Led Lighting

The light-emitting diode (LED) is arguable today's most energy efficient and fast developing lighting technologies. Quality LED lights last longer, are more durable, and offer comparable or better light quality than other types of luminaire.

Energy Savings

Worldwide, around 20% of electricity is consumed in lighting. LED can make a big impact on your energy use. LED is a highly energy efficient lighting technology, and has the potential to fundamentally change the future of lighting; most LEDs use at least 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting.

Savings really ratchet up in specific areas such as warehouses and workshops, where lights are left on for longer periods.

How LEDs are Different

Direction: LEDs produce light in a unidirectional way, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers that would trap some light. This feature makes LEDs more efficient for many uses such as high bays. With other types of lighting, the light must be diffused to the desired direction and roughly half of the light may never leave the fitting.

Heat: LEDs emit very little heat. In comparison, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat and CFLs release about 80% of their energy as heat.

Lumens: Contrary to common belief, wattage is not an indication of brightness, but a measurement of how much energy the luminaire draws. For older lighting such as incandescent or fluorescent, there is a conventional correlation between the watts drawn and the brightness, but for LEDs, watts are not a great predictor of how bright the light will be.
