How do LED lights work?
LEDs, or Light Emitting Diodes, are electronic light sources that work by the effect of electroluminescence. Electroluminescence is a non-thermal conversion of electrical energy into light energy.
What are the advantages?
LED lighting offers a multitude of advantages over traditional light sources. These advantages include lower electricity consumption, longer lifespan, higher resilience, no ultraviolet and infrared radiation, lower heat output, and smaller size.
What is the lifespan of a LED bulb?
When properly installed, LED bulbs will very rarely burn out. Compared to traditional light sources, they are superior regarding lifetime.
How efficient are LED bulbs?
They are roughly 85% more efficient than traditional low-voltage lighting. The output of light sources is light and heat; the higher the ratio of light to heat, the more efficient the lamp.
What is the color of the light from a LED?
The most common LED light colors used are warm white (which is similar to the color of a traditional incandescent light), cool white (which is similar to moonlight), and daylight white (which is similar to typical daylight).
Why should I choose LED lamps over the cheaper, traditional bulbs?
When considering your options, think of the true cost of the light – including the cost of energy, replacement, and maintenance – rather than merely the initial price of the bulb and fixture. LED lights use much less energy than traditional bulbs; the saved electricity cost can typically pay a residential customer back in less than 2 years. They also have a much longer lifespan – imagine not changing your bulbs for the next 20 years! For commercial applications, the long lifespan means lower replacement costs and maintenance fees. For commercial properties, after taking into consideration reduced maintenance costs, the return of investment time for can be less than 1 year! LED lighting has no harmful ultraviolet and infrared rays. They also contain no mercury and are much more eco-friendly.
