Switching from traditional light bulbs (called incandescent) to CFLs is an effective, simple change everyone in America can make right now. Making this change will help to use less electricity at home and prevent greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global climate change. Lighting accounts for close to 20 percent of the average home’s electric bill. ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs use up to 75 percent less energy (electricity) than incandescent light bulbs, last up to 10 times longer, cost little up front, and provide a quick return on investment
Why should people use CFLs?
Many engineering and architectural texts contain an incorrect view of how the eye deals with light. In these texts one encounters the correct statement that our eyes have two types of photoreceptors, namely cones and rods, along with the erroneous statement that the cones are responsible for day vision and the rods responsible for night vision. Vision scientists have long known that this segregation of day and night vision is overly simplistic. Nevertheless, until some recent efforts by two pragmatic scientists, the significance of a better understanding of the workings of the eye for lighting practice and lighting energy efficiency had been entirely overlooked.
For the past fifteen years, office and retail facility operators have had the opportunity to realize enormous energy cost reductions as a result of energy efficient lighting retrofits. Because of a lack of viable options for HID systems, industrial facilities have been left behind. Today, new lighting technology allows industrial facilities to participatein the lighting efficiency revolution. By replacing your High Pressure Sodium or Metal Halide Lighting system with T5HO or High Performance T8 fixtures, specifically designed to replace HID Hi-Bay fixtures, you can enjoy substantial energy savings, superior performance, and improved reliability.
