Why do the rich use LED’s ?

LED (Light Emitting Diodes) are small, solid light bulbs which are extremely energy efficient and long lasting, exceptionally longer life span (60,000 hours), enormously lower energy usage (90% more efficient), reduced maintenance costs and higher safety. The expensive price is covered by its long life and energy saving. Because of their small size and being directional, they are ideal for lighting cook tops, work and study areas or even to highlight special spaces of your home.

LED Lighting.1

LEDs operate differently than traditional incandescent light bulbs. This makes LEDs far more rugged and durable than traditional incandescent light bulbs. LED technology also offers many additional advantages over incandescent, neon and compact fluorescent lighting devices – such as longer life span, enormously lower energy usage reduced maintenance costs and higher safety. LEDs are currently being used for a wide variety of applications such as: residential lighting, aerospace, architectural lighting, automotive, aviation, broadcasting, electronic instrumentation, entertainment and gaming, industrial automation and controls, the military, traffic and safety & transportation.

Because LEDs are small and directional, they are ideal for lighting countertops for cooking and reading recipes. The color can appear more cool or blue than is typically desirable in a kitchen, it is important to compare products to find the best fixture for your space.

LEDs can save up to 85 % of the electricity used by incandescent bulbs, up to 50 % of electricity used by CFLs, and up to 30 % used by fluorescent tube lighting. To give you an idea of the savings, a 12 watt LED has a light output comparable to that of a 60 watt incandescent or halogen bulb, but uses 85% less energy than the incandescent light, and 50% less than a CFL.

LED lights are designed to last about 50 times longer, which means less maintenance and less time spent on replacing burned-out bulbs that are often very hard to get at. The lifespan of an LED is simply unmatched by other types of lighting. Your typical LED light will last approximately eleven years based on twelve hours of use per day.

After the lifespan of the downlights is over, there are other advantages as well. This type of lighting does not contain hazardous materials, such as mercury. Since fluorescent tubes and CFLs contain mercury, they must be properly disposed of in order to prevent this element from contaminating public dumps and landfills.
