Let’s go through some of the top advantages of light emitting diode (LED) lighting technology.
LED Energy Efficiency
It’s known that LEDs generally consume very low amounts of power. In our experience, most LED lighting retrofit projects result in a 60-75% improvement in the overall energy efficiency of the facility’s lighting. It all depends on the existing lights and the particular LEDs installed, the savings could be more than 90%.
Safety with LEDs
Safety is most important at Abba Electrical, it is perhaps the most often missed advantage when it comes to LED lighting as well. The number one hazard when it comes to lighting is the emission of heat. Only 10% of the energy powering incandescent lights is actually used for light (which also makes them extremely inefficient compared to LEDs). Additionally, because LEDs consume less power they can operate effectively on low-voltage electrical systems. These are generally much safer in the event that something goes wrong.
LED Light Lifespan
What we think is the most significant advantage of LEDs when compared to traditional lighting solutions is the long lifespan. Do you know the average LED lasts 50,000 operating hours to 100,000 operating hours or more. This is a whooping 2-4 times as long as most fluorescent, metal halide, and even sodium vapor lights. It is more than 40 times as long as the average incandescent bulb. Great isn’t it.
LED Lights are Environmentally Safe
LEDs do not have the environmental issues common to traditional lighting solutions like fluorescent or mercury vapor lights. Both of these traditional solutions contain mercury internal to the bulb and thus require special handling at the end of the product’s useful lifespan. None of these considerations are necessary with LEDs.
The Quick Overview:
Super energy efficient and long lasting, LED lights
- Use about 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lights
- Use about 30% less energy than CFL lights
- Save you money on your power bills!
- Last between 15,000-50,000 hours
- Reach full brightness instantly
- Contain no mercury or lead
Emit no UV rays or infrared radiation
Operate at a much cooler temperature, making them a safer option than halogens
- Cut greenhouse gas emissions and reduce landfill.
Installing LED lighting in your home is a vital stylistic move. Our lights have been carefully engineered to bring as much light and value into your home as possible. Most of our collections have been inspired by stars, galactic systems, and constellations to maximize the potential design value of the fixture and consequent space. They’re infused with cutting edge LED technology, dimmable capability, soft white bulbs, and tens of thousands of hours in their life expectancy. The versatility of our lighting fixtures enables them to be used however the homeowner sees fit, adding a depth and dimension to the value of the fixtures. They can be the centerpiece of the room or merely a compliment to existing pieces and decor. Additionally, fully furnished rooms are ideal for both decorating and selling purposes. Whether you’re an interior designer wishing to demonstrate your designing prowess or a real estate agent seeking to stage the rooms, having your rooms tailored to perfection will benefit both client and owner/seller. They will see the potential of the room and its subsequent value.
