     Ever wondered what kind of light bulbs (LEDs, energy-saving lamps or incandescent lamps) are best for the environment?

     In the three-part study initiated by the environmental sector, there is no doubt that LEDs are significantly better for the environment than other lighting options such as energy-saving lamps, especially incandescent bulbs.

     The study considered various factors and assessed the extent to which each bulb affected the air, water, soil and resources of our planet.

     That's not surprising. Smart bulbs consume less energy, live longer, and use materials that are safer than any other light bulb.

Low energy consumption of intelligent lighting

     Smart bulbs dominate when it comes to energy consumption.

     Traditional incandescent bulbs consume a lot of energy, and in fact most of the energy loss is to generate heat, up to 90%! This means that only 10% of the energy can really glow.

     The heat loss coefficients of compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) are significantly lower, which is one reason why they can produce the same amount of light by 75% less energy than conventional incandescent bulbs. Instead of using electric heating filaments like incandescent lamps, they use electricity through a chamber to excite internal mercury molecules to produce light.

      Although compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) are very efficient at using energy, the LEDs of smart bulbs actually improve the energy consumption by 80%. This is partly because LEDs have solid-state structures, which means there are virtually no moving parts. Electricity is emitted only through a semiconductor, forcing electrons to jump from one place to another, a process that leads to the production of light.

      These energy savings not only help reduce monthly electricity tariffs, but also help reduce global energy production and reduce carbon emissions. For example, for example, in 2012 alone, American consumers saved more than 675 million dollars by converting LEDs and converted them to LEDs completely by 2032, saving more than $250 billion trillion in energy costs for the United States!

The service life of intelligent bulb

      Long service life is the second largest environmental characteristics of intelligent bulbs. Typical incandescent lamps usually last about 1000 hours, or about 6 hours per day, and can be used for about 4 months. Energy-saving lamps provide about 10,000 hours of service life, under the same utilization rate, about 4.5.

      On the other hand, LEDs provide amazing 25,000 hours! This means that if you turn the LED light on for 6 hours a day, it lasts nearly 11.5 times, far exceeding the energy-saving lamp, especially the incandescent bulb.

      The benefits of longevity bulbs are easy to see. Using an LED is equivalent to about 33 incandescent bulbs, which means that we don't have to produce too many bulbs, which means that landfills are reduced, production costs are reduced, and transport consumption is reduced, which of course means cleaner air.

Mercury-Free illumination

      Another important point about the environmental impact of smart bulbs is that they do not contain the same harmful substances as other light bulbs (i.e., energy-saving lamps).

      As we have pointed out before, fluorescent lamps use the interaction of mercury and electricity to make light. As many people know, Mercury has some very bad effects on our health. Because mercury poisoning is most common when inhaled, the damaged fluorescent tubes need to be cleaned immediately.

      In fact, fluorescent bulbs have special treatment steps to deal with this potentially lethal compound. Although mercury in fluorescent bulbs is now much lower than before, it should be exposed to as little as possible.

      On the other hand, LEDs do not contain mercury. Although you still have to pay attention to the damaged smart light bulb, you don't have to worry about inhaling mercury during the cleanup process.

Other features

       While the energy consumption, service life and safety of smart bulbs are one of the main reasons for environmental protection, they have other features that can help reduce your ability to implement other functions.

       LEDs have a more concentrated light distribution than other bulbs. Incandescent bulbs and fluorescent bulbs glow in all directions, and LEDs can illuminate an area without affecting the surrounding environment. Think of the other bulbs as a torch, and the LEDs as a spotlight. This means that you don't have to use 8 incandescent bulbs to light a room, but you can use 5 places to put the right smart light bulbs to achieve the same effect.

      Smart lighting also allows you to set up schedules so that they automatically turn off. So if you're in a hurry to get to work in the morning and forget to switch off, you won't waste a whole day driving the lights on.

      Intelligent light bulb dimming ability can also reduce a lot of energy consumption. Over time, you'll notice that an easy way to really help you lower your electricity bill.
