Unsurprisingly, LED bulbs have revolutionized the consumer electronics market.The advantages of this type of lighting go far beyond the economy, which makes the light bill weigh less in the pocket at the end of the month.
More efficient and durable than conventional ones, LED lamps are also economical for the environment, reducing not only energy expenditure, but toxic waste (since there is no mercury) and emission of greenhouse gases, for Produce much less heat compared to incandescent and fluorescent.
However, to ensure the full benefit of the product, you must be aware of the specifications of each model and the location where the lamps will be installed.With that in mind, we separate 4 infallible tips so you do not make mistakes at the time of purchase.Check it:
Check product specifications on packaging
To ensure its efficiency and economy, the LED Light Emitting Diode uses light emitting diode technology.But to prove this effectiveness in the products offered by the market, it is necessary to check if the LED lamps found on the shelves have INMETRO quality seals, with the registration number and year of manufacture, and the ENCE (National Label of Energy Conservation), Which certifies the minimum level of energy efficiency of the product.
In addition, the manufacturer needs to bring in the package technical information on power (W), flow (lm), color temperature (K) and luminous efficiency (lm / W).
Understand the ratio of product Lumens to Energy Efficiency
When replacing conventional (fluorescent and incandescent) bulbs with LED bulbs, you need to understand the energy equivalence described on the packaging to ensure that the product will be economical.It works like this: the most efficient LEDs are those that have the best Lumens per Watt ratio, that is, those that produce more luminous flux with less energy consumption.
For example: if the packaging says that the 18W LED is equivalent to a 60W incandescent it means that when you make the replacement, you will be consuming 42W less, ensuring economy.On the effectiveness of lighting, the relationship is as follows: the lower the lamp power, the more economical the product;And the greater the amount of lumens, the more it illuminates.
Choose the Color Temperature according to the installation environment
Different rooms ask for different LEDs.At the time of purchase, be sure to check the Color Temperature (K) indicated on the package: yellow (to create more intimate and cozy environments such as bedrooms) and cool white (for more active places such as offices and study rooms ), In addition to the warm white, which does not overshadow the vision, recommended for the TV rooms.
For wet locations such as kitchens and bathrooms, the use of hermetic fixtures is indicated as this prevents their electronic components from being damaged and their luminous flux reduced before the time reported by the manufacturer.
Another tip is that some specific models allow control in the light intensity, allowing the creation of different scenarios and climates.In this case, the model will be highlighted on the package as “dimmable”.
Judge the price according to the equivalences with the conventional lamps
LED bulbs tend to cost a little more if compared to incandescent and fluorescent equivalents, which ends up scaring consumers.On the other hand, it is already possible to find in the market options of LED lamps with price equal or even lower than the conventional ones.However, it must be understood that this is a medium-term investment:even if the LED is slightly more expensive than conventional lamps, the investment is offset by the savings in the light bill , which can reach 90% per year.
This is explained by the fact that the LED has 95% capacity to transform into electricity, while that potential in conventional lamps is only 5%, the rest dissipated in heat losses.
Did you note it?With these suggestions it is even easier to replace the conventional lamps of your home with modern LED lamps, contributing to sustainability and preserving your pocket and your health.For more tips and trends of LEDs short our page on Facebook!
