Energy-Saving Halogen Incandescent
Energy-saving, halogen incandescent bulbs have a capsule inside that holds gas around a filament to increase bulb efficiency. This type of incandescent bulb is about 25% more efficient and can last up to three times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.
LEDs (light emitting diodes) are small in size, but can be grouped together for higher intensity applications. They’re better at casting light in a single direction than other forms of lighting. LEDs use up to 80% less energy and last about 25 times longer than incandescent lighting. LEDs emit very little heat. In comparison, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat and CFLs release about 80% of their energy as heat. Common uses for LED lighting include industrial and commercial lights, under-cabinet lights, recessed-down lights, holiday lights, and to light outdoor areas such as gardens and walkways.
