Disposing of fluorescent light bulbs

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

More and more, people are switching from incandescent to fluorescent light bulbs in an effort to be more energy efficient. There’s even an international campaign to stop use of incandescent bulbs.

But do you know the proper way to dispose of them? Don’t feel bad, because most people don’t, and they end up in the garbage. If they break in transit, the garbage collectors are exposed to the mercury inside, not to mention when the bulbs enter our landfills. Even though the smaller spiral shaped fluorescent bulbs for lamps contain less mercury than the standard long cylinders, they can still be hazardous to our health if not disposed of properly at certified waste recycling centers.

General Electric is looking into a national solution to the problem, and plans to meet with legislators as they know it will become a crucial issue with the significant increase in use of fluorescent bulbs.

LED lights on the other hand contain no mercury and are much more energy efficient than either incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. They do cost more initially, but pay for themselves in the long run and have no disposal issues

Today, “home theater ” implies a real “cinema experience” and therefore a higher quality set of components than the average television provides. A typical home theater includes the following parts:

Input Devices: One or more audio/video sources. High quality formats such as HD DVD or Blu-ray are preferred, though they often include a VHS player or Video Game Systems. Some home theatres now include a home theater PC to act as a library for video and music content.

Processing Devices: Input devices are processed by either a standalone AV receiver or a Preamplifier and Sound Processor for complex surround sound formats. The user selects the input at this point before it is forwarded to the output. Audio Output: Systems consist of at least 2 speakers, but can have up to 11 with additional subwoofer. Video Output: A large HDTV display. Options include Liquid crystal display television (LCD), video projector, plasma TV, rear-projection TV, or a traditional CRT TV.

Atmosphere: Comfortable seating and organization to improve the cinema feel. Higher end home theaters commonly also have sound insulation to prevent noise from escaping the room, and a specialized wall treatment to balance the sound within the room
