Lets do the twist!

Lets do the twist!

Zoinks! Its me again, Dr Z!

You may have seen them. You may have heard about them. They are the hottest sensation since sliced bread. But few know that Compact Fluorescent light bulbs can actually save you money! You would be amazed at how much you spend on light bulbs. Lighting accounts for 20 percent of your electric bill at home and the average home has 30 light fixtures. Our dear friends at Environmental Protection Agency want to save us money and energy and therefore strongly recommends replacing standard bulbs in areas where lights are frequently used.(Family rooms, dining rooms, recreational rooms)  The EPA states on their ENERGY STAR site:

“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.

For the  individual household this means you save about $30 or more in electricity costs over  a compact fluorescent bulb’s lifetime, easily paying for its self several times over.

Until next time!

Dr Z
