Energy efficiency with LED lightingPublished Date: April 13, 2020 |
The first strive for energy efficiency left the laboratories and entered the homes of people with the mass acceptance of compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs. And now it is time to take the next leap with the help of LED lighting bulbs.
It has been less than a decade that CFL bulbs filled the commercial advertisement domain in its successful attempt to introduce the new generation of energy efficient lighting. And by that same logic the rising prominence and popularity of LED bulbs is eminent.
LED by its very nature of being an upgrade offers everything better than that of CFL lighting. However, the most important of all is not just the reduced electricity bill that one will relish. It is the mercury-free and environmental friendly make of LED which accounts for most of the praise it that it continues to receive in the market.
Mercury is a major component in CFL. Even incandescent light bulbs never had this element in their composition. One has to wonder if safety was partly compromised to invent CFL in order to have that 70% less energy consumption against incandescent lighting. For those of you who are wondering what the real threat of mercury is, the element is highly poisonous to humans and any life forms who are even exposed to mercury fumes. So the next time your CFL light bulb breaks, stay clear of it!
Being mercury-free is not just the only reason why LED has been declared environmental friendly. The bulbs have about 60 percent less carbon emissions than CFL. Incandescent bulbs don’t even come close given its 10 times more emission rate than LED.
What is even more interesting is the emergence of “smart LED” bulbs. The most prominent amongst them is Philips who came out with its Hue smart bulb last year. The bulbs come with sensors which respond when connect to smartphones and tablet via an internet connection. Not only does this development pave path for convenience but also for safety and efficiency. People can now control their light bulbs from anywhere on the planet as long as they are connected to the world-wide-web.
