What Is LED?
LED stands for ‘Light Emitting Diode’, a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light. LED lights use approximately 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting, making them energy and cost efficient. Unlike incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs which emit light and heat in all directions, LEDs are directional light sources, emitting light in a specific direction. For this reason, LED lighting is considered to be energy efficient and can be used in many more light applications.
Governments around the world have passed regulations to phase out incandescent light bulbs in favor of more energy-efficient lighting alternatives. To encourage development and use of alternative lighting sources, the federal government began offering tax incentives to business and tax credits to consumers. Since January 1, 2014 incandescent bulbs have not been manufactured in, nor imported to, the United States because they do not meet current environmental standards.
LED is highly energy efficient, producing more light and less heat at lower cost. LED lights have a significantly longer lifetime of use. Assume 3 hours per day of use, the typical LED will last approximately 25,000 hours (22 years), compared to incandescent bulbs at 1,000-2,000 hours (1-2 years) and flourescent lights at around 6,000 -15,000 hours (6 to 13 years). Advances in technology continue to increase the thermal and economic efficiency of LED lights.
