Fluorescent lamps and fluorescent tubes are filled with mercury gas. When an electric current passes through, the gas atoms emit UV light which is then turned to visible light from the phosphor coating.
Fluorescent lighting is popular both in the home and in commercial and retail environments. Learn about the many advantages fluorescent lamps can provide you.
When compared to incandescent lighting, fluorescent lighting is 66% cheaper to operate while still maintaining the same light output
Fluorescent bulbs last longer - fluorescent lights last an average of six times longer than regular incandescent lights as they tend to burn less after continuous use
The lights do not give off heat, making them great for area lighting and for areas where additional heat can cause equipment to malfunction or bother the users
