Conceptos básicos de iluminación 

Today’s energy-efficient lighting comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and wattages for almost every business use. Take a look at the lighting products below, followed by suggested uses and energy-saving tips, and learn how you can light up for less — without sacrificing style, comfort or personal safety.

Lámpara fluorescente compacta (CFL)

The most common type of energy-efficient light bulb, CFLs can fit into just about any fixture and serve most of your lighting needs, including those designed for dimming and three-way lighting. Screw-in CFLs fit most standard light sockets, and pin-based CFLs plug into specially-designed fixtures.

Compared to a traditional incandescent bulb:

  • CFLs use 75% less energy.

  • CFLs can last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

  • Many ENERGY STAR®-qualified CFLs now turn on instantly as well, so there’s no waiting for a bulb to warm up.

Diodo emisor de luz (LED)

An LED is a semi-conductor device that emits visible light when conducting current. Efficient, durable and long-lasting, LEDs save energy and money on accent, landscape and holiday lighting.

Célula fotoeléctrica

Photocells use a sensor to automatically turn a light off when enough daylight is detected, and turns the fixture on when it becomes dark. Motion detection and sound activation sensors are also available.

Sistema de célula solar (o sistema de células fotovoltaicas)

Las células solares convierten la luz solar en electricidad para generar energía solar. Considere la opción de combinar células solares con productos de iluminación de bajo consumo energético como LED y CFL, como opciones de iluminación gratuitas o de bajo costo, que resultan ideales para paisajismo y otros usos al aire libre.
