The LED (light emitting diode) is one of today’s latest advancement in lighting technology. An LED is a small, solid light bulb that uses a semiconductor to convert electricity into light. The LED is (1) long lasting (i.e., they can last more than 25 times longer than traditional light bulbs), are (2) extremely energy efficient (using at least 75% less energy), and (3) can produce light cheaply. Due to their long lifespan, energy, as well as money, is saved in long-term maintenance and replacement costs.
LED are different from incandescent lights, which release 90% of their energy as heat, whereas LED lights generate virtually no heat, making them much safer and reduce the risks of burns and/or fires.
LED are environmental-friendly in that they contain no mercury (unlike fluorescent lighting), and are made from non-toxic materials. LEDs are also recyclable, and are therefore, considered Earth-friendly.
LED lighting is used for a wide variety of lighting applications, such as residential lighting, outdoor lighting, business applications, entertainment, signage, art work, automotive lights, Christmas lighting, and many other creative and innovative ways.
