How an LED light works?
- LEDs are just tiny light bulbs that fit easily into an electrical circuit. But unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, they don't have a filament that will burn out, and they don't get especially hot. They are illuminated solely by the
movement of electrons in a semiconductor material.
- Less power consumed = less carbon.
- Emissions = lower greenhouse gas emissions.
- Less eyestrain and headaches.
- Less electromagnetic radiation.
- Save for autistic children.
How much of the worlds global/carbon emissions are used through lighting?
- Zero-carbon power sources produce about 2% of the world's energy.
- Account for about 18% of world investment in power generation. By implementing low carbon power options, world electricity demand could continue to grow while maintaining stable carbon emission levels.
LEDs being a safer option by producing small amount of heat compared to halogens (no house fires)?
- LEDs: 5% of energy consumed to heat generation.
- Halogen: 90% of energy consumed to heat generation (wasted energy).
- Lower maintenance costs.
- Better warranty coverage.
- Lower power consumption.
- Longer life.
- Routine maintenance.
- Standard warranty.
- Higher power consumption.
- Shorter life.
LEDs use 80% less power than halogens
- 80% direct decrease in your in your lighting bill.
- LED operating temperatures less than 10 degrees.
- Halogen operating temperatures in excess off 200 degrees creating a fire hazard.
