Thinking Green: First dimmable LED bulb -Pharox60
LED (light emitting diodes) is a form of lighting that does not use a filament such as found in the standard light bulb. They Offer More Efficient Technology than Incandescent Lights and CFLs. According to HowStuffWorks.com, LED bulbs are lit solely by the movement of electrons. Unlike incandescents, they have no filament that will burn out; and unlike CFLs, they contain no mercury or other toxic substances. Proponents say LEDs can last some 60 times longer than incandescents and 10 times longer than CFLs. And unlike incandescents, which generate a lot of waste heat, LEDs don’t get especially hot and use a much higher percentage of electricity for directly generating light.
LED bulbs also:
• Long lifetime: 25 years (based on 4 hours average use per day).
• Have no UV radiation
• Do not produce hazardous waste
The Pharox60, the first true replacement for the incandescent bulb. The design of the Pharox60 bulb resembles a traditional incandescent bulb and fits US residential fixtures, allowing consumers to easily make the shift to more energy efficient lighting without sacrificing light quality or aesthetics. The bulb features technologically advanced dimming capabilities and a warm, soft glow that sets it apart from previous LED bulbs. The Pharox60 is made from non-toxic materials and may be safely recycled with other metals and glass.
This bulb is only sold on line so for more information on a Pharox60 bulb go to www.mypharox.com.
