Advantages of Linear Fluorescent Lamps:

Linear fluorescent lighting offers long life and quality energy efficient lighting in a broad range of colors and sizes to fulfill any need. Whether you want to create a comfortable, pleasant atmosphere in your kitchen or bath, or bring the outdoors in with a bright white light similar to natural outdoor light for any room in the home, Planet Bulb has the line of fluorescent bulbs to meet your needs.

Most fluorescent bulbs are straight (linear) but some fixtures use circular (Circline) bulbs, while other fixtures use a U-shaped (U-bent) design. There are also specialty fluorescent bulbs for example, plant and aquarium fluorescents are ideal for growing indoor plants and are a popular choice for freshwater aquariums.  In addition, blacklight fluorescents are the ideal bulb for special effect lighting.

Linear Fluorescent Lamp Color Technology

Fluorescent bulbs are available in many colors, or color temperatures, which create different light moods. Color temperature is a measure of the light bulb’s color when illuminated, and is measured in degrees Kelvin. The higher the number, the whiter, and then bluer, or cooler the color. The lower the number, the more yellow, or warmer the color. The color of the light itself creates a mood in the lighted space.
