The most effective way of lighting today is undoubtedly with LED. Compared to older lighting technologies such as incandescent, halogen and CFL lamps, you will find that LED is by far the most energy saving and smart solution.
LED lamps are a type of electronic light source. LED bulbs differ from conventional light sources, such as incandescent and halogen bulbs. They last much longer, consume much less energy and emit very little heat. They are very durable and do not have fragile elements such as glass tubes or threads. They are also safer because they do not contain mercury or lead. LED bulbs are now available in most common luminaires, including the GU10, B22, E27 and MR16.
What kind of Led lamps are there?
There are many types of bulbs that are compatible with most caps, shapes and sizes.
There are LEDs in a wide range of types, such as standard GLS, candles, golf balls, reflectors, headlights and tubes.
In what colors are the LED lamps available;
Light output is usually found in one of three colors: warm white, cool white and daylight. Warm white is commonly used in home capacities and is the normal color associated with a standard halogen bulb that makes it the ideal replacement. Cool white is a cooler white color often associated with fluorescent lamps in offices or retail stores. The color of the day is a very white light, almost with a shade of blue and provides the best color performance.
How much power do LEDs use?
LED lamps use up to 90% less energy than an incandescent or halogen lamp of equivalent brightness. LED lamps are much more efficient in converting electricity, measured in watts, in light, measured in lumens
How long do LEDs last?
One of the biggest benefits of using an LED is its excellent lifespan due to its very efficient thermal management.
How bright are the LEDs?
The brightness of a lamp is measured in lumens (Lm), the higher the number of lumens, the brighter the lamp. Despite the use of very low watts, LEDs can emit the same brightness as traditional light sources
How can LEDs help us save money?
Whether it is a typical home or commercial environment, lighting accounts for up to 20% of total energy consumption. By switching to LED, a significant amount of money can be saved due to the lower wattage of the products. LED bulbs also last much longer, so you do not need to replace them often and their reliability means you do not have to worry about maintenance. Once you switch to LED, you will start saving money in less than a year.
Are LEDs safe?
Unlike CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lamps), LEDs do not contain mercury. They also emit relatively little heat, making them safer to handle after prolonged use.
Why are LED lights environmentally friendly?
The use of LED lights reduces carbon emissions. Replacing old incandescent or CFL bulbs with LEDs effectively reduces the harmful levels of CO2 released into the air.
Will the LED bulbs work on my existing components?
Yes, all LED bulbs are equipped and designed to work with existing luminaires and to be used as direct replacements. Make sure that the components installed in the bathrooms are both fireproof and waterproof and have the appropriate IP65 certification or higher for compliance with the relevant bathroom regulations.
Do I have to use a special dimmer for adjustable LED bulbs?
Yes. LEDs use very little power compared to halogen bulbs. While this is good news for electricity bills, it also means that they do not work properly with existing dimmer switches and can lead to shorter lamp life, lower lighting efficiency and brighter sound. For optimal performance, you should use edge adjusters that have lower minimum loads and are designed for use with LED bulbs.
Do the LEDs light up immediately or do they need to be heated?
LEDs reach full brightness instantly unlike CFLs, which usually take a few minutes to reach full brightness.
Will the LEDs operate outdoors or in cold temperatures?
LEDs are ideal for operation at low and low outdoor temperatures unlike CFLs. They are also extremely durable and made with durable components and can withstand harsh conditions. Because LEDs are resistant to vibration, vibration and external shocks, they make the perfect choice for outdoor lighting systems.
