Energy Efficient Light Bulbs
Transcript of Energy Efficient Light Bulbs
Benefits of Energy Saving Light Bulbs
CFLs consume an average of 75% less electricity than regular bulbs therefore reducing the demand in electricity and resulting greenhouse gas emissions
Switching to energy efficient light bulbs represents an opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint as well as significantly reducing your electricity bill
CFLs and LEDs require minimal maintenance and also have a longer lifespan
A Brief History of the Energy Efficient Light Bulb
The two most common energy efficient light bulbs are Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb (CFL)
Nick Holonyak, Jr. invented the first LED light bulb in 1962
The first compact CFL was invented in 1976 by Edward Hammer while he was working at General Electric.
The Different Types of Energy Efficient Light Bulbs
Not everything is
Energy efficient light bulbs are typically more expensive than regular incandescent light bulbs
Compact fluorescent light bulbs contain a small amount of mercury enough to present a health hazard if the bulb breaks
CFLs require a 1 to 3 minute warm up period before they reach their full brightness
The different types of energy saving light bulbs are: halogen incandescent, compact fluorescent (CFLs) and light emitting diodes (LED's)
A halogen incandescent light bulb is 30% more energy efficient than a regular bulb
CFLs are 13 times more brighter, and 75% more energy efficient than regular bulbs
LEDs use 80% less energy and they last much longer than regular bulbs
Rebates for Energy Efficient Light Bulbs
Companies such as Hydro One provide rebates of $1-10 on ENERGY STAR certified LED and CFL light bulbs
Ontario Power Authority offers up to $10 per coupon for ENERGY STAR qualified LEDs and CFLs
In conclusion energy efficient light bulbs are better than traditional incandescent bulbs because they consume less energy. As global warming is having an effect on the planet, we need to use less energy to reduce carbon footprint. Energy efficient light bulbs are less harmful for the environment as well as being light on your wallet.
What are Energy Efficient Light Bulbs?
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and Compact Fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) have revolutionized energy efficient lighting
CFLs are the most prevalent energy efficient light bulb currently available
LEDs are compact and very efficient solid light bulbs
They are the two most common energy efficient light bulbs
