Short description

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor chip that emits light when conducting a current. LED's present many advantages over incandescent light sources, including longer lifetime, lower energy consumption, environmentally friendly improved robustness, smaller size, faster switching, and greater durability and reliability.

Information

LED Basics and Background
 

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor chip that emits light when conducting a current. LED's present many advantages over incandescent light sources, including longer lifetime, lower energy consumption, environmentally friendly improved robustness, smaller size, faster switching, and greater durability and reliability.
 

Longer Lifetime

LED bulbs last over 50,000 hours – 40 times longer than incandescent, 35 times longer than halogen and 20 times longer than compact fluorescent lamps
 

Lower Energy Consumption

LED's save 80-90% on energy usage compared to standard dichroic low-wattage halogen and incandescent bulbs, lowering electricity bills. An 5W LED MR16 bulb generates as much light as a 9W CFL & 35W halogen. A 5W LED down light generates as much light as a 2x13W CFL down light and 75W incandescent bulb. Traditional incandescent bulbs waste 98% of their energy producing wasted heat. On the other hand, LED bulbs produce very little heat in order to maintain brilliant light and even assist in cooling costs. Halogen bulbs have caused many accidental fires because of the heat they produce. Led lighting makes it much safer to put lights in reach of tiny hands, for households with children.

Durability

LED bulbs have no filament or tube to break, making very durable and reliable. Even if you happen to drop or mishandle one, you will not be left with a mess of broken or shattered glass. Traditional incandescent bulbs can become a hazard when broken. If a CFL bulb were to break, a portion of mercury from said bulb will have to settle before cleaning the mess.
 

Environmentally Friendly

Since very little heat is produced, it can reduce interior temperatures by 1-2 degrees, lowering air-conditioning costs and CO2 emissions. LED lighting is also much safer for the environment because of it being mercury-free and not producing IR or UV rays, which can be harmful to humans. In other words, LED lamps are the greenest and most environmentally-friendly source of light on the market. CLF bulbs have been stated as a solution to the inefficiencies of incandescence, yet they are all made with mercury, thus making them hardly an environmentally sound solution after all.
 

Superior Color and Comfort

Clear light and high marks on the Color Rendering Index (CRI), which indicates accurate true color reproduction. Meaning LED lights produce light that is more pleasing and relaxing, increasing comfort and mood. Tired of annoying flickering and headaches caused by compact fluorescent bulbs? Change to LED bulbs and start LED lighting in your life.

Picture

 

 

The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that rapid adoption of LED lighting systems in the U.S. over the next 20 years can deliver savings of about $265 billion. Reduce lighting electricity demand by 33% in 2027. It is time to save green, while keeping green in your wallet. We have and understand the technology, let's put it to work.
