When choosing the lighting for a home, there are a number of different options available. One of these is fluorescent lighting. As with any type of lighting, it has its pros and cons, and understanding these will make it easier to choose whether this type of lighting is the right choice for your home.

Uses Less Electricity

As lighting a home can use up a significant portion, or up to one-fourth, of the electricity used each month, choosing a type of lighting that minimizes electrical use can save a lot of money. Even though it uses up to two-thirds less electricity, this type of lighting is still just as bright as regular lighting and often brighter than LED lights. However, they can take some time to fully light up and usually can't be used in light fixtures with dimmer switches.

Longer Lasting Bulbs

Regular lights get used up more when the lights are frequently turned on and off, so they don't last as long as fluorescent lights. Fluorescent bulbs aren't as affected by long periods of continuous use or turning lights on or off, which helps them last up to six times as long as regular bulbs.

More Expensive Bulbs

One of the few potential drawbacks of fluorescent lighting, however, is that these light bulbs can cost three times as much as other types of bulbs. Keep in mind that the lower electricity costs and longer life of the bulbs tends to mean people usually save money by going this route, even though the initial cost is a lot higher. They are still cheaper than LED bulbs, but LED bulbs last longer and use even less electricity, making them another good option.

Lights Flicker Sometimes

These lights may start to flicker as they get older, which is a sign that they need to be replaced. This flickering can be bothersome and may be a problem if people in the household suffer from epilepsy.

Don't Give Off Heat

Some types of bulbs give off heat while they are in use, which can affect the overall room temperature and cause problems with certain types of equipment. This isn't a problem with fluorescent lights.

Not Always Attractive

Sometimes fluorescent lights are considered a bit unattractive, but this problem can be remedied by purchasing some of the newer types of fixtures or fluorescent Wraps. For example, Sea Gull lighting sells some attractive energy saving ceiling fixtures that would be nice for kitchen lights. They are square and have a nice beveled wood trim in either an oak or a white color. These fixtures take two fluorescent bulbs. Progress lighting has some options as well, including rectangular under cabinet lights for the kitchen, as well as square or circular white fixtures that can be either ceiling or wall mounted.

Contain Mercury

Although there are a lot of advantages to fluorescent lights, the bulbs do contain mercury, so they shouldn't be disposed of in the regular trash. The mercury can be bad for both the environment and a person's health if the bulb should break.
