Regency Technologies supplies a variety of eco-friendly commercial lighting products to businesses seeking energy efficiency and savings. One of the most popular forms of energy-efficient lighting is fluorescent or CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) lighting. Traditional incandescent bulbs produce light by heating an inner metal filament with electrical currents. CFLs, on the other hand, use fluorescent gas to create ultraviolet light, which is then converted to visible light by a special coating on the surface of the bulb.
This alternative method of light production makes CFLs considerably more energy efficient than traditional incandescent lighting. This is because 90% of the energy used to power an incandescent bulb is converted to heat rather than light, compared to only 30% for CFLs. CFL bulbs emit less heat, unlike incandescent bulbs, which become very hot when used for long periods. This makes CFLs particularly efficient in warm climates because, not only do they require less energy to run, they also reduce workloads on air conditioners.
Regency Technologies offers fluorescent bulbs and energy consulting services for customers looking to run more energy-efficient and eco-friendly businesses.
