Which Do You Prefer,CFL Or LED?

Release time : 2015-04-02

Nowadays that we know incandescent bulbs are slowly be the past things under the government’s standards. So CFL&LED come to us to play an important role in the daily life. As the replacements of the incandescent bulbs, do you know the differences from one another. Which is more efficient lighting?

Energy Efficiency: CFL&LED are not on a level playing field in terms of energy consumption. While a 60-watt equal CFL typically consumes about 11 watts of energy, a 60-watt equal LED will only consume about 5 watts. LEDs also produce more lumens per watt than CFLs. That mean the same watt with the CFL&LED, that led will be brighter. That is why LEDs are being praised as the ultimate in efficient lighting.

Mercury: We know CFL contains the mercury, when it broken, the mercury will pollute the environment that can keep many years, while LED do not.

Life time: It is obvious, that CFL with average life 6000hours, some CFL can stand for 8000hours. But for LED, it can stands for 100000hours if we skip all elements which affect the life.

Durability: CFL constructed of glass, it is very fragile filament that if you are not take care of it. Also the CFL will weaken the electrodes that the lamp uses to produce light with very strong vibrations. LEDs can be made by glass or plastic and are a lot tougher and can withstand rough handling.

On/Off Frequency: CFLs and LEDs also have different reactions to being frequently turned on and off. If you constantly turn a CFL on and off, its rated life is very likely to decrease. However, the rated lives of LEDs aren’t affected by frequent on and off cycling.
