Energy Saving Light Bulbs

November 13th, 2006 at 03:58 pm

My mom asked me to replace a light bulb in the bathroom yesterday. When I went to do so, I was amazed to see that the light actually took four 100w light bulbs. This seemed a bit of an overkill for the bathroom that isn't that big.

Instead of replacing the light bulb, I I decided to take it out along with one of the bulbs that was still working and placed the cover back on. There was hardly a difference.

A bit later I found some energy saving bulbs stored in a drawer and went back and switched the 100w regular bulbs with the higher efficient bulbs. This worked so well that I went to the other three bathrooms in the house and did the same. I was able to eliminate 6 bulbs and switch 6 others to the high efficient models. My little step to save the earth for the day Smile

    Heck yeah, energy efficient bulbs are amazing. I'm never buying regular light bulbs again.

    My Kill-a-Watt meter shows that energy efifcient bulbs use about one-quarter the energy of incandescent. Definitely worth it when you do your whole house.
