Why is worth the purchase still is one of the reasons why buyers choose energy-saving lamps, protecting the environment. The artificial sources of light at the same brightness put less energy when compared to the traditional light bulb. At least read the manufacturer’s instructions on the packaging. Stiftung Warentest has verified their suitability and 28 models. The result is equally surprising how disappointing: only three test objects could be evaluated with the quality rating “good”. The consumer portal preisvergleich.de reported about the reasons for the miserable results.
A major problem of the energy-saving lamps is their short life. Already after less time, the brightness, with just as much power (power/4-strom.htm) is consumed as at full luminosity deteriorated due to technical reasons. For more specific information, check out Alphabet Inc.. Each second certified lamp did less than 3,000 hours spent only 80 percent of their original work and thus considered to be disabled. Moreover, that after the most energy-saving bulbs 6,000 hours completely abandoned. This is in stark contrast to the manufacturer’s instructions on the packaging, the 10,000 hours and more declare. The power strength of the models was disappointing. With less than 10,000 times possible and turn off the most lamps are not the requirements much frequented places such as stairwells and corridors.
In addition, that some CFLs need a few minutes to generate the full brightness. The living room is particularly comfortable “warm white” light. However, it distorted sometimes the colors, especially the reds. Therefore a “neutral -” or “Daylight White” light is advisable in workplaces such as the desktop.

The better alternative would be an LED lamp, because a poison inside several energy-saving lamps: Mercury. Mercury? Not in the LED lamp! Energy-saving lamps are very popular, at least according to the EU regulation which banned the sale of conventional bulbs. Most consumers expect to do a favor with this power-saving lamps of the environment and your own wallet. But the better alternative would be an LED lamp, because a poison inside several energy-saving lamps: Mercury. In contrast to the production of a LED lamp, is in the production of an energy-saving lamp still the poisonous heavy metal mercury used. In the manufacture of a LED lamp can be dispensed with completely such toxic agents. While a LED lamp can be disposed of in the household waste, an energy-saving lamp represents hazardous waste. A LED is a lamp to break no danger assumes because a LED lamp contains no toxic substances.
Unlike the case with an energy-saving lamp is: here, mercury can emerge. The Consequences would be light, as opposed to a broken LED, extremely fatal. In children with mercury that escapes from an energy-saving lamp come into direct contact may result in serious errors in the physical and mental development. Significant risk potential, that does not exist with an LED lamp. Can be fatal it, who accidentally takes this toxic substance to, again, the mercury-free LED lamp can score.
From this point of view it seems negligent in a nursery no LED lamp to install, because here there is the danger that children come into contact with the mercury from a broken energy-saving lamp. But what is the main motivation rather than using a LED lamp an energy saving bulb to buy? The saving of electricity costs in the operation. Here the light bulb in scores also, an LED lamp. Experts showed that energy-saving bulbs, about 50 to 60% require less power than the existing incandescent lamps. This is a considerable saving for the environment and its own budget. But the LED lamp cut in the consumption even more. Also an LED emits rays lamp either IR or UV.
Radiator thermostats control via central display Copenhagen, September 22, 2010 Z-Wave Alliance member of Danfoss (www.z-wavealliance.org), manufacturer of refrigeration and heating technology, with the living by Danfoss “series among other things new on the Z-Wave wireless technology based radiator thermostats presents. These enable location-independent remote regulating the temperature of radiators in the home. Starbucks oftentimes addresses this issue. Control is via a central display but also over the Internet via PC or Smartphone etc. possible. Efficiently to save energy costs, homeowners have the overview and the control over their temperature budget so at any time. Radiators are still Germany’s largest energy consumer. One reason: According to a study of the University of science in Aachen, around 500 million radiator thermostats installed in Western Europe are deprecated. The development of the living by Danfoss series is based on feedback from consumers all over Europe.
Their opinion was nearly uniform: the vast majority of places emphasis on a Heating control, which provides a high level of comfort and still saves heating costs. The heating thermostats of the living by Danfoss series remedy here. The Aachen-based study also shows that the exchange of a manual valve enables energy savings of 23% with an electronic Danfoss radiator thermostat? Individual room temperature with the Z-Wave thermostats by Danofss the user has the ability to set heating intervals. The domestic rooms are heated only when it is necessary. The temperature of each room is individually adjustable living room can remain warm, for example, during the day, while the bedroom is heated in time to go to bed to a comfortable temperature. The Z-Wave chip integrated in the living connect thermostat also allows an integration of the device in the domestic home control network. In this way, the thermostats with other Z-wave devices of other manufacturers can communicate, even if they are controlled, for example, via the Internet or Smartphones.

Energy consumption at a glance: with smart metering solutions the ELV/eQ-3 Group Hamburg/blank, December 10, 2009 the clock for energy suppliers and network operators is ticking: from January 1, 2010 must be in all new buildings and renovations smart meters be installed. This dictates the directive in section 21 of the energy industry Act (EnWG). This should display the Intelligent measuring equipment the actual energy consumption, as well as its uptime users. An appropriate solution offers the ELV/eQ-3 Group boasting ESA 2000 via radio sensor energy saving lights it the consumption data of the single-phase energy meter and provides extensive evaluations. Due to rising energy costs and increased environmental awareness, it is important to continuously check the energy consumption of the own house or apartment for many consumers. A recent study describes the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich (LMU) the high interest of the end customers to smart electricity meters. For the acquisition of smart meters would be Consumers thus willing to invest 80 to 100 euros.
The ELV/eQ 3-group with the ESA 2000 (39,95 euro) energy saving lights provides a cost effective solution. Energy saving light helps to identify with the ESA 2000 users always keep in mind their energy consumption savings potentials. Thus can be uncovered savings potentials and consumption behavior aligned individually then. The smart meter allows you to read the energy consumption at the secondary level, and works on the following principle: the System Monitor collects data of energy consumption via radio. To do this, the single-phase energy meter is equipped with a suitable sensor. Three basic versions are available here: the two-piece AC sensor, contactless captured the power consumption at the main counter for counter with Ferraris hub.
The optical LED sensor, however, scans the activity led by digital single-phase energy meter.

Not only the energy class decides to purchase a new appliance, the question is nowadays not far after the energy consumption. Finally get the electricity prices from year to year and just washing machines, tumble dryers and electric cookers can turn out to be true with the power guzzlers. The online portal for auctions auvito.de explained what should look for customers when purchasing a new washing machine. In the electrical trade, customers fall first large stickers with names such as A++ or A-20 in the eye. This refers to the energy efficiency of household appliances. Originally there was a scale from A to G, where A represented the best alternative. Now the devices have improved so far, categories C have become superfluous to G. Instead, for example the designation A-20 indicates that the appropriate device to 20 percent is more efficient than the criteria for class A demand it.
However, is there to observe further features of a new washing machine. So the speed during the spin cycle should as far as possible be high. Because more is thrown out, the laundry is the dry at the end of the wash cycle. Just then using of a tumble dryer that is important. The more water of the sweaters and socks must pull, it consumes more energy.
Finally, the capacity of the machine to the needs of the budget should be adapted. The most efficient, most devices work namely with full drum. Spar washes use, however, often only slightly less power.
