LED Lighting

LED Lighting

LED lighting is a popular form of energy efficient lighting that can be found in many commercial and domestic applications, from display lighting in a retail business to a replacement for your bayonet type incandescent household bulb.

LEDs are a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light, using 85% less energy than other typical lighting methods. This form of lighting reduces running costs in the long term and potentially offers less environmental impact.

LEDs have a much longer lifespan than other types of lighting, up to 20 years in some cases and LED lighting is also capable of displaying a broad spectrum of colours, which adds to their appeal in display environments.

Although generally more expensive than conventional lighting, LED lighting will eventually pay off, and in the meantime, you will get less radiant heat production, longer bulb life, and you could even control them with your Smartphone.
