FSL Lighting is a brand of Foshan Lighting Corporation of China, established in 1958. Foshan has built an international reputation of producing quality LEDs at a price you can afford!
The FSL brand is exported around the world including: Europe, America, Southeast Asia more than 20 countries. Last year FSL sold over 100 Million LED light bulbs around the world, and now you can get these in New Zealand.
LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are small sources of light that work when the movement from electrons illuminate semiconductor material.
LED bulbs differ from traditional incandescent bulbs in the way they produce light. While old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs passed electricity through a filament, LEDs produce light through the use of a semi-conductor that emits light energy when an electrical current is passed through it.
The longer lasting technology is usually found in traffic lights and exit signs, but now consumers can find options like the FSL LED Lighting range, suitable for housing.
To achieve the same brightness, LED consumes only 15% of electricity compared to incandescent lamp and 1/2 to CFL (Fluorescent Lamp). This does not only mean a savings on your power bill but also a substantial reduction of CO2 emissions.
Averagely, there will be 30 bulbs in a common family with the average power of 60w/bulb, and average usage of 3 hours/day.
Switching to LED, you will save your power bill by more than $400 in one year.
Switching to LED, you will reduce CO2 emission by more than 200kg in one year.
LED bulbs last up to 25 to 50 times as long as incandescent, and 4 to 5 times of compact fluorescents.
Unlike Fluorescent Bulbs, which usually takes several minutes to warm up, LED reaches its full brightness instantly after being switched on.
LED bulbs have a low running temperature compared to normal incandescent bulbs, making it safer around children and easier to change.
Fluorescent Bulbs contain mercury as vapor inside the glass tubing. Most Fluorescent Bulbs contain 3–5 mg per bulb, with the bulbs labeled "Eco-friendly" containing as little as 1 mg. Mercury is poisonous, even these small amounts are a concern for landfills and waste incinerators where the mercury from lamps may be released and contribute to air and water pollution. There is no mercury used during the whole manufacturing process of LED.
