LED light sources
When looking for the best quality lighting for our home or garden, we often stop at the choice of technology that we will use. Traditional bulbs tempt with low prices, however, is it worth saving on something that affects our health and well-being?
As in contrast to energy-saving bulbs, bulbs are characterized by very low efficiency. This translates into low lifespan and the potential destruction of fittings made of heat-sensitive materials, e.g. plastic.
Before making a purchase, it's a good idea to check the basic parameters of our future light sources and make an informed choice based on knowledge, not price.
LED light bulbs
LED bulbs allow for a very easy and affordable check of the size of the light emitted by them. In this case, we are not guided by the popular power of the bulb given in watts. Instead, let's focus on lumens. The power of the bulb determines the amount of electricity consumed, which can easily lead us into error. LED bulbs can only charge 10 W and produce much more light than traditional incandescent bulbs.
Another advantage of LED bulbs is the ability to choose the corresponding color of light served in Kelvin. Traditional bulbs oscillate around 2500 K. Their LED counterparts are usually around 3000 K. When it comes to the amount of heat transferred, LED technology allows the use of cooling radiators that significantly reduce heating.
The biggest advantage of LED bulbs is undoubtedly their lifespan. They can withstand up to 30,000 hours, which with 1000 hours of traditional bulbs shows the magnitude of the technological difference.
The last of the important parameters is the color rendering index, or CRI for short. This coefficient given in Ra unit informs us about the degree of color reproduction by the bulb. The higher, the better the mapping. Inside the house, we can settle for about 80 Ra.
LED spotlights are suitable for both main and auxiliary lighting. They can also be used for decorative purposes to illuminate essential elements of interior design. It is important that thanks to LED technology we can be sure about the rationality of purchase and the reduction of electricity consumption.
