From the time that LED solutions first made an entry into the lighting world, the LED lighting and LED fixtures have come to age. They came to the light in the years 1994. Even though the process was a successful one, the yellow light emitted was not bright enough to be of any considerable use. As such, the industry came to a halt, and then the research had stopped for a while. It is then later that the birth of the new cost-efficient and super-bright LEDs came to be. These are the lights that are used in our homes, places of work, and even in our vehicles. The LED in full is a light-emitting diode which is a semi-conductor light force that produces light after some electric current goes through it. Since their invention, they have transformed the world of lighting with a lot of solutions to many problems. This has made them quite popular than their counterparts, the incandescent lights. This can be attributed to the following benefits.
Led lights have a long life. With the LED bulbs and fixtures, you can enjoy an extended lifespan owing to the composition of the various parts. These lights can keep burning for many hours running into the thousands in comparison to the ordinary lights. Most of the ordinary lights have a filament for the production of light and for that reason, it becomes weak with time and this leads to their burning out. However, for the LED lights, they do not burn since they make use of lumen depreciation which can go up to 5000 hrs. before they get to 30% and that prolongs their life.
The LED lights are also highly efficient. They can turn approximately 70% of their energy to the production of light owing to their high lumen output. This leads to an increase in their efficiency which is an added advantage compared to the conventional lighting options. For the regular bulbs, most of their energy is converted into heat and hence, less energy is converted into light. In some instances where the bulbs are installed near fabrics, the high-temperature degrees become a safety option.
They also have high brightness and intensity. This had led to the use of lumens for the measurement of the level of brightness as opposed to the wattage. Compared to incandescent and CFL bulbs, LED lights have a high lumen and that increases their brightness level.
The LED lights also have an exceptional color range. For the other lights such as the incandescent to produce different colors, they require fitting with gels or filters, and even so, the colors fade and could change the color of the bulb. For the LEDs, their wide color range gives them a good appearance which does not fade with time as they have the colors from the phosphorus coating from the diodes. As such, as long as they burn, their colors will remain the same.
There is no doubt that LED lighting has revolutionized the lighting industry. It is time you migrated to the new efficient lighting option.
