Energy Savings with LED Light Bulbs

Post  una on Wed Oct 05, 2011 2:58 am

Iíve long been a fan of LED bulb light,because of the energy savings. Normally,they are more expensive than incandescent light bulbs but they use less electricity. The two biggest complaints I have with bulbs is that their lifespan is significantly reduced if they are turned on and off too often and that there is mercury inside them, making disposal a little more of a hassle.
Those problems are addressed with LED bulbs. LED bulbs use less power than incandescent bulbs, last up to 100,000 hours.One interesting fact I learned was that LED bulbs rarely burn out, they simply fade over time. The lifetime measure is based on when the bulb loses 30% of its lumen depreciation. Another interesting fact is that LEDs donít have a filament, so they donít really ďburn out.Ē If you drop an incandescent bulb and break the filament, itís done.
