Withdrawal of incandescent already started since September 2009. It has started with the removal of all frosted bulbs and clear bulbs of more than 80 W.
A year later, it was the turn of more than 65 W incandescent bulbs .
This year, in September 2011 the bulbs more 45W leave forever your supermarket shelves, shops of DIY, decoration shops, signs, specialized, etc.
A year later, it will be incandescent light bulbs more of 7W who will cease to be sold.
It is wrong to say that all incandescent bulbs will cease to exist. Indeed, there are a range of so-called special bulbs that will not be affected in this family of bulbs.
What does a special so-called bulb?
A bulb for use in devices such as:
- a fridge
- a mirror
- an oven
- a sewing machine
The European directive that frames this withdrawal of bulbs the most energy-intensive is a strong gesture to the environment and greater energy expenditure control.
Not only across every home energy savings is made but across the whole country we’re talking about several terawatt-hours economy.
The main idea is to promote more responsible lighting and eco-efficiency that these light bulbs do not allow to get. In fact, an incandescent light bulb turns 20% of its energy in light and 80% in heat.
If you still use incandescent bulbs, you may wonder what are the alternatives to the conventional bulb…
Several criteria are taken into account to find the product best suited to your needs:
- the nerve to the bulb to replace (E27, E14, B22 chutzpah…)
- the wattage of the desired lighting
- the use of the bulb
- the price of the replacement bulb
First test: the nerve. Look on your fixture and/or your bulb reference of this nerve.
Second criterion to be studied: the equivalent expressed in watts of the new bulb. For example, this equivalence led 60 watts actually consumes 12 W. Either 80% saving compared to a conventional bulb.
For example, a dimmer, you turn to halogen bulbs. For use on a timer, you would choose bulbs fluo-compact Dulux Intelligent Facility.
This last criterion that will guide your choice: the price.
To replace the bulbs, you have the choice mainly between these 3 technologies:
– compact fluorescent bulbs
– halogen eco
– led light bulbs
