The Bridge Fairy is writing a standup comedy set... I'm not procrastinating... really!
I replaced 17 60 to 100 watt incandescent bulbs. I figure that is about 800 watts saved for 6 hours per day—roughly 50 cents per day.
The bulbs are about $4 each now. I think they will pay for themselves in savings alone in about 4 months.
They also do not put out as much heat as a regular light bulb—a good thing if you live in the South.
They do not have to be replaced hardly ever. I have several that are > 15 years old.
They fit where a regular light bulb fits. I have 2 in a medicine cabinet light bar made for 40 watt bulbs.
They do not look good in the small track light fixtures (PAR 20 Size). A 15 watt CF is as bright as a 60 watt bulb
- two of them over my kitchen sink is bright enough to about blind me - but I am ordering smaller wattage, reflector flood CF’s to go up there.
That is all I can think of!
