I will easily admit that I don’t love CFLs. I can’t seem to find one that emits the proper light for me. Whether this is because I need to purchase different bulbs, or I need to change my expectations, I’m still not certain.
I want to love them. I really do. Save money on energy? Check. Reduce my carbon footprint? Check. Have a cooler house in the Arizona summer (because they don’t give off heat)? Check. Sign me up!
When I find the perfect bulb (with or without the help of George Clooney) I will certainly blog about it, don’t you worry!
In the meantime, this is an extremely enlightening* article from the Philadelphia Inquirer about CFLs. The best part is that it goes into much detail about the environmental concerns regarding disposal of CFLs.
* Pun unintentional, but appreciated.
