Why Choose Fluorescent Lighting?
There are plenty of light bulb options available, so what makes fluorescent lights the right fit?
While most bulbs come in a range of styles, fluorescents are most known for their elongated design that offers plenty of light coverage. This makes them popular for commercial spaces, offices and homes that need a bright and evenly lit atmosphere.
While incandescent bulbs emit a lot of heat, fluorescents stay cool to the touch, even after hours of use. This heat-free option offers a safe alternative in spaces where your light fixture may be close to children, pets or heat-sensitive equipment and products.
Fluorescent bulbs also offer a more efficient alternative to traditional incandescent bulbs. They can produce the same number of lumens for fewer watts, giving you the brightness you need while conserving energy. Fluorescents also have a longer lifespan, saving you time and money on replacement bulbs.
