With the change of time, the night arrives much earlier than desired and it is essential to turn on the switches much earlier. This suffers. And a lot. Thus, in addition to other general habits such as controlling the temperature with thermostats and programmers or using efficient appliances, saving on lighting using LED bulbs is one of the most efficient saving solutions for winter. 5% of the electricity consumption of a home corresponds to lighting. Saving through good habits will make our budget not suffer at the end of the month. How to do it?
CHOOSE THE RIGHT BULB
A traditional 100w is equivalent to a 30 W fluorescent, a 50 W halogen or, what is better, a 15 W LED bulb. To provide adequate energy efficiency in each home, it is necessary to choose it according to the room. That way we can get the most out of it.
TYPES OF BULBS
There are several types of bulbs with different characteristics. For example, LEDs are the most efficient. They have a useful life of between 15,000 and 25,000 hours (about 10 years) and help reduce energy consumption by up to 90%.
In the same way, the ecological halogen can save between 20 and 30% compared to a traditional light bulb, lasting twice as many hours (2,000h).
Instant ignition, long lifespan, high energy efficiency (A +), good color reproduction, no mercury (very toxic substance), do not heat up ...
So, although its price is higher, it is worth investing in efficient light bulbs to help keep our accounts at bay every month. A good choice for all rooms, even outside. Especially in places where the light is on constantly.
