18 Watt 4 Pin GX24q-2 CFL Compact Fluorescents


The energy savings you will see when you use 18-watt, 4-pin, plug-in CFL GX24Q2 bulbs from 1000Bulbs is quite remarkable. Some of these bulbs save up to 80 percent in energy consumption compared to similar standard incandescent bulbs, which produce light by heating a tungsten filament. Unfortunately, this process is not very efficient and a lot of energy is lost during the process. Compact fluorescent light bulbs use a different, more efficient process. They contain an argon and mercury vapor and the molecules of that gas become excited when electricity passes through them. This produces ultraviolet light, which is transformed to visible light through a coating on the inside of the bulb. What this means is that you'll save money when you buy CFL bulbs from 1000Bulbs, where the prices and selection can't be beat.
