LEDs are known to reduce our electricity bills. But we can’t have it all over our house, can we? Think again! It is the 21st century and everything can be made possible. The same is applicable to LEDs not only for your TV but also for your bulbs. General Electric is coming up with a 27 watt A â€“ 19 bulb that’ll replace the traditional ones in your house. Recently the news of similar developments by Philips came to focus and now itâ€™s the GE.
This exciting news was revealed in Las Vegas on the worldâ€™s largest light trade show. It will come with GE’S synthetic jet technology that is developed along with the Nuventix company.
You may ask why should we adopt an LED bulb at all. I will just say that you will find out as you read further.
Firstly and most importantly it promises to last up to 22.8 years if the user does not extend beyond 3 hours per day. It is all set to enter the Canadian market in the initial months of 2013. Adding to its credit are additional features like its capacity of more than 1600 lumens, uniform omnidirectional light distribution, and 3000K color temperature. The price of this unique device has not been decided as of yet. Now isnâ€™t that just unimaginable? Something that we always wanted is going to be available to us from next year. It is a great deal of reduction in price without compromise with quality. So its time you say goodbye to the age-old 100-watt bulbs in your house.
â€œOur innovation team has tackled a previously insurmountable technical challenge: cooling a 100-watt A-19 shaped replacement LED bulb without making it physically bigger,â€ says Steve Briggs, general manager of LED systems, GE Lighting.
