What are LED Lights?
The term LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. These are semiconductor devices which produce brilliant light when electricity is passed through them.
LED lights are extremely energy efficient lights as they use 85 % less electricity than conventional incandescent or halogen lights. These low energy LED bulbs thus result in significant electricity savings for residential lighting, commercial lighting and industrial lighting.

What Are The Advantages Of LED Light Bulbs?
LEDs are especially useful when it comes to illuminating goods and materials that are heat sensitive as they produce little radiant heat emissions i.e. infrared radiation. UV sensitive objects and materials are also protected as LED light fixtures have zero UV emissions.
LEDs are also Eco-friendly as they don’t contain any toxic chemicals, unlike conventional fluorescent lighting that contains environmentally toxic substances such as mercury. LEDs are 100% recyclable and can dramatically reduce your carbon footprint. The longevity of the LEDs also translates into a lot less material being used over the product life cycle. This in itself contributes significantly to the greener future that we are working towards.
LEDs are also very resilient lights as they are made to resist shock, vibrations and external impacts. LEDs are also ideal for indoor and outdoor infrastructural, commercial and industrial lighting because they remain operational under extreme temperature variations. Their design flexibility allows dynamic control of luminosity, color, and distribution.
Adequately designed LEDs illumination light fixtures such as a track or recessed lighting, cannot only achieve highly effective lighting for the eye but also for the mood and the mind. LEDs resilience also spills over into instant lighting and frequency switching as they offer instant illumination once they are switched on and do not have to power up. Frequently switching lights on and off has no direct impact on the lifespan or the luminosity of LEDs.
