Day 199 of My Italian Learning Journal*

Several years ago I replaced all the candescent light bulbs in our house with compact fluorescent lamp bulbs (CFL). When some of the CLF bulbs burned out I started to replace them with LED bulbs. The latter type is now advertised as more economical to use and as emitting less heat. Since the CFL's contain mercury I often wondered why they had gained such popularity, other than they used less electricity. The CFL's do not last as long as advertised, but the reason may be that they are turned off and on too much in day to day use. (Grammar corrections for my Italian practice script below are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Le lampadine LED utilizzano meno energia elettrica rispetto alle lampadine CFL.
    The LED light bulbs use less electricity than CFL bulbs.
  • Le lampadine LED emettono meno calore rispetto al tipo di lampadine di CFL.
    The LED light bulbs also emit less heat than the CFL type of light bulbs.
  • Sostituzione di una singola lampadina Interrutore con un LED permetterebbe di risparmiare circa $288 in 20 anni.
    Replacing a single candescent bulb with an LED would save about $288 in 20 years.
  • Moltiplicare per 10 lampadine e che รจ un risparmio di $2.880.
    Multiply that by 10 bulbs and that is a saving of $2,880.
