CFL or LED? Which is the better light for you?



With lots of attributes to consider, which is really better for you? Let’s scale it down.
CFL
CFL also known as compact fluorescent is your mini version of a standard fluorescent light bulb.
CFL gives lighting efficiency and has been used for decades now and it has graced our homes as it fits perfectly in an ordinary socket without using an adaptor.
CFLs normally takes a few moments to warm up and reach its full brightness.
However, CFLs contain a small amount of mercury which normally does not cause any hazard but if the bulb breaks accidentally, that’s where the problem comes in. Mercury has been banned in the medical field due to its harmful effect on human health.
Regular CFL bulbs lasts up to 6000 hours
Average energy use per year: 767 KWh/yr
Average cost in the Philippines: Php 125 to 300

LED

LED or Light Emitting Diodes was introduce several years back with the promise of lowering your electric bill.
According to the study made by Lighting Research Center, LED light bulbs work by bringing together currents with a positive and negative charge to create energy released in the form of light. The result of this is a fast source of light that is reliable and instantaneous.
LED bulbs also fits an ordinary socket without the need of an adaptor and it bright up as soon as you switch it on.
LED bulbs is considered good for the environment and are endorsed by green movements.
LED bulbs generally cost more to buy although manufacturing technologies are lowering these prices as we move along.
Regular LED lasts anywhere from 20,000 to 50,000 hours.
Average energy use per year: 329 KWh/yr
Average cost in the Philippines: Php300 to 800

Equal Factor
Both serves your lighting needs efficiently. Both fits in sockets of your lamps and fixtures. Meaning, if you don’t consider the chances of your bulb breaking then you would likely choose CFL over LED because of the price difference.


Points to Ponder:
CFL might cost less but it requires you to buy more bulbs over time whereas LED lights last longer, so even though you’re paying more at purchase, you buy fewer bulbs in the long run.
Considering the humid weather in the Philippines, we should also consider that CFL bulb emits more heat than LED bulb, thus, by choosing wisely, you can reduce the heat index in your home.
Moreover, if you care for the environment, Lower energy consumption decreases carbon dioxide emissions, sulfur oxide, and high-level nuclear waste.

Art, Music or Dance School Search for McKenzie: Lea De Castro Music Studio & Artist Center
