New light bulbs: what’s the difference? Traditional incandescent bulbs use a lot of energy to produce light and over 90% of the energy is wasted as heat. Whereas, the energy-efficient light bulbs use about 20%-80% less energy than the traditional incandescent, saving a lot of money.
Although, both CFLs and LEDs use considerably less electricity than the traditional bulbs. However, long-lasting and more efficient light bulbs pay off over time. CFLs are comparatively cheaper than the LEDs, therefore, one can choose according to the set budget.
CFL vs LED light bulbs: which is better? Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are a version of the long tube fluorescent lights. They use less electricity than the traditional light bulbs. Moreover, an ENERGY STAR-rated CFL uses about one-fourth of the energy and lasts longer than a traditional incandescent that puts out the same amount of light. It contains mercury, which is a toxic heavy metal, which is harmful to both health and the environment.
