    When we signed up for the KCPL 'Cool Homes' program (recently upgraded the 20 year old HVAC system to a much more environmentally friendly version), they actually sent us some bulbs for free. Hadn't really looked at them before, but they've definitely sold us on the idea...just as bright at a fraction of the wattage.

    I like using these bulbs for the simple fact that I don't have to bother changing them in a long time. Very ideal for hard to reach places.

    What about the mercury contamination when they are disposed of. Most consumer will just throw them in the trash instead of following the proper disposal methods. These CFLs are helping to poison the planet!!!

    Bob, that's an excellent point! Check out my latest article at "Handle CFLs carefully to realize savings," which describes proper handling of CFLs if they are broken, and the appropriate disposal method.
