What do I need to know about buying a new light bulb?
If you're looking to replace specific bulbs in your household, you're probably used to picking up a bulb that's 60-watt, 75-watt, or the like. Unfortunately these measurements, based on how much energy the bulb used, are not an accurate way to tell how much light bulbs produce—and looking at wattage on new bulbs, which use far less energy, won't get you the right amount of light.
To accurately gauge light level, look for the number of lumens—a measure of how much light a bulb produces rather than how much energy it uses—listed on the package. If you're replacing a specific bulb, here's a cheat sheet:
- If you used to buy 100 watt bulbs, look for a bulb with 1600 lumens.
- If you used to buy 75 watt bulbs, look for a bulb with 1100 lumens.
- If you used to buy 60 watt bulbs, look for a bulb with 800 lumens.
- If you used to buy 40 watt bulbs, look for a bulb with 450 lumens.
Out with the Old and in with the New. Energy saving bulbs are now cheaper than ever!
The Different Types:
- Incandescents (Old Standard Bulb): Your old standard 100 watt bulb. Old technology. Wasted too much energy.
- CFL: These were the 'curled bulbs' which were great at the beginning of energy saving but now being phased out. Contained Mercury! Dangerous if smashed.
- LEDs: The most efficient option, LED bulbs are 75-80% more efficient than traditional incandescents and last 25 times longer—and, soon these will be the only bulbs available.
- Smart bulbs: Smart bulbs are LED bulbs that can connect to Wi-Fi so you can control them from your computer or a smartphone app. While the functionality is a bit different for each bulb, you can typically tell them to turn on or off at different times and turn them on or off from afar. Some bulbs will even have the option to control the light color.
Homes can save hundreds of euro a year...
...Restaurants, Shops and Factories can save THOUSANDS a year!
LED Bulbs now cost lower than ever!
Let's do the maths and see how much you can save!
Electricity is charged per 1000 watts currently averaging 16 cent.
If an old type 45w bulb is plugged in, it will run for 1000 divided by 45 = 22 hours for 16 cent
If a new LED 6w bulb giving the same light is plugged, it will run for 1000 divided by 6 = 166 hours for 16 cent
OLD TYPE = 22 Hours NEW LED TYPE = 166 Hours for 16 cent
