LED LightingLED products are starting to take over the lighting market due to their extremely good efficiencies. LED's create more light per Watt of power than any other type of lights found in the market. Under ideal conditions, LED's may use as little as 20% of the power to provide the same amount of light in comparison to halogen globes. That results in a massive reduction to your electricity bill.
LED products also have a lifetime of 50,000 hours. That is an amazing 50 times more than a regular incandescent bulb. LED lighting will benefit you in every way while helping to save our environment. Most of all, they pay for themselves in under a few years. You have nothing to lose. Switch to LED lighting today and save!
LED TechnologyLED's, also known as light emitting diodes have the ability to release photons (light energy) when an electric current is passed through them.
It is only recently with improvements in LED technology that LED's have the ability to produce sufficient light to be used as a common lighting sources for the household and industry.
LED's are quickly starting to steal the lighting market today. In Australia for example, you will already notice the large number of traffic signals that have been converted to LED's. This is because they are a great investment in terms of reduced energy consumption and reliability. You have nothing to lose by switching to LED's to light your environment.
High EfficiencyLED's emit the highest lumen output per watt of power in comparison to any other light source. Up to 80% more efficient than halogen lights. For every 1 halogen light you run, you can have 4 or 5 LED replacements. This energy savings especially becomes prominent when a large number of lights are used. Imagine the savings on your electricity bill when replacing more than 20 halogen downlights or even a 100 halogen downlights running 8 hours a day in your business. An immense amount of savings can be achieved.
Long Lasting & Voltage Surge ResistantLED's last for 50,000 hours. That equates to 17 years if used for 8 hours daily. At this rate, you would never have to change a LED globe. LED's are also very resistant to voltage spikes and constant turning on/off. You can turn them on/off numerous times a day without affecting its lifespan. These power management features results in LED's being a very good investment where you never have to worry about the frequent blowouts that occur in halogens, fluoroscents and incandescents lights.
Mercury FreeAbsolutely mercury free unlike fluorescents. Mercury is considered to be a pollutant that damages the environment and is found in all fluroscents light products. Mercury vapor can also be a dangerous inhalant and this becomes a risk especially when fluoroscent tubes or bulbs are accidentally dropped and broken.
Pleasant Light ColourLED's are available in pleasant warm white, cool white and white light colours. The warm white color is very similar to a warm white halogen making it a good replacement.
No Fireproofing RequiredLED's operate at a much lower temperature in comparison to a halogen. Hence for downlights, there is no need to worry about using fire proof hoods. The low heat generation can greatly help reduce the risk of fires.
Minimal Heat Dissipation. However it is always recommended to use fireproofing for increased safety. It hardly adds any extra costs and its worth it.
The minimal heat dissipation helps reduce cooling costs of your home or business. When using halogen downlights for example, a large amount of heat is dissipated into the roof space. This adds stress to ducted cooling systems located in the roof and hence reduces cooling efficiency. LED downlights on the other hand operate at around 60 to 100 degrees less than halogens and this results in a considerably less amount of heat dissipation.
