Electric light is one of the most energy consuming equipment’s used in households and industrial areas. But it is possible to save energy by using Energy Efficient Lighting equipment’s. The Energy Efficient Lighting Company manufactures energy efficient lightening equipment’s for both household and commercial purposes.
Industries need energy efficient equipment’s that provide high returns at low investment, houses want energy efficient equipment’s that help save electric energy and reduce electric bill. Two of the most commonly used Energy Efficient Lighting bulbs today are compact fluorescent lamps and LEDs. Both have wide popularity for Commercial Lighting in industries. .
People who are still using incandescent lamps should shift to compact fluorescent lamps. Compact fluorescent lamps give better performance while saving energy and money when compared to incandescent lamps.
A comparative study shows that CFL uses less than 2/3rd of the energy than a standard lamp, while giving the same bright light. When compared to other lamps, CFL will last more than 6 times longer. Again, there is a big difference in price. You will get a CFL lamp in the $3.5 to $18 price range. Where as an incandescent lamp will cost in the range of $20 to $35 per bulb. Though there is a huge price difference, the CFL bulbs have extended life time. There are many more reasons to opt for CFL. Experts state that a CFL has more than 10 year life span. For personal or household use CFL can be used in kitchen, bathrooms, work areas, night bed lamps and portico. One of the disadvantages of CFL is difficulty in disposing it. As it contains mercury it is not safe to dispose it near housing colonies or residential areas.
Another alternative is LED bulb. The bulbs that have multiple LED in it function like an incandescent lamp by giving same brightness. Use of LED can help in saving nearly 95% of electricity when compared to incandescent lamps.
In comparison with fluorescent lamps LED lamps can save almost 75% of energy. Again, it’s life span in more than any other lamps. Experts have the opinion that it has the ability to work for nearly 20 years. Maintenance cost related to LED lamps is also less.
Normal cost of an LED bulb ranges from $30 to $50 and it is available in two light shades – bright white light and warm white light. Cool light bulb can used in rooms where there is the need of bright light, while warm white light bulb can be used where musky light is necessary.
