LED stands for a light emitting diode and is a highly effective replacement to standard light bulbs or fluorescent tubes.
The LED revolution is changing the way we illuminate our homes, and the popularity of these amazing light emitting diodes (LEDs) has put lighting at centre stage in our houses, workplaces and leisure spaces with more people making the switch.
From being merely a functional part of our lives, the versatility, economy and durability of LEDs has inspired designers to use lighting as an architectural feature, whether to highlight points of interest, to divide areas or enhance the mood of a room. They work equally well outdoors to add depth to a garden or architectural feature after dark, and to increase safety and visibility on footways and public spaces.
The facts in favour of LEDs are compelling. They last 25 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, with a useful life of 25,000 hours or more.
LED light can be sent in specific directions, meaning beams can be targeted without use of reflectors or diffusers, which trap and waste light.
A big plus of LEDs is that no mercury is used in their manufacture, reducing toxins in the environment, and at up to 80 per cent more efficient than traditional bulbs, LEDs use much less power than incandescent. Less energy use reduces the demand from power plants, decreases greenhouse gas emissions and makes them much cheaper to run.
By converting more power to light, LEDs don’t generate heat like traditional bulbs, so are safer to use. Whether you want to directly replace traditional bulbs, or create a whole new lighting array, LEDs are an excellent investment, whether you want to light your kitchen countertop, highlight your shop sign or illuminate art works.
