Replacement LED Light Bulbs
The replacement led light bulbs are an important factor in saving energy and thus money. This is true now and in the future. It is virtually a certainty that energy costs are going to continue to increase over the years to come. The rate of increase is not predictable. A large portion of the fuel we use comes from fossil fuels. It is a finite resource so the faster we consume it the faster the price will increase. Clearly the simplest thing we can do to cut energy costs is to reduce our consumption. There are a variety of ways we can do this. We can buy appliances that consume less energy. We can set the thermostat to a less comfortable temperature.
The most effective way to cut energy consumption without impacting comfort and convenience is to change the type of light bulbs we use.
About 9 percent of the energy we consume is for providing light. The incandescent light bulb which most of us have traditionally used in our homes uses a lot of energy. Most of the energy it uses goes into heat and the remaining 10 percent goes into producing light. This fact means that during the summer time this source of light is increasing our cooling costs as well.
A more recent innovation is the compact fluorescent light bulb. They are much more efficient, using about a quarter the amount of energy that the incandescent bulb does. Unfortunately, there are a few significant drawbacks to these bulbs. First of all they contain mercury which is dangerous to those in the room if it should be broken. Clean-up is tricky and somewhat difficult. When they burn out it is important to take them to a designated depot for safe disposal. Still another problem with these bulbs is they produce EMF. Some people are very sensitive to EMF (Electro Magnetic Fields) to the point where they can become quite ill.
Absolutely the best development in illumination to date is the replacement led light bulbs. They are expensive to purchase but the benefits outweigh all other alternatives. They last between 40 and 50 thousand hours (longer by far than any other bulb) and use a tenth the energy to operate compared to the incandescent bulb. They have no negative environmental impact. They give off no EMF or Ultra-violet rays.
They provide a more natural full spectrum light. Over the long term they are the most cost effective bulb. Although the LED bulb is more expensive to buy, in the long run it can save you a significant amount of money. They are by far the longest lasting bulb, they are by far the cheapest bulb to opporate. Many electricity providers are switching to Smart Metering to determine the cost of the energy we use. This generally means that the cost of electricity is highest when we need electric lighting. The increasing cost of electricity makes it important to switch to the energy efficient LED bulbs now.
The Pharox replacement LED light bulbs are the most popular LED lighting option available for led room lighting. It has the Edison style base that can be screwed directly into an existing light socket.
- It provides a natural white light
- For the same light as an incandescent it will take one tenth the energy
- It will last up to 50 thousand hours
- It generates very little heat.
To order these amazing bulbs
These Pharox led bulbs are considered to be the best alternative to the incandescent bulb available yet. The light is very pleasant and you can just screw it into the regular light socket.
