LED lighting - Something to think about Increasing carbon emissions

Tags: LED lighting,environmentally-beneficial,energy-saving

Increasing carbon emissions is becoming an important issue for the global survival. We are trying to educate people about the cost-saving and environmental benefits of alternate systems for their regular uses which consumes less energy in their development and collectively they bring about an environmentally-beneficial outcome.

By switching to energy-saving LED light bulbs and applications at suitable areas, you lessen greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. LED Light is an effective step toward green economy. LED Lighting give us beautiful light that is more efficient and longer lasting than both incandescents and CFLs.LED lighting products use approximately 85 percent less energy and last up to 50 times longer than incandescent lights. Consuming less energy results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions being released into our environment.

LED lighting uses less than half that of a comparable fluorescent. And unlike any fluorescent, LED lighting contains no harmful mercury. On average in Australia, running a 65-watt light for 50,000 hours would cost $325 in electricity alone. Because the most LED uses only 12 watts, running the light for 50,000 hours will cost only $60 under the same scenario.

LED lighting is durable, hence won't break like a bulb. LEDs, being solid state components, are difficult to damage with external shock, unlike fluorescent and incandescent bulbs which are fragile. In addition, you will no longer spend time or money replacing lights means no bulb-replacements, no ladders, no ongoing disposal program. Over the lifetime of one LED, you will save $265 dollars or more on your electric bill alone. Unlike incandescent fixtures, LED lighting is comfortable to the touch. LEDs produce very little heat, and it reduces the burden and cost of the air conditioning system.

LEDs also light up immediately when you turn them on and they do not burnout as a result of frequent turning off and on, as CFLs tend to do. LEDs mostly fail by dimming over time, rather than the abrupt burn-out of incandescent bulbs. The solid package of the LED can be designed to focus its light. Incandescent and fluorescent sources often require an external reflector to collect light and direct it in a usable manner.

LED superior color quality enhances the appearance of people, room surfaces, furnishings and merchandise. Because LED lights are designed to least for 50,000 or more hours, there is less landfill waste from burned-out incandescent bulbs and no dangerous mercury waste from fluorescents. LEDs are not visible, so you won't be distracted by hotspots or glare. The only thing you'll experience is life under beautiful, glowing light. With LED, there is no compromise. You can have safe, affordable, beautiful lighting that makes a positive difference. Modern LEDs are available with convenient features asdimming on some indoor models and automatic daylight shut-off and motion sensors on some outdoor models. LEDs are the most efficient lighting system produce more light per watt than incandescent bulbs.

LEDs can emit light of an intended color without the use of color filters that traditional lighting methods require. This is more efficient and can lower initial costs.
