Make The Switch and Save:
Our LED bulb is the equivalent of forty incandescent bulbs as far as lifespan is concerned. Because the temperature of LED lights do not increase hugely, their lifespan exceeds that of an incandescent bulb by tens of thousands of hours meaning you replace them less often. Not only do you replace LEDs less often, you use less power to brighten an area resulting in lower electrical bills.
LED lights do not only benefit their consumers in regards to consuming up to 90% less energy but they are also less harmful to our environment since they contain and emit no harmful materials, such as mercury which can be found in fluorescent bulbs. The impact of LEDs on topics such as, global warming and pollution of water, soil and air is reduced by almost ten times, in comparison to incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. When you dispose of LED lights they do not leak any harmful waste products that incandescent fluorescent bulbs do. These waste product include: sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, and mercury.
The initial cost of making the switch of LEDs may seem a little daunting, however this cost pays itself back within the first few years of use if no sooner, making the switch that much more desirable.
Light emitting diodes, more commonly referred to as LEDs, are two lead semiconductor devices that produce a visible light when a power is connected. Unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, LEDs do not have a filament that will burn out, also resulting in LED lights not getting especially hot.
How They Work:
LEDs are a semiconductor that illuminate solely by the movement of electrons within it. This happens when an electrical current is connected to the diode which releases photons that we see as light. The color of the light is a direct reflection of the energy gap in the semiconductor, allowing LEDs to produce a broad spectrum of bright colors easily while using very little electricity.
