I was reading an article about Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs and was suprised to learn that turning a CFL on and off frequently can cause the light to burn out early. You should not turn the light off every time you leave the room. The EPA recommends leaving them on for at least 15 minutes at a time. i guess I can quit following my children around and turning off lights...fussing...turning off lights...fussing...turning off never ends!

CFL's work best when air can circulate around them and disperse heat. For recessed fixtures, use a bulb labeled as a suitable for a recessed can. You can visit this site for help choosing the right light.

Incandescent bulbs will be phased out between 2012 and 2014.
