Energy Saving Light Bulbs

The correct name for energy saving light bulbs in this category is Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) and as they save energy rather than specifically being ‘low energy’, we prefer to make this distinction.

Energy saving light bulbs are designed to replace traditional incandescent light bulbs which are moving to obsolescence and will give a lifespan which is 8 – 15 times longer than a conventional incandescent light bulb and these replacement energy saving light bulbs will fit into light fittings that have previously used incandescent bulbs meaning that there is no need to change your lighting if all you want to just reduce the running cost of your lights.

With older style energy saving bulbs, they could take up to a minute to reach their full light output however new generation energy saving bulbs, no longer do you need to wait for them to heat up before they give out the light you expect. You have instant and often better quality light (now measured in Lumens rather than Watts) at your fingertips.

PAGAZZI has compiled a blog post that explains this change more clearly.

There is an excellent explanation on this type of bulb on Wikipidia and technically, the article gives a great explanation of the benefits and the reasons why change is beneficial. For some time now, PAGAZZI has been encouraging their customers to switch to energy saving bulbs as a lower cost alternative to the really efficient but more expensive low energy, LED or eco-halogen options available.

We want you to be better informed about the running cost of your lights

Energy saving bulbs differ from low energy bulbs (typically Eco-halogen and LED bulbs) in as much as:

1) They use more power than low energy bulbs and

2) They emit a different style of light

Low energy bulbs will give out the same (and often better) light than energy saving bulbs and are significantly less expensive to run albeit they are more expensive to buy initially but the cost savings over the years is significant making them a far more attractive option over time. We'd rather encourage you to go for the more efficient and 'cheaper to run' bulbs but if you still prefer to use the incandescent bulb as your choice, what we have in this range is available here.
