A question on LED lights in which we replace the Edison Screw bulb CFL or floresecent tube. Do we need to rewire or do any other improvements to the electrical system or housing?
for CFL, plug and play. If may dimmer then dont use the dimmer unless dimmer compatible ang LED bulb
LED's are sensitive to heat so you might need to modify if kulob ang bulb
LED's use less power. In some cars with whats called a CANBUS system, there's a system wherein the car computer looks at the amount of amps flowing and if a high amp incandescent is replaced with a low amp led, the low amount of amps fools the computer into thinking that there is a broken bulb and meron warning light. Solution is to add a resistor or use CANBUS compatible LED's with a built in resistor to increase amps. However the resistor + LED tends to nullify the power savings. Its usually not relevant for houses however unless you have a smart house that uses the same system. Pang dagdag info lang.
for tube, it depends. AFAIK most LED tubes need you to rewire. Remove the starter and the ballast. Just connect the 220v straight to the receptacles. Better look at the instructions para sure
Personally since mahal ang LED tubes, I would rather convert LED tubes to an e27 socket
Since LED bulbs use less amps, technically you could downgrade
the wiring and the fuses/breakers
Some LED bulb brands like GES have a very faint glow even if naka off if grounded ang wiring so fix it first. Firefly wala
