For many home and business owners, Fluorescent light bulbs are still a preferred choice when it comes to lighting systems. Fluorescent Man Lighting in Calgary installs lighting systems that use fluorescent light bulbs, which are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs and have longer life spans. Fluorescent lighting systems work in various environments - some are manufactured for outdoor and cold weather conditions and others are made for indoor industrial facilities. They aren’t just limited to businesses; compact fluorescent lamps have become very popular in homes as well. Fluorescent light bulbs produce a variety of white light, and this versatility allows for consumers to create lighting designs specific to their business or home. Fluorescent lighting has evolved in the last decade, and Fluorescent Man Lighting in Calgary, has the following guide to help you choose which type of fluorescent lighting you need.

Fluorescent lamps are illuminated when ultraviolet light (produced in the bulb via electricity) transforms the phosphorescent coating into visible light. There are two main types of fluorescent light bulb, the familiar long tubes and the compact fluorescent lamps, which are smaller and resemble the incandescent lighting system.

Cold White Fluorescent Tubes

  • Typically 4-8 feet long tubes
  • Popular in offices
  • Used in hospital and industrial facilities
  • Produce bright light
     

Warm White Fluorescent Tubes

  • Produces light in the orange range of the colour spectrum
  • High intensity light
  • Energy efficient
  • Illumination is easy on the eyes (compared to cold white)
     

Compact Fluorescent Lamps (soft white)

  • Commonly used for homes
  • Have begun to replace incandescent bulbs
  • Extremely efficient compared to incandescent
  • Use 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs
     

Plant Lights

  • Designed for areas of homes or businesses that don’t receive enough sunlight
  • Produces light at a frequency optimal for plant growth
  • Illuminated light covers a wide range of the colour spectrum (blue, green, red, orange)
     

In addition to the lighting types mentioned above, fluorescent lights can glow in various colours (white, red, blue, green, orange, yellow), all of which can accommodate any home or facility needs. Black light fluorescent bulbs, which cause certain colours to glow in the dark, are also popular in several industries.

Don’t count out fluorescent light bulbs just yet! They accommodate a wide range of lighting needs from homes and offices to outdoor facilities. Their life span can be 10-20 times that of incandescent bulbs, which leaves more money in your pocket.
