The unique lighting characteristics of energy-saving lamps with high luminous efficiency and long service life have made this kind of lighting products a typical object that highlights the theme of the era of energy saving and emission reduction and is widely used, and is also a key product for lighting manufacturers.

The working principle of the energy-saving lamp is to heat the lamp filament through the ballast. At about 1160K, the filament starts to emit electrons. The electrons collide with argon atoms to produce inelastic collisions. After the argon atoms collide, they gain energy and hit mercury atoms. After the atom absorbs energy, it transitions to produce ionization, emits ultraviolet rays, and ultraviolet rays excite phosphors to emit light. Because the temperature of the filament when the fluorescent lamp is working is about 1160K, which is much lower than the temperature of the incandescent lamp, which is 2200K-2700K, its life span is also greatly improved. More than 5000 hours.

Therefore, energy-saving lamps fully and reasonably mobilize most of the energy to achieve a double breakthrough in light efficiency and life. It is this characteristic of energy-saving lamps that makes them a key marketing product for lighting manufacturers.

Features and choices of energy-saving lamps

With the shortage of power resources and the strengthening of consumers' awareness of environmental protection, energy-saving lamps occupy a large proportion in the lighting market and are favored by many consumers, which has also brought the development of lighting manufacturers to a new level.

The brightness and lifespan of energy-saving lamps are superior to that of ordinary incandescent bulbs, and they are especially well-known for saving electricity. Energy-saving lamps are U-shaped, spiral-shaped, petal-shaped, etc., with power ranging from 3 watts to 40 watts. The prices of energy-saving lamps of different models, specifications and origins vary greatly. Energy-saving lamps can generally be installed in lamps such as downlights, chandeliers, and ceiling lamps. Energy-saving lamps are generally not suitable for use in high temperature and high humidity environments. The use of energy-saving lamps in bathrooms and kitchens should be avoided as much as possible.

To buy energy-saving lamps, go to a guaranteed lighting market, choose well-known brands, and confirm that the product packaging is complete and the logo is complete. The outer packaging usually explains the life, color rendering and correct installation position of the energy-saving lamp. Energy-saving lamps are divided into two types: halogen powder and three-base toner. The overall performance of the three-base toner is superior to that of the halogen powder. Some businesses sell the halogen powder as the three-base toner to deceive consumers.
