LED Lighting

With all of the media attention given to environmental issues These days, it is widely known that the electricity that we use everyday is contributing Toward harmful greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. If you believe in global warming, Then you realize this is one of the issues that is exacerbated by these greenhouse gas emissions. While some people lead their lives not worried about these issues, there are many people who Are making the small contributions that they can toward alleviating this problem. Using LED lighting is one of these methods. For those out there who have never heard of it, LED stands for Light-Emitting Diodes and is a type of low emission lighting that doesn't contribute to these problems? The only problem is that it is not yet a part of the mainstream lighting market, but it is growing fast. Like anything of this nature


Why Choose LED lamps over CFLs?

LED lamps typically use less power (watts) per unit of light generated (lumens). A good LED lamp can generate twice as many lumens per watt as a CFL (50-100+ versus 40-80).
- less greenhouse gas emissions from power plants
- lower electric bills

LED lamps last much longer than CFLs, as much as 10x longer (50,000 hours versus 5,000 hours
- less frequent lamp purchasing/changing, especially important for hard-to-reach lamp locations

LED lamps generate less heat than CFLs.
- decreased load on Air Conditioning systems
- reduced danger of burns from touching lamps
- reduced fire hazards

LED lamps typically are RoHS compliant, meaning that they have no or at most negligible amounts of hazardous substances within the scope of that compliance (lead, cadmium, mercury, CFLs on the other hand all have 1mg-5mg of Mercury (even more in tubular Fluorescent lamps), and no doubt many people are not properly disposing of spent CFLs, resulting in Mercury making its way into the environment, with serious consequences. And if a CFL were to break in your house you might be exposed to Mercury.
- Virtually no risk of environmental contamination
- no risk of personal exposure to hazardous materials


Advantages:

· A very low energy consumption level. This contributes directly to savings on your light bill!
· Lasts much longer than traditional lighting. It has been known to last up to 50,000 hours. That's way more than any other available lighting type.
· Can easily resist thermal shocks and vibrations. Normal light bulbs are useless when you drop or bump them. Not LED lights.
· Great for spotlighting due to a directional distribution. All of the light molecules can easily be sent in one direction without losing energy.
· There is no infrared lighting from LED lights. And there is no UV radiation, which is better for you and the environment.
· Contains no mercury making it safer.
· Cool to the touch so no need to worry about burning or turning off the lights for 30 minutes before you change them.
· They make great colored lights from anywhere on the light spectrum
