What's the difference between "long life" incandescent light bulbs and ENERGY STAR qualified Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL)? Follow

While a "long life" bulb does last longer than a standard incandescent bulb, it still uses a lot of energy and it doesn't last as long as a Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL). A long life 60-watt incandescent bulb usually lasts for 2,000 hours, but an equivalent 13-watt ENERGY STAR qualified CFL will last 6,000 hours or more, and use 75% less energy. ENERGY STAR qualified CFLs help you save money in energy and household costs and you won't have to buy and change bulbs as often.
