We will learn how to choose an economical product and which manufacturer is better. The rating, which takes into account customer reviews, will help in this.
How to choose an energy saving light bulb
Going to the store for a purchase, you should focus on a number of important parameters:
- Power. To choose the right indicator, you need to divide the power of a conventional lamp by five. So, if there are 100 W light sources in the chandelier, then a housekeeper with a power of 20 W is enough. This rule does not always apply to Chinese products.
- Plinth view. Many lighting fixtures have a base with the designation E27. E40 is suitable for large lighting devices, E14 for sconces.
- Temperature. Housekeepers produce different colors of light. Devices with a temperature of 6-6.5 thousand K are suitable for an office. This is a cold color with a certain blueness. For a children's room, it is advisable to choose natural light (4.2 thousand K). It is worth buying a lamp with a temperature of 2700 K for the bedroom.
- Life time. The work period varies from 3 to 15 thousand hours. Usually it is 4-6 thousand hours.
- Guarantee. The term ranges from six months to 3 years, depending on the company.
- The form. It depends on the type of chandelier. The choice of shape should be as close as possible to the interior design.
- You should not be led to a very cheap housekeeper. Otherwise, there is a risk of buying a fake, incapable of burning even for a thousand hours.
