Changing of The Bulb

We changed 214 bulbs in our wall sconce room from 15 watt incandescent to 5 watt color rendering fluorescent.

Have a look...

In addition to the fluorescent actually being brighter, it also expels less heat and lasts 10 times longer, but look at the energy difference.

Fluorescent - 214 times 5 watts is 1070 total watts

Incandescent - 214 times 15 watts is 3210 watts

Small tip: If you want good quality, buy it with a Kelvin temperature of less than 3000 degrees, so it looks like incandescent.
