Why use LED technology?

LED Lightings have extremely lower power consumption and can emit more light per watt.  It can save 85% when compared to conventional light sources as well as helping to reduce C02 emissions.

The first visible-spectrum LED was invented by Nick Holonyak Jr. while working for GE in 1962. Since then, the technology has rapidly advanced and costs have dropped tremendously, making LEDs a viable lighting solution. The nature of LEDs construction offers maximum flexibility in mechanical designs by providing compact light source.

LED lights are not only highly efficient compared to other  sources of lighting, they also last longer.  For instance;  the average life of a halogen 50 watt bulb is between 1,000 and 2,000 hours, approx. 1-2 years on average. The average life of most LED lighting is 50,000 hours, approx 50 years (of average usage). A no brainer.

LEDs have no start-up delay or ignition problems, operate at low voltages providing increased safety and are silent in operation.

LED lighting is much more efficient than “regular” incandescent lighting due to the fact that they give off almost no heat; so a much higher percentage of the electricity used goes towards making light, rather than in incandescent lighting where a good percentage of it ends up being converted to heat.
