All the time in my house, we have been using compact flourescent lighting (CFL) dimmable bulbs.  Now, in celebration to my new book Green Lighting, I thought it was a good time to start.  Yes,  CFL bulbs are a good start if you have a problem just switching over from incandescent like a lot of my original clients did.  Now it’s better with Light Emitting Diode (LED) because your wives have a better chance of loving the light it produces and heck of a lot less energy.  My current CFLs are the GE 23 watt CFL bulbs.  I went to a 10 watt LED. 

Even better now, I can change the bulbs in my son’s room over to LED.  The bulbs I have are currently incandescents (65 watt) that we use on dimmers at half the voltage.  That was because my wife hates the CFL bulbs.  Now we can cut cost to the LED 10 watt PAR 30 or even 9 watt PAR 30 bulb.  I can tell you the bulbs last 25,000 hours vs less than 6,000 hours.   So you will probably need to change them in a long long long long time!

  1. It is amazing that LEDs can last tens of thousands more hours than CFLs! They are definitely the way to go if you are living a green lifestyle. Not to mention they can save you a ton of money in the long run! I have been working for Sharp for a short period of time, but I have always been impressed with the quality of their products. I recommend you check out their LEDs.

  2. Thanks Seth! The Light Show at the Jacob Javits in 2009 had hundreds of booths of light vendors. All showcased LEDs except for 2 or 3 CFL vendors who were looking quite dower and a small handful of incandescent vendors who had specialty shaped bulbs. While I love to CFLs for their bridging the gap and awareness raising qualities, these bulbs are the "8 track tapes" of the lighting industry.
