replacing traditional bulbs with LEDs saves energy and money
Bedford, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/07/2012 -- According to a survey of Consumer Reports, which is a leading product testing organization in the world, light-emitted diode bulbs (LEDs) and compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) are getting more emphasis as compared to the traditional incandescent bulb.
Consumer Reports found that almost 75 percent of the total population of America is currently using CFLs and LEDs that can save them over $130 annually.
The LEDs of Philips, GE and EcoSmart have got a huge significance as people are switching from their incandescent bulb as these bulbs take 75 percent less energy in order to save money which is a healthy sign for the LEDs.
Same is the case with CFLs produced by EcoSmart, Sylvania, Feit, Utilitech and GE available at different prices. However, those people who are using CFLs are unlikely to switch to LEDs, unless prices drop significantly.
Nevertheless, people who are using incandescent bulbs have still shown a tendency to go for LEDs considering that these bulbs consume 75 percent less energy and have a longer life as turning on and off does not create any effect on the life of these bulbs. The Consumer Reports revealed that the top quality LEDs can save people up to $130 in a 23-year-life plan for the bulb.
But the most problematic aspect for people in getting CFLs and LEDs is their high prices. According to Consumer Reports findings, almost 23 percent ratio of people said that these bulbs are too costly.
There is another drawback, which is that CFLs take a little longer time to throw full light and LEDs were found that they do not throw equal light in all directions.
These few setbacks in LEDs and CFLs coupled with high pricing are major elements that are to be considered by those people who are still using the traditional incandescent bulbs.
However, the tendency of using LEDs and CFLs is growing with an incredible pace as Consumer Reports highlighted that a major chunk of the total population has stopped using traditional incandescent bulbs.
