Benefits Associated With LED Lighting

LED lighting is based around the concept of 'Light Emitting Diodes' which is a semi-conductor and when an electric current is passed through the LED it generates light through a process that is called electroluminescence. LED lighting has grown significantly in popularity in recent years as it is deemed to be more energy efficient and to have a longer lifespan and can help businesses improve their lighting whilst reducing energy consumption, something that is high on most board agendas due to the increasing cost of energy.

Some of the recognised benefits of LED lighting are:

Better For The Environment

LED bulbs re more environmentally friendly as they reduce energy consumption when in use compared to traditional light bulbs and the very nature of their construction which does not require mercury makes them easier to dispose of at their end of life too.

Better Performance

Unlike traditional light bulbs that can require more energy to start when the weather turns colder, LED lights have been proven to work more effectively when it is colder and they are well suited to provide outside locations with light such as on signage, in transport depots etc.

Longer Lifespan

LED bulbs are proven to last significantly longer than the average incandescent light bulb.

Energy Efficient

LED lighting uses less energy than other sources of light and therefore by being more energy efficient, it is cost effective too.

Ideal For Flexible Solutions

LED lights are small and as such add versatile solutions for homes, gardens and businesses in developing the appropriate lighting solution for each setting and purpose. They also turn on and turn off quickly, reducing the energy used and ensuring that safety is not compromised whilst waiting for the bulb to become fully illuminated.

Safer To Use

LED's do not get as hot as traditional light bulbs and so it can be argued that they are safer to use too.

Over the past few years there has been a significant move to LED lighting which has obvious benefits for the planet when it comes to resources, heat generation and reducing energy consumption so it is recommended that reviews are undertaken where possible to consider implementing LED lighting solutions for all homes and businesses going forward.
