Something to Think About!  

Increasing carbon emissions is becoming an important issue for the global survival. We are trying to educate people about the cost-saving and environmental benefits of alternate systems for their regular uses which consumes less energy in their development and collectively they bring about an environmentally-beneficial outcome.By switching to energy-saving LED light bulbs and applications at suitable areas, you lessen greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.

LED Light — An effective step toward green economy.

  • LED Lighting give us beautiful light that is more efficient and longer lasting than both incandescents and CFLs.LED lighting products use approximately 85 percent less energy and last up to 50 times longer than 
  • incandescent lights. Consuming less energy results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions being released into our environment.
  • ·LED lighting uses less than half that of a comparable fluorescent. And unlike any fluorescent, LED lighting contains no harmful mercury. On average in Australia, running a 65-watt light for 50,000 hours would cost $325 in electricity alone. Because the most LED uses only 12 watts, running the light for 50,000 hours will cost only $60 under the same scenario. 
  • LCD lighting is durable, hence won’t break like a bulb. 
  • LEDs, being solid state components, are difficult to damage with external shock, unlike fluorescent and incandescent bulbs which are fragile.
  • In addition, you will no longer spend time or money replacing lights means no bulb-replacements, no ladders, no ongoing disposal program. Over the lifetime of one LED, you will save $265 dollars or more on your electric bill alone.

Unlike incandescent fixtures, LED lighting is comfortable to the touch.

  • LEDs produce very little heat, and it reduces the burden and cost of the air conditioning system. 

  • ·LEDs also light up immediately when you turn them on and they do not burnout as a result of frequent turning off and on, as CFLs tend to do.  
  • LEDs mostly fail by dimming over time, rather than the abrupt burn-out of incandescent bulbs. 
  • The solid package of the LED can be designed to focus its light. Incandescent and fluorescent sources often require an external reflector to collect light and direct it in a usable manner.
  • ·LED superior color quality enhances the appearance of people, room surfaces, furnishings and merchandise. 
  • Because LED lights are designed to last for 50,000 or more hours, there is less landfill waste from burned-out incandescent bulbs and no dangerous mercury waste from fluorescents.
  • LEDs are not visible, so you won't be distracted by hotspots or glare. The only thing you'll experience is life under beautiful, glowing light.
  • With LED, there is no compromise. You can have safe, affordable, beautiful lighting that makes a positive difference.  
  • Modern LEDs are available with convenient features asdimming on some indoor models and automatic daylight shut-off and motion sensors on some outdoor models.
  • LEDs are the most efficient lighting system produce more light per watt than incandescent bulbs.  
  • ·LEDs can emit light of an intended color without the use of color filters that traditional lighting methods require. This is more efficient and can lower initial costs.   

Ineffective lighting? Out-of-reach bulbs? High energy bills? LED is the solution. 

LED Lighting and its Technology

A light-emitting diode (LED), is an electronic light source. LEDs work by the effect of electroluminescence, andare used as indicator lamps in many kinds of electronics. Latest modern LEDs are available across the visible, ultraviolet and infra red wavelengths, with very high brightness. 


LED Lights Applications 

LEDs present many advantages over traditional light sources including lower energy consumption, longer lifetime, improved robustness, smaller size and faster switching. However, they are relatively expensive and require more precise current and heat management than traditional light sources. 

Applications of LEDs are diverse. They are used as low-energy indicators but also for replacements for traditional light sources in general lighting, automotive lighting and traffic signals. The compact size of LEDs has allowed new text and video displays and sensors to be developed, while their high switching rates are useful in communications technology. Using LEDs to create stable white light for general lighting still presents new challenges as smart design, sensitivity to voltage and consistent brighter light.

Some common easily available LED lighting products

Diffused bulbs

 In this style LED bulb, clusters of LEDs are covered by a dimpled lens which spreads the light out over a wider area. Available in standard Edison bases, these bulbs have many uses, such as area lighting for rooms, porches, reading lamps, accent lamps, hallways and low-light applications where lights remain on for extended periods.
 

Diffused high power bulbs

Designed for standard household use, these bulbs produce light equivalent to a 100-watt incandescent bulb. The EvoLux (pictured), and ZetaLux (pictured above) are the first UL Listed and FCC approved LED light bulbs for general household illumination.


Track Lighting

Available in pin base or standard (Edison) base, LEDs are ideal for track lighting. LEDs do not contribute to heat buildup in a room because no matter how long they remain on, they do not get hot to the touch. Also, because they are 90% more efficient than incandescents, and last 10 times longer than CFLs, the frequency of changing bulbs is greatly reduced.
 
Recessed Downlight and Spotlight bulbs

LEDs are now available for standard recessed lighting pots and housings. The light output and color quality are similar to incandescent downlights, but draws only about one-fifth of the power. Also, because they are 90% more efficient than incandescents. and last 10 times longer than CFLs, the frequency of changing bulbs is greatly reduced.
 

Spotlight and Floodlight LEDs
The spotlight LED lacks a dispersing lens, so it appears brighter as its light is directed forward. It runs cool and will last over 50,000 hours due to advanced thermal management design. The floodlight model gives a spread-out dispersed light. Well suited for ceiling lights, outdoor floodlights. retail display lighting, landscape lighting and motion sensors.

LED -- Uses

With the development of high efficiency and high power LEDs it has become possible to incorporate LEDs in lighting and illumination. Replacement light bulbs have been made as well as dedicated fixtures and LED lamps.  

LEDs are used as street lights and in other architectural lighting where color changing is used. The mechanical robustness and long lifetime is used in automotive lighting on cars, motorcycles and on bicycle lights. 

LEDs have been used for lighting of streets and of parking garages.  

LEDs are used for decorative lighting as well. Uses include but are not limited to indoor/outdoor decor, limousines, cargo trailers, conversion vans, cruise ships, RVs, boats, automobiles, and utility trucks. Decorative LED lighting can also come in the form of lighted company signage and step and aisle lighting in theaters and auditoriums. 

Currently these are considered as the best light source among available technologies in terms oflong fixture life, low energy consumption and ultimately less carbon footprint.LED lighting is a rapidly evolving technology that produces light in a whole new way. It is already beginning to surpass the quality and efficiency of existing lighting technologies, such as fluorescent and incandescent . 

Large area LED displays are used as stadium displays and as dynamic decorative displays. Thin, lightweight message displays are used at airports and railway stations, and as destination displays for trains, buses, trams, and ferries. 

The single color light is well suited for traffic lights and signals, exit signs, emergency vehicle lighting, ships' lanterns and LED-based Christmas lights. Red or yellow LEDs are used in indicator and alphanumeric displays in environments where night vision must be retained: aircraft cockpits, submarine and ship bridges, astronomy observatories, and in the field, e.g. night time animal watching and military field use. 

Environmentally friendly options

A single kilowatt-hour of electricity will generate 1.34 pounds (610 g) of CO2 emissions. Assuming the average light bulb is on for 10 hours a day, a single 40-watt incandescent bulb will generate 196 pounds (89 kg) of CO2 every year. The 13-watt LED equivalent will only be responsible for 63 pounds (29 kg) of CO2 over the same time span. A building’s carbon footprint from lighting can be reduced by 68% by exchanging all incandescent bulbs for new LEDs.Economically sustainable

LED light bulbs could be a cost effective option for lighting a home or office space because of their very long lifetimes, even though they have a much higher purchase price.
The next level of advancement will include a line of products incorporating capable of providing an even higher level of illumination. Consumers are now seeing traditional fluorescent, incandescent, and halogen light bulbs being replaced by high power LED lights. 

Our goal is to educate people about the cost-saving and environmental benefits of LED lighting systems. By switching yourself to LED lights, you will save money in the long run and also contribute to lowering the use of resources and taking care of our planet.
