  • Use CFLs to save energy

Why CFLsCompact fluorescent bulbs : (CFLs) use about two-thirds less energy than incandescent bulbs with no reduction in quality of light. Compact fluorescent bulbs will give an incandescent bulb's warm, soft light, while using up to 75 percent less electricityCFLs are slightly costlier but are worth investing as they are smaller, cheaper, brighter, and offer improved color quality. Typically, a 23-watt compact fluorescent bulb can replace a 90- or 100-watt incandescent bulb. Use compact fluorescent bulbs in fixtures that are on for more than four hours a day. By replacing only two 75 Watt light bulbs that are on four hours a day by two 15 watt energy-saving lamps, you can save almost 18 Kilo Watt hours per year.Less Energy More LightWhile
