LED lights have emerged as a prominent choice in modern lighting technology, gradually replacing traditional lighting methods and gaining widespread popularity. Their energy efficiency, environmental friendliness, and long lifespan have garnered significant attention and favor. Today, Canco will discuss the differences between energy-saving lamps and LED lights, shedding light on their distinct features and advantages.
1. Some Differences in Working Principle and Energy-Saving Performance
Both energy-saving lamps and LED lights are more energy-efficient lighting options compared to traditional incandescent bulbs. However, they differ in terms of their working principles and energy-saving performance.
1.1 Working Principle
LED lights are semiconductor light-emitting devices that generate light when an electric current passes through semiconductor materials. On the other hand, energy-saving lamps use an electric current to excite the fluorescent powder in gas, resulting in light emission.
1.2 Energy Efficiency
LED lights have a higher energy efficiency, making them more energy-saving than traditional light bulbs. The energy efficiency of LED lights typically exceeds 80-90 lumens per watt, while energy-saving lamps range around 50-70 lumens per watt.
LED lights have a longer lifespan, usually reaching tens of thousands of hours, surpassing traditional incandescent bulbs and energy-saving lamps. Energy-saving lamps typically have a lifespan ranging from several thousand to ten thousand hours.
1.4 Lighting Performance
LED lights offer superior lighting performance, providing more accurate, uniform, and natural light. LED lights have a wider range of color temperature options and color rendering capabilities, making them more versatile in lighting design. Energy-saving lamps have relatively lower color rendering capabilities.
1.5 Startup Time
LED lights can reach full brightness almost instantly without any warm-up time, while energy-saving lamps usually require a certain amount of time to achieve full brightness.
1.6 Environmental Characteristics
LED lights are more environmentally friendly compared to energy-saving lamps as they do not contain harmful substances such as mercury. Energy-saving lamps may contain a small amount of mercury in their fluorescent powder and electronic components.
2. LED Light Power Selection for Home Spaces
2.1 Living Room: Bright Illumination
60-150w, the living room usually constitutes a significant proportion of the total area of a house, hence requiring higher wattage for adequate lighting.
2.2 Bedroom: Soft and Cozy
13-50w, bedroom lighting should be soft and gentle, avoiding harsh lights that may hinder sleep quality.
2.3 Kitchen: Sufficient Brightness
3-38w, the kitchen requires adequate brightness, ensuring no dark areas while minimizing inconvenience and hazards during cooking.
2.4 Elderly Room: Higher Wattage
25-100w, with declining eyesight, the elderly need brighter lighting to ensure clear visibility of objects.
2.5 Children's Room: Lower Wattage
13-70w, children’s rooms should have soft lighting to avoid eye strain and promote a calming atmosphere conducive to sleep.
