About 25% of the energy consumed in a home is used for lighting. Thanks to advances in the field of energy, LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs and energy-saving light bulbs more than meet the needs of any home, providing advantages in saving energy.
Consumption with the illumination of aLED bulb (หลอด ไฟ led, which is the term in Thai), is characterized in that it lasts a long time and consumes very little. It is estimated that they last approximately 70,000 hours so that they can last up to 50 years.
Energy-Saving Light Bulb Vs LED
The big difference between LED bulbs and energy-saving bulbs is that LEDs do not contain any toxic elements and reach 100% of their performance from the moment we turn them on, making them more efficient in the long run. Low consumption light bulbs have to be recycled with hazardous waste treatment, something that is unknown to a large number of the population.
Also, due to its operation, it involves a very high reduction in heat emission, since LED bulbs transform up to 98% of their energy into light and only 2% into heat.
Energy-Saving Light Bulbs
This type of light bulbs (compact fluorescent lamps) work in a similar way to the fluorescent tubes of all life, but with the difference that, apart from their low consumption, they are cold, they use between 50% and 80% less, and they last longer (although they are a little more expensive).
The Main Drawback Of Energy-Saving Light Bulbs
It contains gas with a small portion of mercury, which ranges from 3 mg to 6 mg, which makes it hazardous waste, so they must be delivered to particular points for recycling. Without a doubt, the best option despite being somewhat expensive is to opt for LED bulbs since they are more efficient and less polluting.
