Many people have the habit of leaving the room to turn off the electricity and turn it on again. This is the habit of many people to save electricity in the home when not in use. However, according to experts, this is only true for incandescent lamps, while fluorescent lamps are not.
Turning fluorescent lights on and off repeatedly will use even more electricity. The life of compact and fluorescent light bulbs depends on the number of on / off times. Therefore, it is not necessary to turn off the lights if you only leave the room for 5-10 minutes. The wrong application of the method again not only saves power but also reduces the life of the device.
In addition, experts recommend replacing the old generation tube lamp (fat tube 40 W) with a 36 W thin tube lamp but a 20% increase in luminous flux, using a low-loss magnetic ballast (6W compared to the bending). circulation 10W), electronic ballast (2 W).
Replace incandescent bulbs with compact light bulbs that have the same luminous flux but consume 4 times less power.
