Is it better to use energy-saving lamps or LED lamps? Consumers who have doubts about this problem generally do not have enough knowledge about energy-saving lamps and LED lamps. To solve this problem, first of all, we must first understand the characteristics of energy-saving lamps and LED lamps.
What is an energy-saving lamp? What are the characteristics of energy-saving lamps?
Energy-saving lamps, also known as energy-saving bulbs, electronic bulbs, compact fluorescent lamps and integrated fluorescent lamps, etc., refer to the combination of fluorescent lamps and ballasts (ballasts) into a whole lighting equipment.
Energy-saving lamps have two major features: First, wide operating voltage: 170V-250V is suitable for China's power supply needs, long life, average life ≥8000 hours. No noise, no strobe, no interference to communication and household appliances. It saves 80% of electricity compared with ordinary incandescent bulbs; the second is the use of high-quality pure three-color phosphor tube, high light efficiency, low light decay, natural light, low power consumption, low heat, color temperature 2700K, 6400K, is the best lighting source select. It is precisely these two characteristics that make energy-saving lamps quickly accepted and trusted by users. However, energy-saving lamps have a fatal flaw, that is, the impact of waste energy-saving lamps on the environment is very serious. According to my understanding, in 2012, hundreds of millions of energy-saving lamps were scrapped in energy-saving promotion projects. If tons of water and soil are counted, then the pollution of hundreds of millions of energy-saving lamps will be a serious environmental problem. Therefore, if the recycling and disposal of waste energy-saving lamps are not properly done, it will be a disaster.
After talking about energy-saving lamps, let's talk about LED lamps
What is an LED light? What are the characteristics of LED lights?
LED is the abbreviation of English light emitting diode (light emitting diode). Its basic structure is a chip of electroluminescent semiconductor material, which is cured on the bracket with silver glue or white glue, and then the chip and the circuit board are connected with silver wire or gold wire , And then sealed with epoxy resin around to protect the internal core wire, and finally install the shell, so the LED lamp has good seismic performance.
There are also many characteristics of LED, I will introduce some common characteristics for you
1. Energy saving: the energy consumption of white LED is only 1/10 of incandescent lamp, 1/4 of energy saving lamp;
2. Longevity: The life span can reach more than 100,000 hours, compared with about 8000 hours of energy-saving lamps, the difference is not a little bit. For ordinary home lighting, choosing LED lamps can be described as "once and forever";
3. Environmental protection: LED lights have no possibility of polluting the environment, which has a major advantage over energy-saving lamps;
4. No strobe, impact resistance, constant current in the full voltage range of 85V ~ 264VAC, nationwide, luminous apparent efficiency rate can be as high as 80lm / w, etc. In general, the disadvantages of energy-saving lamps and LED lamps are more obvious .
Although the advantages of LED lamps are obvious, the disadvantages are also obvious. The first is the price problem. The cost of LED lamps is much higher than that of energy-saving lamps, so the sales price in the market is relatively expensive; The heat dissipation design requirements are relatively high, because the heat dissipation performance directly determines the service life of LED lamps.
