9w / 40w Equivalent A-lamp A15 Soft White 2 Pack

Electric lighting consumes up to 25% of the average home energy budget. CFL bulbs use about 50-80% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs making them an efficient way to replace old bulbs and start saving money on your power bill. Although initially more expensive, you save money in the long run because these energy-saving light bulbs use 1/3 the energy and last up to 10 times as long as incandescence. A 22 Watt CFL has about the same light output as a 100 Watt incandescent. At 8 cents per kWh, a single 18 Watt CFL used in place of a 75 Watt incandescent will save about $45.

Benefits of Using Compact Fluorescent Lamps

Efficiency and Savings

Electric lighting consumes up to 25% of the average home energy budget. CFL bulbs use about 50-80% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs making them an efficient way to replace old bulbs and start saving money on your power bill. Although initially more expensive, you save money in the long run because these energy-saving light bulbs use 1/3 the energy and last up to 10 times as long as incandescence. A 22 Watt CFL has about the same light output as a 100 Watt incandescent. At 8 cents per kWh, a single 18 Watt CFL used in place of a 75 Watt incandescent will save about $45.

Pollution Reduction

By replacing a single incandescent bulb with a CFL you can keep a half-ton of CO2 out of the atmosphere over the life of the bulb. If everyone in the U.S. used energy-efficient lighting, we could retire 90 average size power plants.

High-Quality Light

Unlike older generation CFL bulbs that just emit a cool almost blue color light, newer compact fluorescent light bulbs are capable of a much wider range of color temperatures. They use rare earth phosphors for excellent color and warmth. Color temperatures vary from warmer whites designed to resemble incandescence and halogens to cooler whites well suited for task and office lighting. You can even find 6500K bulbs that can be used as grow light bulbs. Plus, thanks to new electronic ballasts, CFLs don’t flicker or hum like they used to.

Versatility

Compact fluorescent light bulbs can be used nearly anywhere that incandescent lamps and halogen flood lights are used. Most CFLs are non-dimmable, but dimmable CFLs are also available for lights using a dimmer.

Why You Shouldn’t Use Fluorescent Bulbs with Photo Cells or Timers

Fluorescent lamps are not recommended for use with photo cells or timers. Pairing the bulbs with a photo cell or timer could shorten the life of the lights significantly because most of these electrical devices are not compatible with fluorescence. Most photo cells supply a small amount of power as the sun starts to set and only provides full power at full dark.

A fluorescent ballast requires full power at startup which is what causes the fluorescence to fail early when on these systems. There is also the issue that photo cells and timers are typically used with outdoor lighting which fluorescent lights are not well suited for due to cold temperatures having a negative effect on the light source’s warm up time and light output. If the lights are used indoors and paired with a compatible device, they should function well as long as they are not subjected to frequent on/off cycles.

To all customers

We have spent over 9 years now working hard on ways to control costs and not have to increase pricing on our paint products and in many cases we were considering it, but luckily never had to. But unfortunately, just like the entire coatings and other industries we are running out of ways and running way low on everything to make our safe and natural products. A swell, all of our raw material costs have been going up and up since January of 2021, we have seen increase of 30 to 100 percent and no end in sight. As well when you order the raw materials you are getting long lead times as everything seems to be on back order or out of stock now. We do have more raw materials on order, but again our suppliers are either out of stock or have very limited on hand stock and everything seems to be on back order.
All of this has also pushed us to the point we have no other alternatives than to increase the prices or close our doors.
With all this said, we have also been hit with high demands on our products which have depleted our entire stock. So there could be slight delays from time to time until all this clears up and gets back to normal. We wish we had better news, but everyone is having the same issues right now and many were increasing their prices months ago. We have waited as long as possible. Please note that we may have to increase the prices even more if this all continues. But if an order is placed, your order pricing will be honored which is more than I can say about our raw materials suppliers have been.
Last, any orders placed during a waiting period for the raw materials, will be filled in the order they were submitted/received. We will also let everyone who has ordered any product know if there is any status changes as well as when we will be able to go into production.

Sincerely
The entire staff of Go Green World Products LLC
