Are LED lights energy efficient?
Updated: Nov 8, 2020
LED light or light-emitting diode is one of the most energy-efficient lights in the world of technology. It has developed very quickly and resulted in a vast majority of Energy saving. LED light has more benefits comparing to other kinds of lights. It offers a better quality of light and lasts a long time in comparison to other lights.
Does LED light really save energy?
LED lights have a really updated technology that saves energy. They can change the world of lighting and electricity in the future. LED Lighting comparing to incandescent lighting has a 25 times longer lifespan and uses 75% lesser energy.
If in Canada like other countries or states, people use LED lighting, we can have a great impact on energy saving. By 2027, broadly use of LED light resulted in 348 TWh electricity saving. It means that by using LED lighting more than 30 billion dollars will be saved from losing over electricity prices. This expense can be used for building 44 large electric power plants. Each of these plants can produce 1000 megawatts.
What are the features of LEDs?
LED lighting is very different from other lighting sources. We have other kinds of lighting like CFLs or incandescent bulbs. But they have many advantages comparing to others. We will talk about the differences in the following part:
Light Source: LEDs are designed to make white light. They are a combination of red, green, and blue. Besides, if we want to talk about their size, we can say they are the size of a fleck pepper.
Light Direction: LEDs make you get rid of reflectors and diffusers to trap the light because they direct the light in a specific direction. Many people are interested in LEDs since they can be used for recessed downlights and task lighting. The other types of lighting could not reflect the light in the desired direction. This bug will cause half of the light to never leave the fixture.
Heat: Light bulbs release some of their energy as heat. For example, CFLs turn 80% of their energy to heat. Incandescent bulbs also release 90% of their energy to heat. But this conversion in LED light bulbs is very low and LEDs emit very little hit.
Different types of LED light?
LED light bulbs have really good technology and this makes them available in different forms for both home and industry usage. Every year comes to the newer product and this vast amount of production makes their price very low. The technology made the LED lights more practical and efficient. Some types of LED products are:
Industrial and commercial lighting: efficiency and directional nature of LEDs are the most important factors that we use in industrial and commercial environments. We commonly use LEDs in street lights, parking garage, sidewalk, or any other outdoor environment.
Kitchen under-cabinet lightings: Architectures when designing the kitchen, nowadays they add some LED lights in their design. Using LED lighting in some parts makes the atmosphere of the kitchen more pleasant and elegant. LED lights are directional and very small, so they are absolutely ideal for lighting countertops. It helps you reading recipes and cooking more easily.
LED Replacement Bulbs: Because LED lights have better performance and lower prices, they can be replaced with 40,60 and 75 Watt incandescent bulbs. Before buying LED lights bulbs please Check the Lighting facts label. The product must have the brightness and color you need and prefer. LED products are the best options for incandescent bulbs.
Recessed Downlight: Not only in residential kitchens, hallways, and some bathrooms but also in office and commercial settings we can use recessed downlights. It has been estimated that 20 million recessed downlights are sold each year in the USA. They are installed in homes and offices. LED technology can decrease downlight wattage something around 75% down.
