Bright side of light bulb changes

Manufacturers have been phasing them out for the last few years to comply with the 2007 Energy Act. The most common alternatives are CFLs and LEDs. CFLs only need one-fifth to one-third the electricity of incandescent's to produce the same amount of light and last about 10 times as long. "They start up initially, but takes them a while to warm up. So, to reach the optimum light output it's going to take a couple of minutes," said lighting designer, Don Dragoo. If you need light immediately in an area of your home, CFLs might be a problem. You could try an LED. They are 10 percent more efficient than CFLs.
