When you think of LED lighting a lot of different things may come to mind; from the big screens used at football matches and concerts, to the coloured bulbs used in fairy lights, but you might not think of them as the kind of light you use in your own home. LED lights are making a huge impact on the way Australian’s light their homes and businesses. LED lights last longer, are way better for the environment, and are significantly more cost-efficient that fluorescent or incandescent lights.
But how do LED lights work?
These little guys have a lot of power and are run through a type of solid-state lighting that uses a semiconductor that converts energy into light. Less heat is wasted this way, and therefore LEDs cut wasted energy use of other light bulbs by 70%. Not only do they save energy use, they’re also super durable. The typical manufacturer’s warranty is at around five years, and it is unlikely that your bulbs will need to be replaced during this time.
Where can LED lights be used?
On top of their energy efficiency and durability, they are highly flexible and can adapt to a huge variety of models. The most popular models for households are the down lights and tubing. They don’t need reflectors or diffusers like traditional incandescent lights might, and focus their light according to their environment, meaning that you’ll have bright lights anywhere and at any time of the day. LED’s are also a great choice for commercial properties as they can fit into a variety of settings to provide light for large scale areas. As they are designed as a coloured light source, they are also a popular choice for the entertainment industry, which is why you may have seen them at sporting events or at festivals creating bright coloured lights for even the biggest stadiums.
Super flexible, long lasting, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly; LED lights are sure to light your path to a bright future!
