Energy efficient lighting
We often wonder and we also ask for advice from experts on how best to illuminate our living quarters, where you can fix the luminaires, such as bulbs to choose and assemble.
We must reflect on the fact that the selection of the light source in the House and outdoors is not simply a matter of surrender or aesthetics, but also a decision that has to do with the costs, duration of the bulbs, the frequency of their replacement and maintenance.
The speech does not end then within the four walls of the House, but also becomeseconomically and ecologically, especially related to the environment and energy saving.
The importance of this issue was also inserted into the Ecodesign directive or Directive 2009/125/EU or ErP (Energy related Products Directive) Directive for the ecodesign of energy-using products.
This European Union directive was drawn up after the important accession to the Kyoto Protocol which, remember him, committed the EU to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 20% by 2020: a fixed date.
Entered into force in 2005 and implemented by Italy in 2007, the text of the Ecodesign directive tackles different aspects all daily energy-related and aims to achieve a gradual change to step producing and consuming habits of the same household, with the aim of making the use of these indispensable allies less impact on the environment.
Inside it is contained, for example, the obligation on the part of home appliance manufacturers to equip all units of a label that places the product in a class of energy efficiency. Other aspects contained in the Ecodesign directive relate to specific appliances, from the water heater to the heating and air conditioning systems, through individual appliances and lighting systems. This point concerns us here.
The directive also stipulates that European Union States should commit the mselvesto replace the halogen bulbs with new generation energy-saving lamps, such as LEDs.
The very beginning of September 2016 was stopping the production of halogen lamps, in all European countries, including Italy. But we explain better the issue, makingpermanently clarity about where the products concerned and the specific dates of stop the placing of products on the market.
As bent lighting manufacturers Association (Assil), the Ecodesign directive applies toproducts falling under specific regulations issued for the purposes of the requirements.
Directional halogen incandescent lamps do not fall within the scope of Regulation (EC) No 244/2009 that initially called for the banning of these lamps on September 1, 2016.
This regulation was subsequently amended by Council Regulation (EU) 1428/2015 which shifted the date of phase-out in September 1, 2018. The slip covers only non-directional halogen lamps, as, by those keys is applicable regulation (EU) 1194/2012. For the latter dates are not changed and therefore cannot be placed on the market as early as the September 1, 2016.
This issue has been much debated and several Member countries have pushed for this passage could be delayed. The noble end that is fair to adjust, once again, is the energy efficiency of products in every home and every day use.
These have always been appreciated for the powerful light that can give to the environment immediately upon turning on the switch, no need to get upset and reach the full light in a few minutes.
Offer a powerful white light, often were and still are preferred because they are well suited to those on a dimmer switch which is used to modulate the intensity of the light beam.
The bulbs are also cons: require specific disposal, reach very high temperatures of around 3000 degrees gasses that are warming the environment that hosts and emit harmful UV radiation to the skin and the human eye.
Compared to traditional halogen bulb (or vintage lights called by Internetages), that has at its core a halogen gas, which can be much more often bromine or iodine. This gas is the Manager of a lovely light, clear, powerful and intense. Its introduction on the market, many years ago, had represented a great step forward from the point of view of energy consumption: the duration is indeed far superior to traditional bulb, double or even further.
However, today there are the LED lamps, the product that for some time we did getinto our homes to replacing bulbs that we had.
With the ban to continue to produce halogen lamps, consumers, when it will be finished products still on the market, will not dirottarsi on the purchase of LED lamps. Let’s discover features and benefits for the environment and for your wallet.
Led lamps do not overheat, rarely exceed 50 degrees, have a really great about 50000 hours to their maximum intensity (but can run again at least as many hours with reduced power) compared to halogen that at best could get up to about 6000 hours of use before burning.
Certainly the cost when buying a led bulb compared to a halogen changes a lot, it’ s more expensive, but as we will explain in brief the expense will be fully amortized in Exchange for long-term performance.
Just change the led lamps in the House only once or twice in a lifetime.
Even the led lights have a direct on, practical aspect important, do not cause environmental damage because it easily disposed of into the glass along with other items made from the same material because they contain no gases or pollutants and the nallow a cut of 80 to 90% of the electricity bill. We try to give you an idea: If a led bulb lights up a room, home or Office, for eight hours daily, depending on the term extraordinary offering over time, it will work for a little less than 20 years.
Finally, it is worth remembering that replace bulbs with LEDs is very easy and does not require the intervention of a technician that you make changes to the House.
Simply choose the same model used and therefore compatible with chandelier, table lamp, the lights of the bathroom mirror, and screw it to the attack.
The switch to led lamps, which many have already adopted at home as it takes to change a light bulb, can only bring benefits to our well being ecological, economic and quality, saving energy really noteworthy that traveling in the direction of sustainability.
Replacing an led lamp will take place each 16/20 years: stop to heat and space to pure light and durable. Retailers can deplete the stocks of halogen lamps still until 2018, the year of the final changeover to led lighting.
