If you're looking for a bright idea on how to save electricity and on saving, energy saving light bulbs are a great place to start. They are a real power saver which could help you save and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.
Unlike traditional light sources LED’s do not get hot, so very little energy is wasted as heat. LED’s also do not produce ultraviolet or infrared rays which are light waves which can not be seen by the human eye. What LED’s do is convert a higher percentage of energy into light within the visible spectrum which means that less power is required to produce the same amount of useful light.
The lifetime of an LED lamp is around 50,000 hours; that means that under normal use an LED bulb will not need replacing for 12 years. Using LED lamps means that replacement bulb costs are reduced, as well as man hours spent replacing the lamps. Most LED lamps consume between 1 and 3 Watts of energy. This means that the electricity cost to run an LED bulb is much lower than standard incandescent, compact fluorescent and halogen lamps. In some cases switching to LED lamps can yield a 95.4% saving on electricity charges.
Some materials used in the manufacture of other lighting sources, such as fluorescent lamps, require the use of harmful chemicals. Fluorescent lights contain mercury, which means that when the lamp comes to the end of its life it has to be disposed of in a landfill site. LED lamps contain no toxic materials which mean when they come to the end of their life they can be recycled, a better solution for the environment.
In the present day everybody should be responsible for helping to reduce carbon emissions and halt global climate change. In the UK over 50% of household carbon emissions are attributable to lighting. Changing to LED bulbs would make a very significant difference to the amount of energy consumed by UK homes and businesses.
