Why Purchase an Energy Saving Lightbulb?
There are several different make and models of the energy saving lightbulb on the market today. Some look just like the traditional round bulb that most of us have known and taken for granted all our lives. Others may appear elongated, twisted or even appear to be a set of fluorescent tongs. People tell us there are very good reasons for buying an energy saving lightbulb, but do not always get around to mentioning those reasons. Here are a few reasons why an energy saving lightbulb just makes sense.
The fact of the matter is that energy saving lightbulbs do save you money. The most immediate way you save is that you have to purchase fewer lightbulbs to get through the year. In many cases, one energy saving lightbulb can last for as long as ten times longer than a traditional bulb, but only cost twice the price. If you are one that likes to use a lot of lamplight in the home, this can mean a great deal of money saved over the course of the year.
Another way the energy saving lightbulb impacts your bottom line is that it will use much less energy than a traditional bulb. Over time, you will save a decent amount of money on your power bill. The savings will easily cover the difference in cost between purchasing a traditional bulb and an energy saving model, and even save you a few more pennies per month as well. Coupled with the longer life of the energy saving bulb, you end up with a significant amount of savings.
Aside from the financial advantages of using an energy saving bulb, there is also the matter of convenience. Chances are that you have at least one or two light fixtures that are difficult to reach without a ladder. Overhead lighting or light fixtures in the basement are not always easy to reach. Because the energy saving lightbulb lasts longer, you can look forward to fewer instances of climbing up or over something in order to change a burned out bulb. This happy convenience has been enough in and of itself to entice some people to give the energy saving lightbulb a try.
