Make the Change, Flip the Switch January 19, 2008Posted by smooregasbord in Eco/Green.
“If every American home replaced just one light bulb with an ENERGY STAR qualified bulb, we would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes for a year, more than $600 million in annual energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of more than 800,000 cars.” – www.energystar.gov
Last year, Casey and I changed every bulb in our house to a compact fluorescent bulb (CFL) with the exception of our dining room fixture. It works on a dimmer which has not been compatible with CFLs until now. Over at The Daily Green, they feature a variety of CFLs in every shape and size and those that also work with dimmers. They even have an Anti-Bug CFL which casts a yellow hue that is pleasing to the human eye and, evidently, not so pleasing to the eyes of a bug! I’ll be switching my current CFLs on my patio to these when spring gets near. No more pesky moths and other flying critters fluttering around on my porch!
