Top 3 Things You Should Know About LEDs

LED LightsThe advancements on the light-emitting diode, more commonly known as LED, has led to the replacement of many conventional technologies in the past years.

From the things you use inside the house like LED lamps and flashing mini LED lights, to emergency LED light bars and traffic signals, there could be a thousand more products out there that are made of LED materials.

Here are the reasons you should use the products made of LED instead of the traditional materials:

Energy-Efficient

An incandescent bulb releases up to 90 percent of its energy as heat, the reason traditional light bulbs are hot. On the other hand, LED uses a technology that uses a semiconductor to translate electricity into light with little heat spent.

According to studies, the introduction of LED technology has cut energy usage by at least 80 percent – that’s at least six times more energy efficient than conventional incandescent bulbs.

Environment-Friendly

The life expectancy of a traditional incandescent bulb is around 1,000 hours. Meanwhile, LED is at least 25,000 hours. That’s leaving a LED lamp turned on for almost 3 years running 24/7! Plus, LED does not contain mercury.

With fewer materials (even lesser hazardous) needed to manufacture LED products, think of how it greatly helps in conserving the environment?

Flexibility

If you haven’t noticed yet, there are home and industrial products that use the LED technology, and the list is still growing as years passes by. The reasons are quite simple: you can easily mold it to fit anywhere, its flexibility allows itself to bend easily without being broken, and it’s maintenance-free.

So the next time you shop for a lighting product, look for items with LED technology. Not only you can save money to pay your electric bill, it lasts longer which means you don’t need to buy for at least two more years. Plus, it doesn’t cost any harm to the environment.
