According to the US Department of Energy, if every household replaced just one traditional light bulb with a energy-saving compact fluorescent replacement bulb, the United States would save enough energy to provide power to three million homes for a year. Compact fluorescent light bulbs
(also referred to as CFLs) work by using electricity to heat mercury and argon vapor which causes the phosphor coating on the bulb to glow. This process uses much less energy than heating a filament as traditional incandescent replacement light bulbs
Compact fluorescent light bulbs
are available in a variety of styles and sizes, including dimmable bulbs for maximum control and energy efficiency. Genesis Lamp Corporation offers a wide selection of compact fluorescent lamps, for home and business applications.
