Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs and Linear Fluorescent Bulbs
Fluorescent Bulbs come in many different shapes and sizes. A Compact Fluorescent Lamp, or CFL for short, can be used to replace traditional incandescent bulbs. CFL Bulbs run much cooler than traditional light bulbs, use much less energy, and have a longer life span. Linear Fluorescent Tube Lamps are common for many commercial and residential fixtures. It is a popular option because of the amount of light that they give off and the amount of energy that is used to keep them lit. Self Ballasted Compact Fluorescent Bulbs are also a popular option.
Types of Flourescent Lights
Fluorescent fixtures come in many different shapes, sizes, wattage and colors. Many lamps require a ballast to operate, while some plug in CFL bulbs are self ballasted for easier installation. CFL bulbs are more energy efficient than other traditional forms of lighting like incandescent and HID types, making them a popular option for large industrial uses where savings is optimal.
