Energy Saving with LED Lights

Fact: It’s out again dark. While we have already overcome annual light rock bottom, no? Fall victim not the winter madness, quickly everywhere make for light. And even new life arises-especially in the electricity meter. So like it was? What type of lamp again how much light and need how much power for this? Otherwise what to observe?

The old standard for domestic lighting is still the immediately (which gradually disappears Yes according to EU regulation ).

It converts nicely as well as all consumed power in radiation. Unfortunately, we humans can see only five percent of them, the rest is heat. So effective is not everything. And long the light bulbs do not light Yes also: although slightly changed design a five to be up to six-time life, the pears from the supermarket up to 1000 hours, come before, due to construction, burn out. This is light for three hours a day after about a year.

The common alternative, especially in the area of work, is the fluorescent tube, which is also available in compact, screw socket compatible version as “Energy saving lamp”: up to five times as much light per watt as compared to the ‘old’ bulb and a service life of up to 20,000 hours at “classic” fluorescent tube, 6000 hours at the small energy-saving lamp make up for the higher purchase prices-in the face of longer life of these lamps, providing in any case pays off.

Halogen lamps, which are, if excellent color reproduction is desired, burn only about twice as long as incandescent lamps and need about 30 percent less energy.

The new and future-oriented lamps are the “light emitting diodes”, the LEDs. You have a high light yield and last practically forever. It assumes an average service life of 25,000 hours are proud 25 years at a daily burning time of three hours.

LED bulbs can replace almost all energy-saving according to Craftinlearning, halogen and incandescent bulbs-household lamp Sockets and in various ways (as standard, candles – or Teardrop). And they are extremely efficient: by 80 percent electricity consumption of lighting compared to standard incandescent can be reduced according to the Dutch lighting giant of Philips.Finally, a full 40% of energy be a LED lamp to light. Seen in this way, the today still comparatively expensive LED lamps to screw in the normal versions most definitely worthwhile both financially and environmentally.

In any case is light, just in multi-person households, still the largest guzzlers, then computer and hot water heaters. As a more focused shopping is anything other than nonsense so…
