more and more family choosing CFLs. When you save on energy, you are also saving on your electricity bill and helping the environment. It is widely accepted that fluorescent light bulbs do, in fact, work longer than traditional light bulbs. Many people dislike the look of fluorescent bulbs, but you have to remember that the CFL bulbs are not the same that you see in some kitchens or when you go shopping. These are smaller—the size of a traditional bulb, so you don’t get that annoying overhead lighting.
