That such a bet of sustainability to enhance the house decoration? See how LED bulbs can help you save and have a home garden even more beautiful!
For the first time in 2017, the electric bill came with the so-called red flag in April, an increase of R$ 3,00 per 100 kW/h, the stipulated value for the level 1. The measure was taken on account of the low level of rains which forced the entry into action of the thermoelectric power plants, more expensive than the hydroelectric plants. The idea is also to encourage the conscious use of light by consumers, avoiding waste.
Aware that the sustainable use of light is the best way to preserve the environment and to the pocket of the consumer, the exchange of lamps in the house with LED lights is the best option. See how and why to be sustainable in the home with LED bulbs may be the best solution also for the decoration of the house.
More durability and economy with sustainability
One of the interesting points of LED bulbs is that in them the energy consumed is transformed into enlightenment, not in the heat – therefore there is no waste of energy. To give you an idea, an incandescent lamp of 60 W corresponds to an LED of only 4.5 W, that is, a saving of 55.5 W/time.
It is also more cost-effective in relation to other types of lamp. In relation to a fluorescent tube of 40 W, for example, the LED equivalent is only 18 W, with the economy of 22 W/hr.
So already you can tell the economy that the exchange represents in the electricity bill. However, if you think about the durability of this type of lamp, you will see that it will save also on the switching frequency – which also compensates for the higher price of the LED.
The LED has on average 50,000 hours of useful life, or-almost 5 years and 7 months. There is just to make the comparison: the incandescent lasts 1,000 hours, compact fluorescent 6.000, the fluorescent tubular 7,000 and halogen 3,000 hours of life. Thus, in terms of durability, a single LED bulb equals to 50 incandescent bulbs, or eight fluorescent or 16 halogen.
The LED lamps have yet another advantage, unknown to most people: it offers no risk to health. As it does not emit IR radiation and UV, no harm to skin, to plants, to animals or objects or products that are exposed. And as no heavy metals in its composition, there is no need of special disposal, not offering hazard to the environment.
How to use the LED bulbs in the house decoration
The way a house or apartment is lit can completely change the perception of the décor – so the lighting projects are so valued by architects and decorators. However, there are some aspects about the LED lamps that a lot of people can not imagine.
In the garden, for example, they are not only an example of sustainability, but also of beauty and sophistication, not to mention the technology that surround them. As there are already models with connection via wi-fi and bluetooth for light fixtures LED bulbs, it is possible to customize your use through programming.
On the other hand, they also help plants grow more quickly and healthy – a fact that, believe it has already been proven by NASA. In 2012 a group of biologists from the Laboratory of Space Sciences of NASA, compared the reaction of vegetables exposed to fluorescent lamps and the LED lamps to test the best ways to store food for astronauts on long missions. The result, you already imagine: have found that they are the best for cultivation when the replenishment in the Earth is complicated.
Using the LED in the garden in the house
On the other hand, a canadian company that uses the LED in the irrigation night of their crops. The SprayTest Controls found that in addition to light much more than the other – with only two of them it is possible to cover more than 45 metres of planted area – and it doesn’t get hot, because the heat is dissipated through an outlet at the base of the bulb.
Thus, the plants do not suffer with the heat emitted by the lamps and there is a greater life span. Another advantage is that you can regulate the color and intensity of the plant LED, combining decoration and practicality. Just adapt the LED to colours that the plants absorb during their life cycle.
Hi? That’s right, you did not read wrong. Just do a replay of the lessons of biology: the plants are green because they absorb all the colors, minus the green, ultimately, it will reflect that color. But we already know that the colors that best “talk” with the plants and helps in photosynthesis are blue and red, arranged at an angle of 60 ° in relation to the green on the table.
Only that while the red may cause damage to the growth, the blue stimulates the opening of stomata, part of a cell that allows the input of carbon dioxide gas to facilitate photosynthesis.
So, if you have a home garden, whether in pots or in the ground, you can combine decorating the apartment and sustainability to leave his corner even more beautiful while spending less per month with the light bill.
There are still many other projects that can be made with the LED bulbs, valuing every aspect of house decoration. Only you need is creativity and inspiration!
