LED light fixtures are, simply put, the latest and most advanced light bulb technology on the market. LED stands for “light emitting diode,” which describes the tiny bulbs, or diodes, that make up our LED strip lighting tape. They are energy efficient with a low carbon footprint and do not emit any toxic material. This makes them the most environmentally-friendly bulb on the market. They are easy to install and come in a wide variety of colors, which can take lighting as a design feature to the next level. They are durable and therefore are being utilized in a broad array of applications. They can be found in residential lighting for enhancing and highlighting under cabinets, bookcases, and more. The automotive and aviation industries use them in control panels and general lighting because they are so efficient and illuminate without an intense glare. LED’s are ideal for electronic appliances and entertainment systems, as well as gaming consoles.
What Are the Advantages of Using LED Light Fixtures?
- Efficiency – LEDs have a very long lifespan. They consume much less energy and burn much cooler than traditional Halogen bulbs. As a result, they are not prone to burn out as quickly or cost as much to use as other bulbs. This is perhaps the number one benefit. Longevity and coolness equal cost savings – no one can argue with the economics of this combination as a money saver.
- Flexibility – When it comes to design, LED light fixtures can be found in a variety of combinations and settings that enhance the ambiance of a room. Imagine how subtle under cabinet lighting in a kitchen would look. LED lights can be dimmed according to mood, so they are ideal for any living space. They can illuminate as much or as little as needed while bringing out the best of a room. A well-designed set of lights can achieve a significant effect on the mood and spirit.
- Immediate lighting – As soon as LED light fixtures are switched on they provide instant lighting. Moreover, speaking of switching, the frequency of switching them on or off will not have an impact on their lifespan or brightness. Other light systems often need time to reach full luminosity, and frequently turning them off and on can affect operation.
- Use in cool temperatures – LEDs can be used in colder climates as well as in refrigeration units. They are also ideal for many outdoor uses, such as parking, outside store lighting and for signs.
- Safe to handle – As mentioned above, LEDs are cool to the touch and therefore are much easier and safer to handle than their incandescent counterparts. When modifying the system, no time is wasted waiting for them to cool, and there is little threat of receiving burns.
- Regulated – Brightening or dimming can be implemented with switches that offer lots of control over the lights. They can be programmed to dim a certain percentage at a particular time, or to turn off and on at the same time daily.
LED light fixtures are overtaking conventional lighting. They are less expensive to operate, maintain, and control. They are a product of superior technology and have quickly become the go-to light fixture for homes and businesses alike.
