Conserve power with energy-saving light bulbs
Are you looking to reduce your carbon footprint, one small step at a time? Well, now you can, with energy-saving light bulbs. From LEDs to candle bulbs or even compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), you can find everything you need to keep your home or office lit efficiently, online on eBay.Wasting energy is exactly the same as wasting money – and that’s never okay! Not only will your hard-earned cash get spent on your utilities bills, but most forms of energy cause pollution and ecosystem damage. What’s worse still is that the energy sources that we depend on can’t be replaced, meaning once coal or oil run out, they’ll be gone forever. Do your bit to preserve power and switch your existing light bulbs with the energy-saving alternative.How do energy-saving light bulbs work?
Simply put, energy-saving light bulbs require much less wattage than traditional lightbulbs (incandescent lamps). When the light is switched on, the mercury vapour contained inside the glass tubes in the bulb give off light in the UV range. This stimulates the phosphorous coating on the inside of the glass tubes, which produces light in the visible range. The result is that energy light bulbs don’t have to work overtime to produce a lot of light, meaning they barely contribute to the carbon dioxide levels in the environment.
While energy-saving light bulbs may be more expensive upfront, they will provide much greater value given that they will barely need replacing. Why not give it a try?
