Over the years, consumers have adopted CFLs (compact fluorescent lamp) because they use about two-thirds the amount of energy of standard incandescent bulbs and can last up to 10 times longer. They also produce less heat, so they’re safer to operate and can cut home cooling costs. UL’s new CFLs safety study reveals that consumers can use CFLs more broadly and safely in a variety of lighting applications. To help consumers safely light up their homes with CFLs, UL offers the following safety guidelines.

According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, households can save 20%-30% on energy bills by implementing simple cost effective home improvements. Which, over time will save more money on your energy bills than it will cost to have these improvements done on your home.
