UL Sets the Record Straight on Safety and Compact CFLs


CAMAS, WASH.—Environmental issues are a top priority for many consumers. These days, it’s hard to watch TV without hearing about how you can help the environment by “going green.” One increasingly popular way of contributing to the green movement is to install compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), a fluorescent bulb designed to emit as much light as traditional light bulbs while using less energy. CFLs use about 75 percent less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and can last up to 10 times longer. CFLs also produce about 75 percent less heat, so they’re safer to operate and can cut cooling costs. To put savings into perspective, if you presently use 50 lamps (100 watts), you’re saving about $550/year in electricity. Each year, retailers sell approximately 130 million to 150 million CFLs.
