You’ve started to replace your energy guzzling incandescent bulbs with energy-saving compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, but now there’s a greener contender for the throne.
Induction bulbs might be a little larger than your conventional CFL, but they last about five times longer, which means you only need to change your bulb once every 15 years (depending on usage).

Light affects a person’s moods and even health. Our body is regulated by light, by its intensity and the length of the night/day cycle known as the circadian rhythm. All types of light affect our cognitive activity as well as our mood, telling our body when it is day, time to wake up and work and when it is night, time to rest. Each of us has an internal clock which casts different types of shadow and shade in the mind, according to the position of the sun, transforming light stimuli into hormonal messages and in turn into responses.
Buildings and objects always look their best in natural light. Over the years, artificial lighting has been making headway from primarily serving as a source of illumination to becoming a critical building design tool. Building illumination has now evolved from basic lighting to become an integral component of a building’s aesthetics. But the increasingly challenging demands of modern architectural designs have also witnessed a corresponding increase in energy consumption for lighting.
