A few days ago I was talking to my sister about the voltage of the lamps, I realized I knew nothing about the subject and it would be something interesting to share with you. So I broke up with some information that I found and that has nothing to do with the questions I was having. Check and be sure to learn too.
You may already know that round lamp that we had when I was very small no longer exists. You to find to buy, but they are not made anymore. They are incandescent bulbs, your advantage was to have a low cost and a large emission of light. But also consumed a lot of energy and it also had a low life.
Usually you find incandescent lamps 25 to 75 watts. She had its advantages and disadvantage, was cheaper and was generating a lot of light, but the disadvantages spoke louder. She warmed a lot, had a short shelf life and consumed more electricity. As you’re not easy to find this kind of lamp in the market we will not get stuck to it.Meet the two lamps currently used.
Fluorescent Lamp-Lamp Voltage
This model is well known, it has become standard, even before the red-hot disappear from the market she was preferred. The fluorescent lamp consumes less energy than the incandescent. Emits a white light and strong and can be used in all environments. It is worth remembering that this lamp cannot be discarded anyway, because it causes damage to the environment.
Among the advantages of this lamp is greater energy efficiency, lower power consumption compared to incandescent. It is also good for emit white light and has an affordable price, even though it’s more expensive than the first. Ah!!! You also find that different lamp models, has small, big, round, long and so on.
Among the disadvantages is the pollution, she is highly pollutant to have mercury and phosphorus. It is also more economical, but loses to the LED models.
When I was researching the voltage of lamps to find out that a 15 W fluorescent lamp is the equivalent of a 60 W incandescent bulb, which means people who were used to buy 60 Watt lamps began to buy 15.
These are the flowers, it was with them that I was in doubt about the voltage of the lamps. Its technology is modern and allows a very low energy consumption. But she still has a high cost and low light, unless you use the super led. See the advantages of this lamp:
Economical, because it has an advanced technology;
Does not emit heat and so is considered a cold lamp;
Has long durability;
There are various models and various applications, with spots, light bulbs, light fixtures, etc.
Among the downsides of the LED lamps is the high cost if you are compare with fluorescent. Also generates little light and for that you need more lights. Many say that your price is compensated with her longevity and also with electric energy saving.
And the voltage of the LED, with my research to find out that 1 W LED is equivalent to 3 W of fluorescent and incandescent’s 15. So if you have used to buy a 34 W fluorescent must buy a 16W LED. Check out the table below, she will help you.
What Light Bulb To Buy?
The tip is for now choose the fluorescent, she makes you save on the final value of the electricity bill. This bulb spend 80% less energy than incandescent. The LED decreases even more the electricity bill, but is more expensive and so you don’t save so much in a year or two.
Prefer the compact fluorescent. The LED only worth it if you find LED light bulbs with five-year durability and warranty for this period.
I hope you solved your doubts about voltage lamps. I had no idea it was so different and I thought it was pretty cool to understand a little more. Be sure to share with your friends so they make the right choice.
