A: LED light sources use up to 90% less electricity than standard light sources. They can last beyond ten years. LED lighting provides the most efficient way to save energy and will conserve all natural resources. If LED lighting were to be implemented universally, we would not have the need to build another power plant. LED lighting would drastically eliminate the need for over 30 existing power plants that are now in business today!
A: Incandescent light sources are not energy efficient and has been long faulted as a reason for high electricitycost; not to mention the emission of the greenhouse gases that are far fromeco-friendly. With the advanced lighting technology like CFLs and LEDs being developed at lightning speed (pun intended), there is no need to continue to pay more money to waste more energy by using the ultimately inefficient incandescent lighting sources.
A: An LED Light Bulb is an eco-friendly alternative to an incandescent light bulb. LED Lights house a cluster of ‘light-emitting-diodes’ – or small electronic chips that glow when electricity passes through them – instead of filaments or gases. They do not contain any toxic material, such as mercury that is found in other lightingresources. LED Lighting has a lifespan of up to 100,000 hours and function well as directed light sources.
You can use them indoors. They are ideal for spotlighting artwork and other materials; this means your prize pieces will not fade because LED Lights do not emit ultraviolet or infrared lighting and won’t cause any damage. You can use them outdoors. Their durability and low maintenance cost makes them useful for lighting sidewalks, driveways, paths, and patios.
The best benefit of all, the up-front expense is so affordable. As with CFLs the cost is offset over time by the decreased utility costs.
LED lights are said to be a safer and healthier light. LED lights do NOT produce any sort of ultraviolet radiation which causes fabric fading, color fading in art, carpeting, and other soft material. There is no flickering or buzzing that many people are sensitive to with fluorescent lights.
Residential and especially commercial and industrial plants, stores, libraries, galleries, and warehouses can immediately benefit from LED lighting.
Up to 100,000 hours. LED lighting are Solid State Devices (SSL – or ‘solid state lighting’). They will never burn out. The life expectancy for SSL lighting is upwards of 50,000 to 100,000 hours or more. This means no maintenance cost for facility workers to replace lights.
No. There is no mercury used in LED light bulbs. And the best part, they can be recycled!
