18 to 20 Watt CFL - 75W Equal Compact Fluorescents


Switching from your existing incandescent light bulb to a 75-watt-equal CFL bulb means keeping more money in your picket due to the high efficacy of compact fluorescent lamps. Using only 18 to 20 watts, these CFL bulbs use up to 75 percent less energy than incandescent lights, which will have you see savings of up to $125 per light over the life of the lamp. These savings are possible because of the internal process that occurs each time you turn the light on. Argon and mercury vapor fill the tube, and when a current is run through it, ultraviolet light is produced. This invisible light then excites the fluorescent coating found on the inside of the lamp, which in turn creates light without using nearly as much energy. Ranging from 2,700K to 6,500K, 75-watt-equal CFL bulbs are perfect for use in homes, offices, wall sconces, ceiling fans and most other places where traditional lighting sources are used. If you're in doubt about which bulbs to choose or need assistance with your decision, our expert team at 1000Bulbs is here to help you with all your lighting fixture needs.
