Compact fluorescent light bulbs have become one of the most popular energy saving bulbs on the market. They are designed to produce light within specific color ranges or color temperatures which typically affect how light appears indoors. The two popular color temperatures for the compact fluorescent light bulbs are daylight and sunshine. Daylight CFL light bulbs, are some of the best innovations to hit the lighting market.
For various purposes, daylight CFL bulbs give off an extremely bright light. The typical color temperature is 5,500 degrees Kelvin, but some daylight rated bulbs may have color temperature of up to 6,500 K. Generally, the light they produce is nearer the blue end of the spectrum, and closely resembles sun’s light on an average day. The 5500-6400k spectrum gives off a clear, bright white light. This is a great feature that makes daylight CFL bulbs handy for lighting areas where natural light is limited.
Most daylight CFL light bulbs have the word “daylight” printed on the package along with the specific color temperature they emit. Dimmable daylight CFL bulbs are also available and are ideal for applications in sconces and general-lighting purposes that utilize a dimmer.
The type of coating used in CFL produces different color temperatures. Some daylight light CFL bulbs possess a special neodymium coating. These bulbs more closely resemble traditional incandescent bulbs and are available in a wide range of wattages. The best in market produce brightness of 850 lumens and the outcome is often a more pleasant, natural-like indoor light source. In addition, daylight CFL bulbs go on instantly, flicker-free and can last up to 12 times longer than standard incandescent bulbs.
The CFL daylight light bulbs utilize light a lot more efficiently than traditional incandescent lamps by producing less heat and less wasted energy. They produce the same quality of light using less energy as higher wattages of traditional bulbs. On average, CFL day light bulbs use about 75% less energy, saving in costs in excess of the bulb’s lifetime.
The familiar spiral-shaped design and the energy saving potential of CFL daylight bulbs make them ideal for a wide range of applications. For areas such as living rooms, these valuable CFL bulbs create more comfortable living environments and save people a lot of money in the long run. If used outdoors, these bulbs usually work best inside fixtures that provide some protection from exterior elements.
Sometimes they are used in photo studios as an alternative to the pricey powered flash units. Artists and crafters also enjoy the outwardly brighter intensity of daylight illumination produced by these CFL bulbs to see more clearly on their projects. However, the CFL daylight bulbs contain a small amount of mercury gas in the tube, so they need proper disposal to reduce effects on environment.
Even with the rising cost of energy, switching to CFLs is a simple way to see direct financial savings. The latest development in the technology of compact fluorescent light is a daylight rated bulb. These daylight CFL bulbs bring superior indoor lighting solutions and substantially save energy.
