Energy Bulbs Proud To Introduce GU10 Range For Bright Lighting

Energy Bulbs takes a pride in being able to supply bulbs to all different sectors of the market and the GU10 range has been a very important range over the years. The original GU range, which appeared some years ago when ceiling lights became a fashion in Kitchens and Bathrooms throughout the newer houses and apartment blocks of the British housing market. The original bulbs were standard 60 watt bulbs, which gave a much better lighting system to areas where a good light source increased the workload and the quality of work. Businesses and production units followed and the GU10 lamp became a highly used unit. They are however fairly costly to run in this form and the bulb life is relatively short which means extra maintenance and also these bulbs can often blow a fuse when they short out which puts the area into total darkness.

Decor 7W Quadruple High Power GU10 LEDs which are supplied by Energy Bulbs are an excellent workhorse that will go on for a very long time with the average working life of around 50,000 hours resulting in little or no maintenance and of course with no bulbs shorting out there are no power trips to bother about either. Energy Bulbs note that the Décor 7W Quadruple Bulb has 4 LEDs within the bulb to give the high power of the bulb and the cool white light. The 7 watt rating means a power saving of some 75 to 80% when pitted against the standard 60 watt halogen bulb. LED bulbs have a range of light quality and the colour of the light depends on the material sprayed on the diode. Historically white light is the most difficult to form as the sprayed materials are difficult to find which give white light and white light is often formed from a mixture of different colours from different materials. The Decor 7W Quadruple High Power GU10 Lamp gives a cool white light with a 36 degree angle of light spread, which is quite good for an LED lamp. If this light is a little too harsh Energy Bulbs can supply the same version of GU 10 lamp but with a daylight bulb to give a softer feel to the light.

Because of the very low power usage these bulbs run at a much lower temperature than the normal bulbs. Energy Bulbs are proud to note that the expected savings in power are some 20 times the cost of the energy bulb itself. These levels of saving are very good and do not take into account the savings light bulb changing time which over the 50,000 hour life cycle of the bulb would be quite large when compared to the expenditure on the normal bulbs. There is some outlay if bulbs are changed throughout a house or an office or work place but these costs will be very quickly recouped on normal operation.

20% Of The Cost Of Most Domestic Electricity Bills Is From Lighting

Although energy-saving light bulbs are more expensive to buy than ordinary bulbs they can last up to 15 times longer, depending on the type of the bulb you buy.

Changing saves energy and thus money.

The November 2009 ©Which? report on Megaman® GSU111d 11w Dimmerable® (fully dimmable with standard dimmers) had this to say:

“Test score 75%. Megaman® GSU111d Dimmerable® Warm White 11W.

Pros. One of the best bulbs for starting up, this one produces a good amount of light quickly and light output meets the manufacturer’s claim. It lasts well, too – we test bulbs for up to 8,000 hours, and every one of the Megaman® bulbs lasted the duration. It handles frequent switching on and off well and can be used with dimmer switches.”

With many traditional light bulbs disappearing from the shops for good, now is the time to change to more energy-efficient lamps & bulbs.

In September the phase out of traditional bulbs started with 100w clear and most pearl/frosted wattages being discontinued, all others will go over the next few years.

The humble light bulb is dead….. to be replaced by more efficient lighting such as compact fluorescent lamps — known as CFLs, or energy-saving light bulbs.

This has caused a lot of consumer concerns. Gurney & White Ltd, stockist of Megaman energy efficient light bulbs, have provided answers to the most frequently asked questions:

Q. For how long will I be able to buy ordinary bulbs?

A. 75W clear bulbs will be phased out from 1 September 2010, 60W clear bulbs from 1 September 2011, and all remaining clear bulbs from 1 September 2012.”

Q. Can I get energy-saving bulbs in different shapes?

A. Yes. You can get a variety of shapes including globe, golf ball, twisted and candle shapes.

Q. Do low-energy bulbs start at full brightness or do they need to warm up?

A. Some bulbs produce more than 40% of their claimed light output within the first few seconds, but others take longer to warm up. Megaman Dimmerable lamps have a quick start-up.

Q. Where can I dispose of low-energy light bulbs?

A. Compact fluorescent lamps contain a small amount of mercury, which is a hazardous material, so they must not be thrown in your domestic rubbish bin. You can dispose of used bulbs at more than 90% of civil amenity sites.

GW supplies has a wide range of energy saving bulbs and because they can buy in bulk they can offer excellent prices.
