Newest LED Lamps Rule

23/11/2018 Posted by admin

Incandescent lamps are running hot, as in, many people are buying them and being that they are only 10 per cent efficient, they also create a lot of heat, which in itself,costs more on your electric bill compared to traditional heating.

They simply make no sense today, but because they are cheap they become affordable to replace.But theycost more on the long run…a lot more.

In today’s Tech Untangled segment on Global TV Morning News I showed a 40 watt Incandescent bulb running against a new Philips Ambient LED 9 watt. Both produce the same amount of brightness, although the LED bulb concentrated more than twice the light in one direction compared to the 360 degree coverage of the Incandescent lamp.

In the TV studio, I used a Belkin Conserve Insight $39, to measure the wattage, power bill cost per year/month and the carbon foot print.

Here is a link to my Global TV segment:


LED lights have come a long way. You can slice and dice it many ways but my figuring shows that running one $3.00, 40 watt Incandescent bulb compared to a new Philips $25.00, LED 9 watt equivalent continuously for almost two years would save you $65, including bulb purchases and power bills.

So where do CFL (compact Fluorescents) bulbs stand today? They run about half the hours of LED models and consume twice the energy. They don’t turn on instantly like LED lights and can break easily, like Incandescent lamps. Moisture and cold also affect them. They also are not as smoothly dimmable as the Philips Ambient LED 9 watt I showed.
