LED Lighting Products – Superior, Energy-Efficient Lighting.
Light Emitting Diode Products originated in the electronics industry and were used in the form of indication lights on products such as stereos, TV's, telephones and calculators. The technology used in these lights has come in leaps and bounds since they were first used commercially in around 1968, and now they are being used for general purpose illumination in household, garden, office, commercial and industrial environments. The popularity of LED lights continues to grow as a viable, everyday, energy-efficient lighting solution due to the products being far superior to other, conventional lighting systems in many ways. LED globes have an exceptionally long life.
If compared to a standard halogen downlight globe, which has a life expectancy of approximately 3000 hours, an LED downlight globe, which has a life expectancy of approximately 50000 hours, will outlast the conventional globes by around 15 times. This means less replacement costs and lower maintenance. These points alone are an unarguably significant improvement. Possibly the most important factor of the LED lighting products is its environmental impact. Not only does a longer globe life contribute to less waste and less maintenance which in turn saves on vehicle fuel and emissions, but LED lighting products actually use far less power to run. One 9 watt, LED downlight globe puts out the same amount of light as a 50 watt halogen downlight does. That means over 5 times LESS power is consumed when using LED lights, not to mention the dollars saved in running costs. LED's really are an energy-efficient lighting solution.
When we combine the energy efficiency of the LED light with the reduction in replacement lamps, we can see a significant decrease in carbon emissions into the environment. LED lighting products do not contain harmful gasses or UV rays and omits considerably less carbon dioxide than other standard globes which put carbon dioxide, sulfur oxide and nuclear waste into the landfills and atmosphere. It is not only environmental benefits that the LED boasts. LED lights can light almost anything, in any way. There are endless design possibilities, colors, shapes and sizes, plus, they turn on instantly. LED's are a safer alternative, containing no mercury and creating far less heat than other lighting methods.

Home lighting will usually contribute to over 30% of a household's total electricity bill. See it be reduced by replacing your inefficient, out of date halogen and incandescent light globes with LED lighting products. They're a cost-effective, energy-efficient lighting alternative. Just one LED bulb can keep one half ton of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere through its life cycle. The environment is a subject that everyone is aware of. If you don't already use energy-efficient lighting, maybe it's time to start.
