The Benefits Of Using Spring TX LED Lights
LEDs provide many benefits over standard and traditional light bulbs, adding to the better parts of these outdated models while leaving any inefficiencies behind. Here are some of the main benefits of LEDs, along with information on how they have become so beneficial:
1. Longer Life-Span
The components found in LEDs and how they are able to generate and emit light, drastically extends how long these bulbs last. While the lifespans of other bulbs are typically shortened due to both improper and proper usage, LED bulbs are known for durability, energy efficiency, and lower heat levels. This is what makes these bulbs last for thousands of hours when compared to other light bulbs.
LEDs are also known for a high-lumen output, which translates into turning around 70% of the energy that they produce into the light. This is what makes these bulbs far more efficient when you compare them to traditional bulbs that waste energy by turning this energy into heat. For example, a 6-watt LED bulb produces the same light that 40-watt incandescent bulbs do. At the same time, their cooler temperature also means they are much safer to handle or operate.
3. High Intensity & Brightness
LEDs are known for generating very high brightness levels. This is the reason why wattage should no longer be used to measure brightness. Instead, it is better to consider the lumen output of a bulb when you switching to LEDs or any other type of energy-efficient lighting.
4. Wider Color Range
Incandescent bulbs require filters or gels to produce different shades or colors of light. LEDs provide a much wider selection of color temperatures and colors without having to use filters or gels, which often fade or burn out over time. With an LED, it’s the diode (or the phosphorus coating), that undergoes changes. This is what alters the color or shade of the light emitted. The shade will also remain the same for the lifespan of the bulb.
5. Lower Radiated Heat
Incandescent bulbs work by heating up a filament to a high enough temperature in order to produce light. LED bulbs emit electromagnetic energy to produce light. The process of changing this energy into a source of light rather than using heat is what enables LEDs to function at a much lower temperature when compared to other light bulbs.
LEDs are reliable and very durable lights that still perform well in cold temperatures. They can also withstand more vibration and impact when compared to traditional light bulbs since they do not contain fragile parts or filaments. These features make them best suited for situations where the temperature is constantly fluctuating, and when the light bulb is exposed to movements or jostling such as in-ceiling fan fixtures or when used outdoors.
7. Instant Illumination
With traditional bulbs, it is common to wait a few seconds before you will be able to see anything. Unlike CFLs, which take a few seconds to start warming up, LEDs will operate at maximum brightness as soon as you turn the light on at a switch.
8. Directional Lighting
By design, LEDs usually emit light in only one direction, instead of all around. This assists with lowering energy consumption since the light is not trapped within diffusers and reflectors or wasted. This helps to keep more than 50% of the light that is generated from leaving the bulb. This directional characteristic of the output of these bulbs makes LEDs perfect for applications like recessed downlights and task lighting.
