Why LED Lighting?
LEDs Are Amazingly Energy-Efficient
Four or Five LEDs consume the same amount of electricity as a single incandescent light - that adds up to a significant saving in energy. They even use about half the electricity of the previous efficiency champ, the compact fluorescent.
LED Lights Save You Money
over its lifetime, the combined cost of LED lighting and the electricity it uses is less than any other - not to mention the cost/hassle of physically replacing bulbs. Simple.
LEDs last at least 25,000 hours, and often up to 50,000 hours. This compares to Incandescents at 1,200 hours, and compact fluorescents at around 10,000 hours
LEDs have been in use for a long time
LED lighting is a proven technology that's been in widespread use for decades. Electronic appliances of all kinds have used LEDs since the 60s. They first began to replace incandescent bulbs in the late 1980sh. see here
LEDs Can Create the right colour for the right mood
Initially, many LED lighting solutions used harsh, cold, blueish light - but nowadays LEDs are capable of producing almost any colour - even the warm, soft glow of old and inefficient incandescent light bulbs.
LEDs Contain No Toxic Mercury
Compact fluorescents contain mercury. A nasty toxin which can cause birth defects, brain damage and other disorders. Who wants to clean up a broken CFL? Many consider LEDs' biggest single advantage over CFLs is that they contain no mercury or other hazardous materials.
LED Lights Are Cool
Incandescent and halogen lights can be very hot. LEDs, on the other hand, are completely cool to touch - even after several hours of use -- they're even cooler than CFLs.
LEDs Can Be Dimmed
Many (not all) LED lights can be dimmed and come on instantly, and they don't flicker. (ditto).
LED lighting is instant
Like incandescent, but not like CFLs
LED lighting is constant
Their light output is constant over the lifetime of the lamp, fading only when at the end of their very, very, very, very long life.
So, how do we take advantage of this to give you great LED lighting products?
