    Compact Flourescent Light Bulbs

    I just bought my first pack over the weekend and WOW! I love the light in my kitchen now. I can actually see!

    DH wants some in our bedroom, and to replace all other standard bulbs that we can.

    Has anyone realized electricity savings from these yet?

    Re: Compact Flourescent Light Bulbs

    Several years ago we received from our power company coupons that allowed us to purchase the fluorescent lights very cheaply. We used them exclusively for a couple of years and did see a savings in the energy department. Then for some unknown reason they got swapped out for regular, and we noticed a difference in our bill. I am not sure when, how or why they got switched out, but we have since switched them back. I know that they do help and I cannot wait to see the savings again.

    As a side note one of the benefits of children growing up and leaving home for college is that the mysterious individual named "not me" seems to go with them. I suspect that character "not me" was the culprit in this case! :)

     We did notice a change when we first switched to flourescent bulbs, and they last longer too.
