The Importance of CFL's

We all have heard by now how changing out regular incandescent light bulbs to compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL's) can make a big difference. We recently had a friend break down exactly how much energy we are saving by switching out our old bulbs.  We were impressed by the amount of energy - and money! - we're saving:

Main Room:
2x100W to 2x23W = saving 154 Watts

1x100W to 1x23W & 175W to 1x18W = saving 134 Watts

3x60W to 3x13W = saving 141 Watts

1x60W to 1x13W = saving 47 Watts

So, judging by past habits, we will be saving 1kWh of electricity for every 3 hours the lights are on.  That's $1 in savings for every 24 hours use the lights ($0.13/hr electricity rate).  That saves us $5/month (conservatively, probably it's a bit more) and reduces our carbon footprint.

Good news!  And such an easy step in helping our planet AND our wallets.  We really hope you'll take a moment to switch out your old bulbs and start saving, too!
