Compact Fluorescent Lights

By Douglas Mednansky
A compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), also called compact fluorescent light, energy-saving light, and compact fluorescent tube, is a fluorescent lamp designed to replace an incandescent lamp; some types fit into light fixtures formerly used for incandescent lamps. The lamps use a tube which is curved or folded to fit into the space of an incandescent bulb, and a compact electronic ballast in the base of the lamp.
Compared to general-service incandescent lamps giving the same amount of visible light, CFLs use one-fifth to one-third the electric power, and last eight to fifteen times longer. A CFL has a higher purchase price than an incandescent lamp, but can save over five times its purchase price in electricity costs over the lamp's lifetime. Like all fluorescent lamps, CFLs contain mercury, which complicates their disposal. In many countries, governments have established recycling schemes for CFLs and glass generally.
CFLs radiate a spectral power distribution that is different from that of incandescent lamps. Improved phosphor formulations have improved the perceived colour of the light emitted by CFLs, such that some sources rate the best "soft white" CFLs as subjectively similar in colour to standard incandescent lamps.
About Us: Lighting Consulting and Energy Conservation Consultants
We are marketers of long life and energy saving lighting products. Save Energy Consultants has developed relationships with customers across the country. With our associates we have a combined 50+ years of experience. We have focused primarily in the Upper Midwest section of the United States and seek to expand into the other areas of the country especially as energy costs continue to escalate.
Lighting products account for approx. 60% of our annual sales. Our fluorescents are built to very high standards. They are built to last longer than a standard tube and maintain 80-85% of their initial light output, whereas any of the BIG 3 tubes will lose 40-55% of their brightness within an 18 - 24 month period. Our lights were designed to replace 4 standard tubes with 2 of ours; cutting your customers electricity costs by 50% or more, and supplies a light for your customers, which is 85-90% similar to natural sunlight. Our demonstrations system allows us to market our product to a minimum of 80% of the people who see them in their fixture.
We are committed to delivering the most energy-efficient technologies to our customers. LED (light-emmitting diode) lighting is a revolutionary lighting technology that actually creates more light with less energy. LED lights are available for a wide variety of applications including bulbs, floodlights, street lamps, industrial lights, garden lights, grow lights, underwater lights, spotlights, track lights and more.
With the wide variety of LED lighting products we can offer, we would like to quote and provide you more details directly. So if you are looking for something in particular, need more information, or are ready to make a purchase, please contact us today.
We are introducing a revolutionary new ballast called the SwitchGenie™. It is able to fire any 2 - 4 lamp T8, 120 or 277 volt fixture, while being able to turn on 1, 2, 3 or all 4 lights with no additional wiring. In addition the SwitchGenie is the only ballast made here in the United States.
We have also just added Power Efficiency Units to our Energy Conservation lineup. The Power Factor Correction products we offer, are designed to reduce energy consumption and save. The PowerMaster product line is designed to improve the "power factor" and reduce the amount of reactive power being drawn at a location.
