Benefits of LED Lights
LED bulbs can save you money not only because they are about 80% more energy efficient than other incandescent bulbs, but also because they generate much less heat than metal halide, CFL and incandescent bulbs. Converting to LED lighting means that during the summer months, you won’t have to deal with cooling down rooms that were heated up by the incandescent bulbs. They originally had a cooler blue hue than incandescent bulbs, but LEDs now come in daylight and warm white color temperatures, making it easier to replace existing bulbs without changing the color of the room. Check out our lighting guide for information on the differences in color temperature. LED lighting also offers a better color rendering index (CRI), so you can better see the colors of your artwork or makeup.
LED replacement bulbs are sustainable and environmentally friendly. Did you know that you can reduce your carbon footprint by a third by recycling LED bulbs? LEDs last longer than their competitors and stay continuously bright for up to 11 years. That means less time spent climbing ladders to replace hard-to-reach bulbs on vaulted ceilings.
LEDs are one of the most promising technologies today.
They do not contain mercury and are therefore a clean alternative to fluorescent tubes and CFLs.
They last 20 times longer than some conventional luminaires.
The lowest energy consumption of any lighting product ever.
Light quality equal to or better than conventional lighting products.
LEDs or fluorescent lamps – which is more efficient?
LED bulbs win! When it comes to buying energy efficient lighting, LEDs are far superior to CFLs. LEDs are instant on, no warm-up time. They work well in cold weather and are much more durable as they are made of plastic instead of glass. From standard incandescent lamps to fluorescent tubes, LEDs can replicate the light conditions found in fluorescent tubes, while lasting longer and using less energy. An added benefit is that all LEDs comply with the RoHS standard and do not contain mercury, which is not the case with fluorescent tubes.
LED Lighting Options
Standard A19 shape – designed to look like a standard incandescent bulb. Standard LED bulbs and A-shaped LED bulbs fit the same sockets and fixtures as your existing home light fixtures.
3-way LED lamp – A 3-way lamp is a lamp with three brightness settings instead of the standard on or off. If your lamp or fixture indicates that it requires a three-way bulb, this category is for you.
Vintage LED Bulbs – Vintage reissue bulbs are now available with LED filaments. They emit a warm orange light when the light level is low, mimicking the style of vintage dimmer switches that change from yellow to orange. The Edison and Victorian style bulbs make great collector’s items. Order now to create your own steampunk lighting.
LED Bulbs for Wet Environments – The UL wet environment standard means that these LED bulbs can be used in wet indoor and outdoor environments where water may splash or drip onto the bulb or fixture.
Decorative LED lights – find 3 to 1.5-inch diameter LED lights or replacement LED lights for your chandelier. The long lifespan of LEDs means less time in the chandelier replacing burnt-out bulbs. Many LED chandelier lights are compatible with dimmer switches and come in a variety of color temperatures, so you can still enjoy the ambiance of traditional incandescent lights, but with the energy savings of LEDs.
LEDs – LEDs are the new standard for commercial and domestic lighting. With sizes from T5 to T12 and a variety of color temperatures, these LED tubes are an easy way to transition to energy efficient lighting. Some of them work with or without the existing ballast, making the transition to LED lighting easier than ever.
These cob led lights bulbs emit the same amount of light works as T8 fluorescent bulbs, but consume a fraction of the electricity and last up to three times longer. LEDs are especially effective in cold spaces, such as refrigerators, where fluorescent bulbs produce works lighting less efficiently.
LED strip lights – For accents, alcoves and backlighting, LED strip lights are fantastic. More versatile than wired lighting and bright enough for accent lighting, LED strip lights can brighten up any space. This new, easy-to-install works lighting source has countless uses and applications.
Floodlights – from high-power floodlights and spotlights to built-in or track-mounted luminaires, floodlights are ideal for indoor and outdoor use. Corn bulbs led luminaires provide the same amount of works lighting with less energy consumption and generate much less heat than incandescent or halogen lamps. In addition, their CRI is better than fluorescent bulbs, which gives better colour rendering.
Things to Consider When Buying LED Lighting
Equivalent wattage-Although lumens are a new standard, it is useful to have an easily recognizable reference. By comparing an cob led lights with an incandescent bulb, it is possible to roughly estimate the capacity to light works a room. A wattage very close to that of corn bulbs led, 1/4 or 1/5 the wattage of an incandescent bulb, is usually close to what is needed.
Luminous flux – Luminous flux is a direct measure of the total amount of portable work light emitted by a light bulb. A 60 watt bulb emits on average 800 lumens of portable work light, but the difference can be 50-100 lumens more or less. The differences depend on the manufacturer and the age of the bulb. LEDs are scaled directly to the maximum luminous flux of incandescent bulbs, so they last much longer without reducing the luminous efficacy of the bulb.
Colour temperature – a guide to the appearance of cob led lights. Lower values are warmer, 2700-3000 K is a ‘warmer white’ lamp, while higher temperatures, such as 5000 K, provide a very harsh ‘bright white’ light. You can select a colour temperature in our light works guide and see how your kitchen changes.
Driver Content – Because of their structure, corn bulbs led do not generally operate on AC voltage. Many LEDs require a type of driver to convert the voltage from AC to DC for proper operation. Most socket-based LED portable work lights are self-powered, but it is always a good idea to check before purchase whether you are buying both LEDs and drivers if they are not self-powered.
