LED lighting is the most recent advancement in the field of lighting. The efficiency of energy and the long longevity of LED technology has the potential to change the way companies brighten their buildings through a reduction in the expense of electricity as well as the overall use of energy.

What is LED lighting?

LED is the abbreviation in for light-emitting diode. A semiconductor device that produces light using a process known as electroluminescence. When you transmit an electric charge through the semiconductor material, it releases visible light. This is why an LED is in complete contrast to a photovoltaic device that is the type of cells used in solar arrays that transform visible light to electricity.

We've heard about the science that lies behind LEDs for a long time. They have been instrumental in the development of transistors made of solid state LED technology has helped launch an astronaut to the moon and enabled the development and portable radios!

In the 1960s In the early 60s, a young researcher employed by General Electric developed the first LEDs in the early 60s. The first companies used them as indicators for circuit boards. They gained fame for their endurance and energy efficient. A lot of municipalities employed their second-generation LEDs that became available in the 1980s and 90s, to replace the traditional incandescent bulb used in streetlights. There was a lot of experimentation using LEDs as an alternative to fluorescent LED light bulbs on outdoor signs.

We are currently working with the 3rd generation of LEDs. The current generation lasts for longer and is stronger, is more efficient and efficient than other sources of light. Many commercial, industrial and residential establishments are using LEDs in a variety of uses.

The advantages of LED Lighting

1. Long Lifespan

Comparatively to the time-to-life of your typical incandescent light bulb, the life span of LED lights is much more durable. Incandescent bulbs average approximately 1,000 hours. The average lifespan of an LED light is about 50,000 hours. Based on the way you use it, its lifespan could be longer than 100,000 hours. That means the lifespan of LED lights can range anywhere between 6 and 12 years before you have for replacement. It's 40 times more durable than an incandescent light bulb.

Even even if you're using fluorescent lights light sources like metal halide or sodium vapor lamps An LED light lasts at least two or more times as long.

2. Energy Efficiency

One of the most prominent LED lighting benefits can be their efficiency in operation. You can gauge how energy efficient a light source using useful lumens, which refers to the amount of light that the bulb emits for every one unit of power also known as watt, the bulb utilizes. The past was when we used to measure light by the amount of lumens it produced, however the reality is that a few of these light bulbs go to go to waste. LED lighting creates less waste light and produces more effective lumens than other lighting technology.

3. Increased Environmental Performance

It's becoming more important for businesses to be eco-friendly. Consumers are increasingly looking for eco-friendly options. Using green lighting will help businesses reduce their energy consumption and also draw a more socially conscious customer base.

The benefits for the environment of LED lighting extend to their manufacturing processes. The majority of conventional lighting options, such as bulbs that use fluorescent lamps and mercury vapor lamps utilize mercury internally to construct their. As a result as they approach at the conclusion of their lives they need special handling. It is not necessary to be concerned regarding any concerns when using LED lights.

4. The ability to operate in cold conditions

Traditional lighting sources aren't a fan of cold temperatures. If temperatures drop lighting sources, especially those with fluorescent bulbs, will require higher voltage to get started and then the intensity of their light decreases.

LED lights are, however have a better performance at colder temperatures, by around five percent. This is the reason why LED lights are the best option for lighting in meat lockers, freezers and cold storage areas as well as refrigeration display case. Their capability to work effectively in cold temperatures also makes them the best option for lighting in parking spaces, lights that are that are used to illuminate the exteriors of buildings, and lighting that are used for outdoor signs.

5. No UV or Heat Emissions

If you've ever had to replace an incandescent light bulb immediately after it has gone out you'll know how hot they are when they're being used. The majority of traditional lighting sources such as incandescent bulbs convert more than 90 percent of their energy to heat, and only 10% of their energy to the actual production of light.

LEDs don't emit much heat, and the majority of the light that they emit is visible. This is one of the reasons medical professionals are considering LEDs as a possible treatment in the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) that is a common affliction in the winter seasons of the year.

They are also ideal to illuminate artworks which will break or degrade in time when exposed to UV Rays.
