Frequently Asked Questions
Got a question? Maybe you can find an answer below.
A. The latest concept in energy efficient lighting that has been revolutionizing the industry is LED lighting. Energy experts agree LEDs will continue to advance and supplement conventional lights by delivering a wide range of additional functions.
LED is an acronym for Light Emitting Diode. LEDs are found in all types of devices. LED's produce light directly from electricity moving across a PN- junction of the semiconductor crystal within the LED. These tiny crystals of semiconductor material are at the heart of an LED and they are very small compared with other ways to generate light.
A. Energy savings! LEDs use far less electricity to make light than other sources and last longer. That saves money on electricity bills and you won't have to replace bulbs as often. We know that electricity will cost even more in the future than it does now.
A. While LEDs have been around for many years, but only recently have they been powerful enough and affordable to use for general lighting.
A. Ordinary incandescent bulbs are little electric heaters that also make some light. Most of the energy is used to produce heat, not light. The more energy you use to create heat, the less efficient the light is. LED's have no filament to break so they last longer and are much more vibration resistant than ordinary incandescent light bulbs. Additionally, LEDs draw about 90% less wattage than incandescents and half the wattage of fluorescent lighting. They are safer because they do not contain hazardous materials.
A. LED lighting outshines the competition on many levels: efficiency, durability, safety and style. LED lighting can be up to 90 percent more efficient than standard lighting. LED lights last over 50000 hours - many times longer than CFL's. LED lights do not contain toxic chemicals or metals such as mercury. Going Green is something most people want to do these days, but finding eco-friendly products that can save money in the long run, is not easy to do. And with energy prices rising, energy efficiency is a constant concern. LED lighting provides a green cost effective solution. If every 60 Watt Incandescent bulb in the United States switched to an LED equivalent, the country would save approximately 34 terawatt hours of electricity a year, or enough electricity to light Las Vegas for about 2 years. Hotels and casinos are switching to LED Lights and are already saving hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in electricity costs. The latest advancements in LED technology has made it more affordable to provide "white" temperature LEDs. The latest white LED lamps provide the same brightness and quality as incandescent light bulbs and are much more efficient.
