LED lighting facts

News | | By:

LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are:

  • long lasting; LEDs can last up to 10 years at full brightness.
  • energy efficient; LEDs generate very little heat, so a much higher percentage of electrical power goes directly to generating light, reducing power usage.
  • capable of generating a larger spectrum of colors than other forms of lighting.
  • more robust than regular light sources because they are encased in resin.
  • more adaptable to modern electronic circuits.
