Who is building or renovating a property knows the need to think about alternative consumption when it comes to electricity.You need to cut down on consumption, both to be sustainable and to save on the end-of-the-month bill.And home lighting plays an important role in achieving these goals.The point is that a lot of people wonder what is the best choice for this purpose:LED or fluorescent lamp?
In this post, we will show you the pros and cons of each option so that you can make the best choice for your need.Come on?
Just think of the word lamp to think of the rounded glass shape with the spring-like central filament and the thread to fit into the socket.Until a few years ago, most homes were lit up with these models, the famous incandescent bulbs.
But modernity has come with options that help illuminate the environment by spending far less.While an incandescent transforms only 5% to 10% of the energy spent in light, fluorescents reach 85%.Already the LEDs, 40%.
This means that these new models waste less energy to produce light.And when we think in the medium and long term, this difference helps reduce electricity use and, consequently, save money.That way, everyone wins.
LED and Fluorescent Lamp
It is logical that every choice has both positive and negative aspects.So the more information, the better your decision will be.And one of the facts is that by opting for the LED or fluorescent lamp, the initial investment will be higher than it would be on the old incandescents.But the compensation lies in the durability of both, which often exceed the filament models.
A fact that weighs in favor of LED and fluorescent models is consumption.For example: you want to reproduce the 60-watt incandescent illumination (unit of measurement of electrical energy).To do this, you need a compact fluorescent version of 15 watts (¼ of the consumption) or only 7 watts in the LED version – a saving of almost 90%.
A fairly widespread myth about LED bulbs and fluorescents: the use of dimmers (controls of light intensity).If you use or will use them, it is worth remembering that only the standard model of both is not dimerizable.There are versions that allow the use of the device without problems.
Another myth is that LED bulbs are weaker than fluorescent ones.In fact, one needs to pay attention to two factors: watt equivalence and color (a variation between cold white and warm white).
Choosing correctly between LED or fluorescent lamp, the lighting is exactly the same.In fact, in comparison, even though LEDs are more expensive, it has a much longer life and consumption up to 50% lower.
Now that you have understood the differences, the pros and cons of each product, how about helping other people learn about the benefits of this investment in home lighting?Share this post on your social networks!
