Why to choose LED Lights?
Nowadays when thinking about lighting a place, most people consider using LED (Light Emitting Diode) lamps. This is not simply because LEDs are relatively new in the market compared with incandescent or fluorescent lamps, but also because they have several advantages.
One of the most popular reasons LED lights are chosen is because they are very energy efficient. With much lower consumption LED lights can replace previous lighting technologies, such as incandescent or fluorescent lamps, while keeping the same light output intensity. In fact LEDs have a very high luminous efficacy when compared with other lighting technologies. Until now LED lights range up to 300lm/W and some even more.
Another advantage is that LEDs have a longer lifetime when compared with other types of lights. With an average lifetime of 40,000 hours and its solid state material, LEDs can last up to 5 years and some even more. Apart from the ruggedness, LEDs are very small in size compared with other light sources of the same light output intensity. Nowadays technologies like the Chip On Board (COB) use SMD (Surface Mount Devices) LEDs assembled right on their printed circuit board for use in compact light fittings.
One of the disadvantages of the compact fluorescent lamps also known as “energy saving” lamps is the warm-up period. LED lights do not exhibit this problem. They light up to maximum intensity in nanoseconds. This makes them ideal for frequent switching applications.
LED lights also have good colour rendering ranging over 80 and 90. This makes them ideal for display applications and where there is need for “natural” light. LEDs are also very controllable in brightness and colour.
Having said all this, LED lights are still higher in price when compared to incandescent or fluorescent lights. However if one takes into account the consumption and maintenance fees, LEDs are worth buying. Nowadays LED lamps can easily be replaced with other lamps. A wide range of retrofit LED lamps with common bases exist such as E14, E27, GU10, GU5.3, GX53, G9, RX7s, etc.
