Fluorescent lamps are a low pressure mercury electric discharge lamp, tubular in shape in which a
fluorescent coating transforms ultraviolet energy into visible light. They are the popular choice for
businesses since they are more efficient than incandescent bulbs. Fluorescent lamps emit less heat and
last up to 20,000 hours. Compact Fluorescent bulbs or CFL's combine fluorescent efficiency with
incandescent convenience. ENERGY STAR recommends installing qualified CFL's in fixtures that are
used at least 15 minutes at a time or several hours per day. The best places in your home to use CFL's are:
family and living rooms, kitchen, dining room, bedrooms & outdoors.
We have 8 categories for Fluorescent lamps: T8, T12, T5, U-Shape, Self-Ballasted/Screw In, Compact,
