e17 led bulbFor several years I’m considering the purchase of the e17 LED bulb (also called LED). In general I like the savings in sense to do the same (or more) amount of work with less resources, not in the sense of “deprivation”. So for a long time we used at home energy saving bulbs. The question this time was if it was worth to go on LED lamps. I start to read and discover new things about e17 led bulb.
The main reason was that I could not find a light that I like. I tried several times with LED lights, which, however, although described characteristic “warm yellow light”, not real light I liked. But I think technology has sufficiently advanced, and after yet another attempt to purchase of qualitative LED Bulbs, things have already come to the place. I will share my experiences below, with the idea that can be helpful when choosing your LED bulbs.
In the selection of LED lighting we must consider what kind of light we want to get. The light spectrum of different light sources (standard incandescent bulbs, energy saving bulbs, LED lamps) is measured using the unit Kelvin (means with K). This is called color temperature of light.
Each bulb has a corresponding indication in Kelvin, and the wording on the light (color temperature), which emits. Accordingly, we can choose from the following types of light:
Warm white (yellow) light (2700-3500K):
Warm light (yellowish) is closest to the light emitted by ordinary incandescent bulbs. It is believed that it does not burden the eyes, and usually used in homes.
Daylight (meeting as neutral and light ( 4000-4200K):
It is as close to daylight, from where comes its name. It is widely used in offices and public buildings.
White (pure white light, cold white light – 5500-6500K): As is evident from the name, this light has a white-blue hue. Used outdoors, in combination with daylight as well as in places where need more real color representation – offices, shops, boutiques and more.
Thing of e17 LED bulbs is that they lack the period of “heating”, so unpleasant a characteristic of common energy saving bulbs. And even better is that unlike normal incandescent lamps, LED bulbs do not heat up.
e17 led bulbWhy LED bulbs
•    LED luminaries have a longer life than other types of bulbs, if used in an appropriate environment. Their life is measured in tens of thousands of hours, which is no small thing. This logically leads to no small savings in future maintenance and cost of lighting.
•    drastically higher efficiency and lower energy consumption compared to incandescent bulbs (up to 80% lower cost approximately the same brightness)
•    Minimum heat output than conventional incandescent lamps, where about 90% of the power goes to heat
•    A low emission of infrared and ultraviolet rays. This could mean a lower risk of fire, especially when compared with halogen spotlights.
•    Much faster time to power and greater durability in starting and stopping
•    At the moment there are solutions for retrofitting to almost all types of lighting
•    Average LED bulbs are healthier. They normally have no glass to break and no filament that can be damaged by vibration (e.g. when moving)
•    They are friendlier to the environment. They last longer, do not result in emissions of CO2, and do not contain any toxic materials
•    Some LEDs can be set to dynamically change color.
Now, armed with this information, you can see the huge selection of LED lamps in the store.
