Energy Savers
Superior Electric Company, Inc.
At Superior Electric we offer several opportunities for energy
savings.  Here are just a few of our recommendations...
the same amount of visible light, CFLs use approximately one-fifth to one-third the
electric power and can last eight to fifteen times longer.  While CFLs do have a higher
purchase price than incandescents they can save over five times their purchase price
in electricity costs over the lamp's lifetime.
CFLs
A compact fluorescent lamp (or CFL) is a fluorescent
lamp designed to replace the less efficient incandescent
bulbs. The lamps use a tube which is curved or folded
and have a compact electronic ballast located in the
base so that it fits into the space of an incandescent
bulb.  Compared to general-service incandescents giving
LEDs
Light-emitting diodes (or LEDs) can be assembled into a
lamp for use in most lighting fixtures. LED lamps have a
lifespan and electrical efficiency that is several times
better than incandescent lamps, and significantly better
than most fluorescent lamps, with some chips able to
produce more than 100 lumens per watt.  The average
incandescent bulb emits only 15 lumens per watt!  LED
technology is rapidly evolving, showing significant
promise in efficiency, color consistency, color quality, and in the ability to produce more
reliable light over time.  The ways that LEDs can be used for general illumination is
expanding as the technology improves.
Occupational Sensors
Tired of the kids leaving lights on all over the
house?  Fed up with fumbling for the light switch in
the laundry room when your hands are full?  You
can use an occupational sensor to eliminate both
problems.  Designed to fit in the same location as
your original light switch, an occupation sensor
detects when someone is in the room and keeps
the lights on until they leave.
