Energy saving light bulbs are an important option for households around the world, and this is the case for reasons than you might think. They aren’t just a great way to help your environment, they can also be great for saving you money.
Energy saving lightbulbs are generally able to last longer than their higher consumption competitors, because of the lower stress placed on them. This is good because you won’t need to buy as many lightbulbs, saving you money and also reducing the amount of waste you’re producing.
The other big benefit of energy saving light bulbs is the obvious one; they consume less energy. This is a benefit both from an environmental perspective as well as a money saving perspective.
There are, unfortunately, some obvious downsides to energy saving light bulbs. While they are saving most of their energy through a reduction in heat waste, most brands of these more environmentally friendly bulbs will also produce a lower intensity light. In most instances this isn’t too big of a deal, although it isn’t to everybody’s taste.
