There is so much hype written about LEDs but what’s really so great about them? And what exactly does LED stand for?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes (sometimes also known as Solid-State Lighting) and they can be used to build energy-efficient lighting products that save energy, help protect the environment, reduce maintenance costs; all whilst making people and things look much more attractive than traditional lighting. And they can last much longer than traditional lighting.
Traditionally LEDs have been used as indicator lights in many electronic devices. More recently, solid state lighting technology has been developed which is viable for general lighting.

So, are LED lights really energy-efficient?

Yes, LED lighting can save up to 85 percent of the electricity used by incandescent bulbs and up to 50 percent of electricity used by fluorescents.

Where are LED lights being used these days then if not only as indicator lights?

Since LED lights are so energy-efficient, the most common applications are places where lights are left working for an extended period of time. You will find LED lights in restaurants, offices, parking lots, streetlights, entertainment venues of all kinds and, of course, in homes.

Why is LED lighting better than incandescent bulbs?

Most of the energy emitted from incandescent bulbs is converted to heat instead of light. That is why
you will burn yourself if you try to touch an incandescent bulb once it’s turned on.
LED lighting is about 85 percent more efficient than incandescent bulbs. Since LEDs consume significant less energy they do not emit as much heat. That is why you typically won’t burn yourself if you try to touch an LED light once it’s turned on.
LED lights are also designed to last about 50 times longer, which means less maintenance and waste.

Why is LED lighting better than fluorescent lighting and CFLs?

LEDs do not contain hazardous materials, such as mercury. Since fluorescent tubes and CFLs contain mercury, they must be properly disposed of in order to prevent mercury from poisoning landfills.
Also, most fluorescent lights cannot be dimmed and many can flicker. Some people are sensitive to this flicker and experience headaches, migraines and eye strain. LED lighting uses solid-state technology, which allows effective dimming in many applications and eliminates flickering.
Fluorescent lights can also take several minutes to achieve full brightness and even longer in cold environments. LED lights are capable of lighting up instantly and can withstand extremely cold conditions, such as those in freezer cabinets or on the streets of frozen Alaska.
High quality LEDs produce better light that shows colour more effectively than fluorescents.

What type of light quality can we expect with LED lights?

Ideally we should be satisfied with the light quality coming from any light—LED or otherwise. The best way to ensure this is to know what colour light you want and how to ask for it. If you want warm light, look for lighting that is close to 2700K. If you want a more neutral light, look for something closer to 3500K and if you want a cooler light, look for 5000K or more. But that’s not all that you need to consider as you also need to be aware of colour rendering.

The ability to make colours look true to life is called colour rendering. The colour rendering index (CRI) characterises light sources in view of their ability to produce “natural light” and can be between 0 and 100. The closer an LED light comes to 100 on the colour rendering index (CRI), the more naturally colours are rendered, and the light is perceived as more pleasant. The CRI of fluorescent tubes is often around 72. Most LED lighting fixtures, from reputable sources, have a CRI of between 90 and 94.

How long can LED lights last?

With the right design, LED lights can have a lifetime of 50,000 hours and even more in continuous operation. Depending on how many hours a day they are operating, they can last from 6 to 7 years or up to as many as 20 to 30 years.
Unlike other lighting technologies LEDs do not completely fail but merely grow dimmer. At the 50,000 hour mark, most LED lights are designed to provide at least 70% of their initial light output. Many different factors, such as fixture design or operating conditions like temperature and current, determine the actual lifetime of an LED.

Aren’t LED lights expensive to buy?

Admittedly, yes LED lighting costs more up front but really, it’s no different than investing in insulation in homes and buildings. LED lights pay for themselves over time with energy savings and lower maintenance costs. So bear this in mind when you initially invest in LED lights.
When building a new building, installing LED lighting is often just about the same cost as traditional technology but you will start saving money, through reduced energy consumption, the minute you flip the switch.
