If we all do our part and recycle Cfls we can protect our environment. But is everyone willing to do so?2011/06/28 at 5:51 pm #12226
led light tube said:
One really cannot conclude that CFL are better that incandescent light bulbs as both have pros and cons in it. Both are context driven where and when they might be needed. Now LED lightind has come into picture which have a lot of advantages over CFL & incandescent light bulbs.
The problem with LED is the high cost compared to CFLs. For now the best option is to use CFls which will save you energy and will last longer.2011/10/09 at 2:03 pm #12548
Fluorescent bulbs contain mercury and pose a danger to the environment.Some may be required to pay for disposal of fluorescent bulbs.If the bulb breaks, it contaminates it's surroundings icluding food. Proper clean up can be expensive. LED Light Bulb use less energy than a Compact Fluorescent for the same light output.2011/11/03 at 7:55 am #12595AnonymousGuest
i would say to try LED lights. LED lamps typically include heat management elements such as heat sinks and cooling fins. LED lamps offer long service life and high energy efficiency, but initial costs are higher than those of fluorescent and incandescent lamps. that initial cost hardly matters if you are expecting a lot more benefits out of it. ultimately it willl save ur pocket in terms of electricity bill, u wont get harmed so no doctor charges, and u’ll also contribute somthing towards ur environment.2011/11/18 at 7:35 am #12649AnonymousGuest
Well..I dont know how green CFLs are but i do know that I am using havells CFLs right now and hadn’t faced any problem till now.I agree with all the points stated above that we should take care of environment and all..Havells LEDs lamps are also there so we can have a look at that also.2011/11/21 at 5:23 am #12641
CFLs has lower power cosumption(80%) and much longr life time(5 to 15times) but it disadventage are ,it longer start mainly at more expeansive type.
It is available usualy in these colour temperature
1)WAEM WHITE (2700K)
3)DAY LIGHT(6000K).2011/11/21 at 9:33 am #12659AnonymousGuest
Well…Cfls would be having some problem but we cant deny the fact that they do also make us save a lot of energy.We can also choose Some good incandescent bulbs like havells have a long range of good looking Incandescent bulbs.We can have a look at that also.2011/11/21 at 1:45 pm #12660
LED lamps emit no Infrared or Ultraviolet radiation. CFLs (and tubular fluorescent lamps) generate light by exciting the Mercury vapor inside the lamp with electricity, generating Ultraviolet radiation, which stimulates the phosphor coating on the inner surface of the glass bulb, causing it to re-radiate most of the Ultraviolet radiation as visible light. LED lamps generally create “white” light by using blue LEDs and a phosphor coating which re-radiates some of the blue light as longer wavelength light (yellow range of the spectrum), together appearing as white.

Earlier I was also not knowing that CFLs have so many drawbacks but after going through some of the articles on internet,I came to know a lot of fact about CFLs.I decided to change my CFLs and start looking for a good brand and after doing a bit of research I found that Havells lighting products are well known and they do have good quality.I changed my CFLs with havells LEDs and now I am a fully relieved man.2011/11/27 at 7:50 am #12678WilliamFritzParticipant
The high cost has been the main obstacle in the popularity of CFL bulbs. It costs about four times as much as traditional bulbs. While dimmer switches can set an ambiance and save you money on your energy bill with old incandescent light bulbs, it is not recommended that you use them with CFL bulbs as it can shorten the life of the bulb.2011/11/28 at 7:28 am #12683AnonymousGuest
CFLs are said to have some drawbacks when it comes to something related to nature but we need to see the other side of the coin also..It makes us save a lot of energy and also provide a good look also to our homes.I am using Havells CFLs which are said to save 80% energy when compared to other brands and have a longer life.2011/12/01 at 6:15 am #12622AnonymousGuest
every electronic product has some pros and cons.fluorescent lamps are said to have some drawbacks but we can’t deny the fact that they also help us save a lot of electricity.I am using Havells CFLs which makes me save a lot of electricity and the lighting of this lamp is also just amazing.2011/12/02 at 10:18 am #12652AnonymousGuest
The presence of mercury do makes fluorescent lamps a bit risky but we should look on the other side of the coin also..fluorescent lamps have a lot of advantages also..Use of cfls make us tos ave 80% energy..i am using havells Cfls at present moment and i am Fully satisfied with it.Havells Products are really good.2011/12/05 at 9:32 am #12658AnonymousGuest
CFL’s are great way to save our energy bills.They do cost a bit more but the return they give us by saving is just phenominal….I have been using havells fluorescent lamps from quite a long time and they had really made me save a good amount on my electricity bills.2011/12/19 at 9:59 am #12733AnonymousGuest
I completely believe the fact that LED is best choice available that you can buy.When big enterprise stimulates CFLs as better than incadescent is generally a marketing trick.They did not display that esp that CFLs contain mercury fumes and also can in a roundabout way promote headaches due to visibility.
Currently there are serious goes in EU contries to ban incadescent and most likely Aust and NZ will adhere to.
