Conserving energy, saves money.
Using compact fluorescent light bulbs is one way to conserve energy in your home or office.
Compact fluorescent light bulbs are now available in all shapes and sizes.
Although you will pay more for the compact fluorescent light bulbs, in the long run, they will save you both money and time (replacing light bulbs).
When replacing standard light bulbs with the compact fluorescent, start with the lights in your home that are on the most.
When using compact fluorescent, when you first turn on the light, you will notice that the light appears dim. As time passes, the light will become brighter.
Watch for rebates on compact fluorescent and save even more.
Dispose of burnt out compact fluorescents appropriately. Some home improvement stores have a recycling program for just this purpose.
