Major difference between CFL and LED Light Bulbs

CFLs stands for Compact Fluorescent Lamps. Although they provide more light than other old school incandescent light bulb, they illuminate less than LEDs. Let me tell you that CFLs are made of argon and contain very little amounts of mercury. Still, now it is used in many offices, homes, shops and schools.

The most modern form of an LED bulb, LEDs stands for Light Emitting Diode. It is the largest invention of the lighting world, that gives more light than all other incandescent light bulbs. Currently, these bulbs are being used most. So now let us tell you the difference between CFL and LED light bulbs.



1. Life Cycle

The life cycle of a CFL is only 8000 hours. While the life cycle of LED light bulbs 50000+ hours in comparison.



2. Less power consumable

LED light bulb consumes less power than CFL.


3. Expensive

Apart from this, LED light bulbs is slightly more expensive than CFL when it comes to price.


4. Durability

Even though the LED light bulb is a little bit expensive but it is more durable and lasts longer.



5. Size

Modern LED light bulb is so much better and environment-friendly than CFL lamp and other light bulbs. Therefore, the Indian Government was also prepared for a project regarding this. It's called "Ujjwala Yojana". 

Under this project, people can buy an LED light bulb from the electricity department at a cheap price, but there is no such plan regarding CFL lamp.
