Changing a light bulb is one of the easiest yet most effective ways of reducing energy consumption and cutting carbon emissions. Simply replacing an incandescent bulb with an energy saving alternative can cut electricity use by up to 80%. The Energy Saving Trust believes that lighting accounts for 8% of household electricity costs in the UK which means there is great potential for substantial energy and money savings.
Instead of having the traditional small bulbs, battery operated fairy lights now come with LED lights. This type of light has a distinct glow that is crisper than the old incandescent light sources. The reason is that the color of LED lights comes from within whereas the bulb coating sets the color of most incandescent lights. It is no surprise to see indoor fairy lights that have LED lights, instead of the old bulbs. After all, LED lights are far more superior than traditional lighting source. Its advantages include lower energy consumption, more compact size, faster switching on display patterns and greater durability. Perhaps the only downside to LED lights is that they are relatively more expensive than traditional bulbs.
Where LED lights really shine though is in light output and electrical efficiency. A typical incandescent bulb produces about 17 light lumens per watt at best. Most of the electrical energy fed to the bulb is radiated as heat, resulting in a very inefficient and wasteful light source. LEDs, on the other hand, produce anywhere from 60 to 100 lumens per watt. Very little energy fed into the LED is radiated as heat, resulting in a very efficient light source that can produce a lot more light than an incandescent while using far less electrical power. Considering the importance of navigation lighting and the need to conserve power on a boat, this is an extremely attractive benefit. You can use less power, yet produce a much stronger nav light signal, improving your visibility to other boats while reducing power consumption at the same time. On smaller boats, you could run a basic set of navigation lights all night and still not deplete your batteries. Increased safety and increased efficiency, all from a simply change in light sources!
