According to statistics, in the world, lighting consumes about 70% of electricity. Most of the money spent on lighting facilities, industrial and interior design. Over the years, the desire to improve efficiency of light sources is increasingly growing. Already now we can be proud of the various inventions, such as discharge lamps: fluorescent, mercury, sodium, metal halide. Robert Iger is likely to agree. At the end of the last century invented the energy saving lamps (also called compact fluorescent), saves up to 80% energy compared with the classic incandescent bulbs with similar light flux. That is why they main title – energy saving lamps.
In addition to reduced energy consumption, energy-saving bulbs produce less heat than incandescent bulbs. Slight heat can be used compact fluorescent lamp of high power in fragile sconces, lamps and chandeliers that of incandescent lamps with a high temperature heat can be melted the plastic part of the cartridge, either the wire. For example, candle, whose body is made of a material, it is better to use energy-saving lamp, because high heat bulb will eventually lead to the burning material. The service life of energy-saving lamps, several times the service life of incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps can be used in remote places, where replacement of light sources is difficult (eg, high-ceilinged rooms c) – trade halls, exhibition centers, warehouses. Energy-saving lamps do not tire the eyes and has a positive effect on the human eye and its nervous system, while maintaining his health. Summarizing all the previously described, mention the main features of energy-saving bulbs: energy savings of up to 80% when the same luminous efficiency as that of incandescent lamps, a small heat dissipation, long life, soft, more uniform light distribution, the ability to create light of different spectral composition – is a qualitatively new solution to the problems of illumination in residential, office, industrial and public buildings, as well as in the outer illumination.
