Energy Choices: Best CLF Manufacturer

Sylvania CFLs

Sylvania CFLs

During a recent training session for Mr/My Handyman technicians, we were reviewing our green checklist, and specifically those quick projects that offer great savings to our customers. CFL lightbulbs are at the top of the list along with programmable thermostats, and the technicians consistently said that Sylvania’s products are the best.

Another technician who has them throughout his home, said they brighten quickly where other bulbs take a few seconds. Another technician who’s toured one of the Sylvania manufacturing plants, said their focus on quality control is excellent.

Technicians were also quick to point out some of the concerns related to the use of CFLs. These included:

  • Disposal of CFL bulbs is key as they contain mercury. Want to learn more, read EPAs Q&As
  • A related concern was expressed that CFLs should not be used where children might knock a lamp over, which would let the mercury escape.
