Forget expensive to run traditional halogen lightbulbs; the future is all about LED! Long after the incandescent lightbulbs phase-out, it’s halogen’s turn to be banned. The whole of Europe is slowly but surely waving goodbye to inefficient traditional lightbulbs and saying hello to some exceptional LEDs to replace them. But why LED? And how can they benefit you? Whether you’re a designer, an electrician, a professional looking to revamp your office in the most energy efficient way, or just someone who loves to add a fabulous flair to your home with creative lighting, there are heaps of reasons why LEDs are top of their game and by far today’s smartest most power-saving illumination solution.
1. LED shines bright for much longer
It has got to be way up top on the list: LEDs have an exceptional life time, designed to last for years, with a rated life of up to 50,000 hours. This is about 50 times longer than the typical incandescent and about 25 times longer than a halogen bulb!
2. LED is energy efficient + cost effective and won’t burn a hole in your pocket!
Compare LED to traditional lighting when it comes to energy consumption and you’ll be stunned. LED bulbs are designed to use energy to produce more light rather than wasteful heat; 80% of electrical energy is converted to light, while only 20% is lost and converted into other forms of energy, such as heat. Traditional incandescent light bulbs operate at a mere 20% energy efficiency, with 80% of the electricity used lost as heat.
3. You’ll be doing the environment a favour with LED
Your traditional light bulb contains heaps of harmful substances (like mercury) that are bad for the environment. LED lights help you take a greener step toward the future, not just because they use less energy, but because they are free of toxic chemicals and are 100% recyclable, helping you reduce your carbon footprint.
4. LED lights add the most creative flair to any space
LED lights are just getting better and better, available in cool white and warm white varieties. Quality LED lights deliver a great colour consistency, colour rendering and lumen packages. And they help you achieve fantastic lighting effects, with a dynamic control of light, colour and distribution. Schools, shops, hotels, hospitals, clubs, bars…you name it…they are all switching to LED!
5. LED is super durable
Want great lighting for an outdoor environment? LED is the answer! Super sturdy, they can withstand tough conditions and are really resistant to shock, harsh weather conditions (from heavy rain to strong wind), external vibrations and more.
