It's Time for a Bright Idea: Go Fluorescent

June 02, 2002|MORRIS CAREY and JAMES CAREY | ASSOCIATED PRESS

To see better and save money at the same time, try fluorescent lighting.

Fluorescent lights now are made to fit right where your old incandescent lighting is located. Just unscrew the old bulb and screw in the new one.

Fluorescent bulbs use about 20% less energy and give about 15% more light. And, although they are about six times more expensive than the old-fashioned kind, they last about 10 times longer. You'll have more light--and more evenly distributed light--that is longer lasting and less costly.
