Light-Emitting Diode (LED) is a semiconductor device (LED chip) that emits visible light when an electric current passes through it - essentially it converts electricity into light.
When one or more LED's are combined with an electrical driver and placed in a fixture, you have a complete LED system.
- Long-Lasting - LED bulbs last up to 10 times longer than compact fluorescents, and far longer than a typical incandescent. With the reduced maintenance from the bulbs lasting longer, our clients save tens of thousands of dollars over the life expectancy of the fixtures.
- Durability - Since LEDs do not have a filament, they are not damaged under circumstances when a regular incandescent bulb would be broken. Because they are solid, LED bulbs hold up well to jarring, bumping, shock and vibration. Additionally, they have excellent cold weather performance.
- Cool - LED light bulbs do not cause heat build-up; LEDs produce 3.4 btu's/hour, compared to 85 for incandescent bulbs. Because common incandescent light bulbs get hot, they contribute to heat build-up in a room. LED light bulbs prevent this heat build-up, thereby helping to reduce air conditioning costs.
- Mercury-Free - no mercury is used in the manufacturing of LED light bulbs.
- Efficient- LED light bulbs use only 2-17 watts of electricity (1/3rd to 1/30th of Incandescent or CFL), which can reduce energy consumption by up to 90% in many scenarios. LED light bulbs used in fixtures save electricity, remain cool and save money on replacement costs since LED light bulbs last so long. Small LED flashlight bulbs will extend battery life 10 to 15 times longer than with incandescent bulbs.
- Cost-Effective - Although LED lighting is initially more expensive, the cost is often recovered in most scenarios with 2-5 years.
- Choose LED lighting and save -- money, energy, and the environment.
