Saving Tips At Home: Compact Fluorescent Lamps

Because electric lighting consumes nearly 15% of electricity consumption, you may want to know some alternatives to energy saving lamps. Compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) is one you should consider.
The project integrates the energy efficiency of fluorescent luminaires with incandescent comfort and exchanges. CFL suitable for most devices are designed for incandescent lamps.
Compact fluorescent bulbs can replace incandescent lamps is about 3-4 times the power, which means that you can save up to 75% lighting energy. Although CFLs cost 10-20 times longer than comparable incandescent bulbs, last 10-15 times longer. In other words, in the long run, save a lot of money to pay more up front.
Function CFL than ordinary fluorescent lamps. They consist of two parts: a magnetic or electronic ballast and a full gas bottle. Gas in the lamp tube with ultraviolet light when the current through the reactor. This in turn leads to a white phosphor coating inside the tube emits visible light along the pipe surface.
Write CFL that uses magnetic ballasts flicker when they start, like normal fluorescent lamps. Also weighing on CFL with electronic ballasts, which can make them too heavy for some lights. Electronic ballasts are more expensive, but the light soon. They are also more efficient than magnetic ballasts. Most currently available with compact fluorescent electronic ballast.
Because CFLs are designed to operate in a certain temperature range, the temperature outside the range determines the light emission reductions. A CFL temperature range can be found in printed on the light box. Although they are not designed for outdoor use, especially for indoor applications. You can install outdoor lighting LFC closed to reduce the effects of cold temperatures and cold winds.
This type of lighting is most effective in areas where lights are left for a long time. In places where the light is over a short period of time, as the cabinets and pantry, incandescent lamps can be a better choice. Since the CFL does not have to be changed frequently, they are perfect for hard to reach areas such as ceiling lamps.
