1. The Bulbs are less
expensive. If you compare the lifespan of the bulbs on the package, an
incandescent bulb will only work for 750 hours, while a CFL has a rated
life of 6,000 - 10,000 hours. If an average incandescent costs $1.00/ea,
while a CFL costs $2.93/ea (see
model #2426-3vp), comparing the two, CFLs cost only $2.93/6000hrs
while incandescent costs $6.00/6000hrs.
2. Energy costs for CFLs are
cheaper. The CFL uses 20 watts; the incandescent bulb uses 75 watts. That’s
a difference of 55 watts per hour of usage in favor of the CFL. Often
CFLs can save you over $50 in electricity over the life of the bulb.
3. Fewer replacements. Have
you ever wondered how much it time and money it costs to replace a light
bulb? It has been estimated that to change 20 sockets of bulbs, approximately
6 hours is saved comparably by using CFLs.
4. Reduce greenhouse gasses.
According to the US Energy information commission, by replacing twenty
bulbs with CFLs in your home, over the course of a year you’ll eliminate
nearly a ton of carbon dioxide emissions.
