What is LED Lighting?
LED lighting is a fast-growing market. It won't be long until LED lighting completely replaces conventional lighting. Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are used instead of a filament or gas like in incandescent or halogen bulbs. LEDs are solid state devices, so there are no moving parts, chemicals, or gases involved, meaning they are very safe, reliable and efficient.
What are the Benefits of LED Lighting?
LEDs operate at a much higher efficiency than conventional lighting, running on about 8-15% of the power used by an incandescent bulb. This means that LED lighting will save you more money over time than any other type of lighting.
Incandescent and halogen bulbs run hot, whereas LEDs run cool, so there is no risk of overheating.
LED bulbs turn on instantly unlike energy saver bulbs which take a while to reach their full brightness.
There is no glass to break in most LED bulbs, which makes them safer and more durable.
LEDs are ideal for use in applications that are subject to frequent on-off cycling, unlike fluorescent lamps that burn out more quickly when cycled frequently.
The manufacturer has good control over the colour of light output.
LEDs do not contain mercury like fluorescent lamps.
The lifespan of a good quality LED bulb far exceeds that of any other type of bulb. Our bulbs are rated to last between 25,000 and 50,000 hours, meaning they can last for 25 years or more. Although they are more expensive to purchase, they will pay for themselves many times over in their long lifetime.
