LED Lights shine brightly into the future
Posted on February 27, 2013 by admin
Chances are you’ve heard of LED lighting. It could even be the source of light from computer screen as you’re reading this! What you may not be familiar with however is the energy efficiency and other benefits of LED (light emitting diodes) lighting, which continue to outshine rivals. LED lighting has undergone transformations and technological improvements since its discovery more than a century ago, and now is set to dominate the global lighting market, according to a recent news article published in The Sydney Morning Herald.
North Gold Coast Electrical is proud to supply and install LED lighting as part of our domestic and commercial electrical solutions provided by our electrical contractors in Pacific Pines and across the Gold Coast. In today’s article we look at the factors which give LED lighting the shining edge over conventional lighting options, plus give reasons to consider installing this popular lighting option in your home or business.
Once considered out of reach for many consumers, LED lighting while still slightly more costly than other lighting options has drastically reduced due to a global abundance in LED chips that have been manufactured. Prices are set to continue to decrease as this lighting technology becomes more widely adopted.
Superior Energy Efficiency
LED lighting has superior operating efficiency when compared to traditional incandescent light bulbs, while still illuminating and creating a good amount of light in a room. They also eclipse rivals such as compact fluorescent lamps (CFL’s) in their environmental impact, requiring much less natural resources to manufacture, transport and dispose of bulbs
LED lighting has around three times the lifespan when compared with CFL’s and more than 25 times the lifespan of incandescent light bulbs. An LED light’s lifespan was around 25,000 hours per light. This helps you save in two ways – your lighting will use less energy than other types and you’ll be replacing bulbs less often. We think that’s a win-win for your home or business.
With sustainable and efficient energy use in the minds of environmentally conscious consumers in recent times, it’s no surprise that customers are turning to LED lighting as an economic and environmental choice for their commercial or domestic lighting needs.
