Not sure if LED is right for your space? We’re answering the most commonly asked questions about LED lighting to help you better understand the emerging trend.
WHAT IS LED?
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which refers to the use of a semiconductor (as opposed to a filament found in incandescent bulbs) to produce light. LED bulbs and fixtures are becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LED?
The number one benefit of using LED is efficiency. LEDs use at least 75% less electricity than standard incandescent bulbs, so they’re better for the environment & your wallet. Upgrading to LED bulbs can save money in the long run because of their low energy use and long life span.
HOW LONG DO LEDS LAST?
HOW DO I KNOW HOW BRIGHT MY LED WILL BE?
Brightness is measured in lumens. More lumens equals more light. It’s also important to understand the color temperature and CRI (color rendering index). Color temperature is measured in kelvins and determines the warmth or coolness of light. 2700K produces a warmer light, while 3500K produces a cooler, white light. Light sources with a higher CRI make colors appear more crisp & clear.
WHERE CAN I USE LEB BULBS & FIXTURES?
Integral LED modules make them extremely versatile for today’s use. LEDs are used in
