LED lights, or light emitting diodes, are a type of light fitting which uses the movement of electrons to create illumination. They are often considered to be one of the most efficient types of lights when compared to more traditional fluorescent or incandescent varieties.
LED bulbs have a low energy consumption which allows households to save money on their energy bills; often up 90 per cent when compared with other types of bulbs. Another advantage of LED bulbs is that they last much longer than alternative options; they’re sometimes known to last for thousands of hours. LED light bulbs are also perfectly safe and do not emit any kinds of harmful radiation. As they also contain no ultra violet element to their components, these lighting options do not tend to attract any insects, making them an ideal choice for businesses, especially for those in the food industry.
Another advantage of LED lights is that when they do eventually run out of energy, they tend to fade gradually rather than instantly darken; this means that there is often a period of time when bulbs can be easily replaced without causing any inconvenience. Wall and ceiling light fittings specifically designed to incorporate LED lights and light bulbs are becoming increasingly popular because of the environmentally friendly aspect of their design. Generally, LED bulbs can be relatively small so they are often used in lamps, spot lights or any other fixture which projects beams of lights onto specific areas. Rooms such as the kitchen, bathroom or garage can benefit from these sorts of lights.
