The disruption in technology has changed the way we live. As the saying goes, in this world “Nothing is permanent except change”. What seemed to be a harmless household product such as our fluorescent light bulbs, later on proved to be harmful in the long run. Years after the fluorescent was discovered, it was found that it gives off a small amount of ultraviolet light. This small amount can add up though. Eight hours of exposure under a fluorescent light is already equivalent to an hour of sun exposure so you can just imagine the years of using fluorescent lighting at home .
Further studies about the use of fluorescent and our health also showed the association of conditions like migraine, stress, mood swings, as well as eye strain due to prolonged exposure to florescent light.
Fluorescent and the Environment
There are also environmental issues connected to the use of fluorescent light bulbs. For those who don’t know yet, fluorescent contains a small amount of mercury, which means that the careless disposal can affect the ecological system.
These studies have prompted most households to switch into the use of CFL during the last few decades. They were considered less harmful but they still contained fluorescent, so mercury is still present.
But now, the invention of LED has saved us from the long term use of fluorescent. Nowadays, you will rarely see a household that still uses fluorescent light. We just wish though that commercial establishments would be more than encouraged to do the same.
If households easily converted to the use of LED lights from fluorescent, that is because a house only needs a few light bulbs. But commercial offices were less responsive because they question the luminosity of LED lights.
Larger commercial spaces require brighter lights and if broken down to lumens versus floor space, the fluorescent has proven to be a cheaper source.
LED light tube
Recent innovation in LED lighting has given a solution to the luminosity factor. It introduces the LED Light Tube, which gives commercial offices the lumens they require minus the toxic effects. Quite affordable, too. The LED light tube gives the same high light output of fluorescent with the benefits of LED technology.
CD-R King, your one-stop media provider, has exerted more effort to help protect the environment by bringing this innovation closer to the public. Not only do they have a lot of stocks, they offer the LED light tube technology at a very affordable price so that more people can afford it, especially the business who might have to overhaul their lighting system.
CD-R King LED light tubes are available in T-8 10watts (php120), T-5 18watts (Php150) and T-5 20watts (Php200). These light tubes can last up to 50,000 hours. These LED light tubes may be purchased with its casing or as a replacement tube.
These are available in all CD-R King branches nationwide. For more updates, Like/follow them on FB: /cdrkingph.
