Choosing the Right Energy-saving Light Bulbs Can Reduce Electricity Consumption
By choosing the right energy-saving bulbs, you can reduce electricity consumption and reduce bills.
Ⅰ. Important tips for energy-saving bulb lighting
1. The LED (light emitting diode) sphere generally consumes the least electricity;
2. No need for high wattage to get bright light;
3. If there are CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) bulbs in frequently used rooms, please replace them with LED energy-saving bulbs. Or, please wait for them to stop working, and then replace them with LED energy-saving bulbs.
Ⅱ. The choice of energy-saving bulbs
Light bulb technology is changing rapidly and there are many options that can be confusing. So, what kinds of bulbs are there to choose from? What should you pay attention to?
1. LED energy-saving bulbs: these lights use the least amount of electricity. They are more expensive than CFLs, but have a longer lifespan. They are suitable for most lighting situations and can be purchased in supermarkets, hardware stores and lighting stores.
2. Compact fluorescent lamps (CFL): These are miniature fluorescent tubes, usually in a swirling shape. They are reasonably priced and more energy efficient than halogen and incandescent bulbs. They contain small amounts of mercury, so be careful when throwing them away.
3. Halogen lamps: Starting from September 2020, Australia will ban the use of such incandescent bulbs.
4. Incandescent bulbs: These bulbs are heated until the glowing wire produces electric light. Most of them have been eliminated since 2009, but they are sold as specialty products.
