With increasing energy pollution, rising energy costs, and global climate change, LED lighting has skyrocketed to popularity in recent years. LED lighting is the energy efficient lighting solution of the future, and if you aren’t yet on the bandwagon, you’re lagging behind the times. LED lights can make your Scottsdale home or business exponentially more energy efficient, and can save you hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars per month.
What is LED?
LED stands for “light emitting diodes.” LEDs began rather humbly: as simple indicator lights in electronic devices. However, because, among other things, of their ability to produce great amounts of light while emitting little heat, they quickly found their place in an entirely new category of lighting that is projected to reach $30 billion by 2025.
LED Lights Are Cooler
Literally. LED lights create and waste very heat. Where standard incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat, and compact fluorescent bulbs release 80% of their energy as heat, LED bulbs release far less heat. In fact, according to the U.S. government, LED bulbs use up to 75% less energy than standard bulbs. So not only do they light up a space much more efficiently, but they keep it cool. This is especially useful in hotter seasons, such as summer, where inefficient lights can cause you to run up your AC bill higher than necessary.
LED lighting is, in other words, energy efficient. Not only do LED light fixtures use less energy and emit less heat, but they possess directional light emission capability. That is, they can direct light precisely where is needed, unlike other types of lights, which emit light indiscriminately, in all directions. LED energy saving light bulbs are better for both consumers and the environment. They are the obvious lighting choice for environment-conscious homes and businesses in Scottsdale and worldwide.
Durable and Money-Saving
LED lights are not only energy-efficient, but extremely durable as well. They boast a double-benefit: long life and low maintenance. Indeed, they can last 35 to 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs and 10 times as long as fluorescent lights. LED light fixtures are also more accident-proof than other types of light fixtures. Unlike bulbs, LED lights do not have breakable glass or filaments. LED lights are designed to be flexible and versatile, allowing them to come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. They can be large or compact, and can be placed nearly anywhere. Best of all, unlike other forms of lighting, LED lighting is “instant” on—i.e. LEDs require no “warm up” time.
