Thought So - But First, Let's quickly review Incandescent Lamps' Hidden Costs:
Ever wonder why incandescent bulbs get so hot?
Reason: They produce light by using electric current to heat a metallic filament to a high temperature (above 500 deg. Celcius). That is Hot!! and that's why only 20% of energy used becomes light and... the rest changes into heat.
Can you see why perhaps it may cost a lot to use incandescent lighting?
Additionally...light bulbs expire every other month or so. It's no surprise that the filaments burn-out.
This means on-going lamp maintenance is required.
Bottom Line:Incandescent Lamps cost more to operate ... a whole lot more.
Compact Fluorescent Lamps
Compact fluorescent lamps are small-size fluorescent lamps.
They are 5 times more efficient than standard incandescent.
They outlast incandescent lamps 10 times.
Example:There are varying qualities of Compact Fluorescent lamps. A good quality lamp is rated to last 10,000 Hours. If it ran continuously for 1-year, it would have reached only 8760 Hours. (365 days x 24 hours/day).
Imagine a Facility that has, say, 500 regular light bulbs.
Can you see the savings in manpower hours if no lights require changes for a year by switching to compact fluorescent lamps?
