LED a fade or a permanent feature in all our homes?
LED Lights are capable of dimming very easily and then lighting up again very rapidly. These advanced on/off abilities allow standard LED Lights to achieve full docility in mere microseconds, making them extremely well suited for home lighting.
What is an LED?
LED stands for light-emitting diode. LED is a semiconductor diode that emits a bright light when an electric current passes through it, just like a simple circuit. This circuit produces electroluminescence, which can be infrared, visible, or ultraviolet, and a number of different colours depending on the makeup and condition of the semiconducting material used. These lights are often very small, typically less than 1 mm. UK Manufacturers have combined special optics and lenses to the chip to help with reflection, creating an incredibly powerful beam for the size of the bulb.
In the home, for Picture and Display Lighting – LEDs have the advantage of using semiconductor technology, which radiates light without heat saving you paintings, and stopping them fading. As an added benefit – this also makes the bulbs last longer than fluorescent or halogens. You can also dim the 12-volt LED lights to get the desired display effect further saving energy whilst creating a softer ambience in your home.
LED lights are exceptionally bright, very bright, in fact, that it can even replace halogen lights in commercial applications. They provide an attractive lighting effect that not only saves money it also helps protect the environment. A staggering claim, but true. The Scottish Government is actually offering £300 towards energy saving lighting, which includes LEDs.
LEDs are here to stay, is it time you switched to LED?
