Benefits of LED Lighting
It is now well know that LED lighting confers huge benefits to users and the environment:
LED Lights can last up to 10 x longer than a standard halogen lamp. This certainly saves you money.
Compared to standard light bulbs which operate at a 20% efficiency rate and lose 80% of their energy to heat, LED lights operate at 80% efficiency and lose only 20% to heat. Therefore, to replace a traditional 60W bulb you need just a 6W LED bulb. With being so energy efficient, you use less electricity. Experts suggest you could save £240 a year in energy costs.
They don't heat up.
This means that amount of damage or corrosion to fittings is reduced, which in turn lowers your maintenance costs.
LED lighting doesn't contain all the types of harmful chemicals that conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain. Furthermore, their long life means that the number which need to be produced compared to conventional light bulbs is massively reduced.
LED Lighting for Homes and Businesses
LED lights can be installed in your home as well as commercial premises. It makes sense everywhere.
LED lighting can really add focus and mood to a home to enhance its best features. They can be used in kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, inside cabinets, stairs and flooring to create a really stunning look. And since they don't heat up there is practically no risk of damage or fire. You can also install them in your garden decking to make this a really useable space in the evenings.
Business premises like shops, salons and offices really benefit from LED lighting too. LEDs saves the business money as well as providing focussed light where you want to highlight specific products or to provide better lighting for staff.
