Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs

Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) consist of a fluorescent tube that is more compact in structure than conventional fluorescent lighting. They are a popular choice in many applications,including household fixtures, retail stores, warehouses, distribution centers, gymnasiums, and food processing and manufacturing facilities.

Compared to incandescent options, they offer notable costs-savings as a result of their longevity, reduced heat output, and electrical efficiency. They provide an average of 6000 to 8000 life hours, which is a significant improvement over the 2000 hours offered by conventional bulbs.

Recent updates to this type of lighting have contributed to their improved versatility. Originally designed in spiral, twin tube, triple tube, and quad tubes with varied base styles, compact fluorescents are now available in many other sizes and shapes.

They include the familiar A-lamp which can be screwed into most household fixtures and lamps. We also carry reflector bulbs such as R30, R40, and PAR lamps for high-hat, recessed, track and flood light fixtures.

We can provide CFL bulbs for chandeliers, lighted mirrors, and other types of fixtures. Dimmable options are available.
