Should You Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Lights?

With technology comes upgrades and the latest invention. The lighting industry is no exception. It is continuously developing new products with the goal of energy reduction while being able to meet the standard for illumination.

 

Led Light Bulbs


Halogen lamps continue to replace incandescent lights as well as parabolic aluminum reflector to save in costs and energy. In addition, LED lights also have a longer life compared to incandescent bulbs and are considered a good option to replace incandescent lamp or light.

The Advantage of Upgrading to Energy-Efficient Lights

The advantage of the latest line of energy efficient lights is their capacity to produce the same amount of light with less power consumption. This means a 15-watt CFL or 11-watt LED can produce the same amount of light as that of a 65-watt incandescent bulb. With less power consumption, and reduced maintenance expenses. LEDs and CFLs have grown in popularity in recent years.

With more LEDs and CFLs coming out in the market, you may want to know how many lumens are in a watt. There is a difference between lumens and watts. Lumens measure brightness whereas watts measure energy output. There is no straightforward way to convert wattage to lumens. To determine the lumens of a 60w incandescent bulb would be based on the lumens output instead of the energy used.

Other benefits of using energy-efficient lights include aesthetic reasons. The new type of lights can help improve the appearance of spaces in older buildings. In a way, the latest energy-efficient lights can make your room or space look new once again.

Replacing Magnetic Ballasts with Electronic Ballasts is Key to Energy Saving

With many improvements in the industry of light technology, governments are motivated to push the light industry to produce more efficient light products and introduce to the market. Now that electronic ballasts have replaced magnetic ballasts, this brings a significant amount of energy savings as well as environmental benefits. Another option to save energy is to retrofit fixtures to T8 lamps and electronic ballasts.

Criteria to use when upgrading

When choosing a method of upgrade to save with energy, remember there are many options of new technologies. The factors or criteria that needs to be thought about are the efficiency improvements which is measured by lumens per watt, efficiency, environment-friendly, and the longevity of the products.

If one opts to use LED fixtures, it is possible that the entire LED fixture will be replaced when the time comes to replace the LED lamp. On the other hand, light fixtures that have replaceable light engines can endure longer.

LEDs and CFLs are the results of the improvements in technology. This advancement aims to make the performance of lighting better for the consumers. This means more output with less energy usage.
