What is a Fluorescent Light? or Compact Fluorescent Light?

A fluorescent light bulb is an energy efficient replacement for incandescent lightning. The fluorescent bulb provides the same amount of light as much higher forms of incandescent lightning. The bulb works by using electricity to excite gases which glow over time. Neon lamps work similarly, but the soft white glow of fluorescent lamps is not designed to attract a user’s attention. The bulb is intended to illuminate a given area.

What is a Fluorescent Light?

For many years, fluorescent light bulbs only came in long tubes. They were associated with businesses, schools and other institutions. The desire for more energy efficient and greener forms of lightning gave birth to the rise of the compact fluorescent bulb. The compact fluorescent bulb is designed to fit in the older incandescent sockets. The bulbs use less energy, but they often have an equivalent brightness. Although a buyer can choose between CFL bulbs and incandescent bulbs, the Obama administration passed a law that will force older incandescent lights off the market by the end of 2013. If a person still wants the older incandescent bulbs, he needs to stock up now.
