Go green and save power

GO GREEN and save power- say goodbye to CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps, now use LED (light emitting diodes) lamps.

In saving power, Delhi is leading the nation, citizens are using energy efficient lighting. After being high on CFL-powered energy efficiency, city is now turning attention toward LED (light emitting diodes) which are far more energy efficient than CFLs and contain no toxic like CFLs which have heavy metals mercury. One of the issues involved in switching from CFLs to a more energy-efficient model is the upfront cost.

Think of making the switch over the LED bulbs. LED is as green as it gets when it comes to energy efficient lighting products. Simply changing over to LED tube lights of any style can help lower your lighting energy bill up to 50 per cent to 60 per cent per month.

LED lamps have come a long way, now able to replace 75 to 100 watt incandescent bulbs with equivalent light output and only consuming 3 to 13 watts, the choice to switch to LED home light bulbs has never been easier. The most notable advantages of LED light bulbs over conventional light bulbs are LED lamps last upwards of 50,000 hours, so if you buy a LED light bulb today and leave it on for eight hours a day you will not have to change for over 10 years, overall extremely long life span.

These lights can be used in traffic signals, crosswalk signs and even holiday displays, parking garages, parking lots, outdoor parks and on streets. Regardless of which brand of CFL you choose, it is important to remember that each bulb contains a trace amount of mercury. This means that, unlike incandescents, they need to be recycled when the bulb burns out. LED lamps are eco-friendlier and wholly recyclable because it contains no mercury and you can throw it in the dust bin.
