Daylight Savings Time

Posted on/at 6:44 AM by Sparky


Well its daylight savings time again that means we get an extra hour today, Maybe now is a good time for you to start getting rid of those old incandescent light bulbs too. For a given light output, compact fluorescent lamps use between one fifth and one third of the power of equivalent incandescent lamps. I myself have changed most of mine and we can see a difference in our electric bill from it. The downfall is the purchase price of an integrated CFL is typically 3 to 10 times greater than that of an equivalent incandescent lamp, yet the extended lifetime and lower energy use will compensate for the higher initial cost.

the reason I had posted this is just this week a salesman came to our place of business and had some LED bulbs, they are pretty expensive, however they are very bright and last about 20 years according to him.http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-bin/store/commerce.cgi?product=MR16

some of these are not much more than the CFL counterparts.
