What You should Know about LED Lights
Updated: Aug 5
The use of LEDs is growing day by day. More and more people are recognising its benefits and potential and incorporating them in their houses and workplaces. LEDs offer a lot of benefits as compared to regular incandescent bulbs. Here's some of them
LEDs are extremely small in size. They are made up of a combination of green, blue and red LEDs to produce white light.
LEDs emit light in a certain direction, which reduces the need for reflectors and diffusers to trap light making them more efficient for many light settings. Other lightings must be reflected in the desired direction to achieve the desired light.
In comparison to regular incandescent lights, LEDs emit very little heat. Incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat and CFLs release about 80%.
LEDs have a longer life span as compared to regular lights. An LED bulb can last up to 35,000 to 50,000 hours. This translates to about 11 years.
LEDs provide high lumen output per watt. Due to this, they turn 70% of their heat into light and only 30% is wasted as heat. This results in maximum utilisation of the electricity and less wastage meaning more energy is saved.
