The truth about CFLs.

  1. Their life span has improved 38% since 1999. They now last 4x-10x as long as incandescents.
  2. The light they cast has also improved; it’s hard to tell the difference between CFL & incandescent.
  3. You can use them with dimmer switches, you just have to read the package & get the right one.
  4. The ballast design has been improved to eliminate buzzing noise.
  5. They are more reasonably priced than you may think: $2-3 per bulb.
  6. They use a tiny fraction of the energy that an incandescent bulb uses… and the one-year energy savings for switching just one bulb is approximately $6.
