CFL vs LED light bulbs: which is better? Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are a version of the long tube fluorescent lights. They use less electricity than the traditional light bulbs. Moreover, an ENERGY STAR-rated CFL uses about one-fourth of the energy and lasts longer than a traditional incandescent that puts out the same amount of light. It contains mercury, which is a toxic heavy metal, which is harmful to both health and the environment.
Will the Low Voltage LED lamps work with my current transformer? Low Voltage LED lamps are compatible with magnetic transformers utilized with VAC lighting. If you have an electronic transformer with a single LED lamp might not work due to its very low power consumption. To work properly, most of the electronic transformers need a minimum load more than the 3-watt utilized by our LED spot lights. While connecting some LED lamps to a single transformer, the load augments to such a point where the utilization of an electronic transformer is acceptable.
Another fun idea to add to your outdoor oasis is solar-powered fiber optic gazing balls. These unique ornaments add loveliness to your garden at night and even in the day. The solar collector gathers energy during the day to power the fiber optics in the gazing ball at night. At dusk, the fiber optics illuminates the gazing ball and adds instant ambiance to any garden. These typically will remain running for 4-6 hours a night.
