Austin-based company helps GE make light bulb breakthrough

The Austin carpet cleaners of WOW Total Cleaning have learned of a major innovation in light bulb technology.

Nuventix, an Austin-based thermal management company has helped General Electric make a major breakthrough that will change the future of the light bulb industry forever: household LED light bulbs.

LED light bulbs have been in the works for a long while now, but the company had been previously unable to give LED bulbs enough longevity to be feasible without an adequate cooling system. The challenge was that including a cooling system would greatly increase bulb size. Nuventix’s synthetic jet will allow LED bulbs to be cooled while retaining a normal light bulb size.

The new LED light bulbs will run on 27 watts of power and will be strong enough to replace 100 watt incandescent bulbs. They will be unveiled at the LightFair trade show in Las Vegas later this week.
