What Are The Advantages of Using LED Lighting?

Love LED lighting? Lighting has come a long way since the dawn of time. From our very first ancestors who rub 2 flint stones together to produce fire and light, to the incandescent light bulb invented by Thomas Edison, and finally with the current technology, the LED. It has only been recently commercialised in the past 10 years and only in recent years there has been more people switching to using it instead of the traditional incandescent and perhaps even CFLs. What are the advantages of using LED lighting? We will explore further in this article but first, what is LED and how does it work?

LED stands for light emitting diode. It is a forward bias diode which uses a process called electroluminescence to produce light. How the process works is by making electrons pass through a semi-conductor material and moving to a lower energy level. The change in energy level by the electrons results in photons being released and this release of photons results in the light that we see. By adjusting accordingly, we are able to produce a full array of different colours of light.
There are several advantages to using LED lighting.

1. First and most glaringly obvious advantage is the difference in lifespan. A LED has a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours compared to CFL’s lifespan of 10,000 hours and an incandescent light bulb’s lifespan of 1200 hours.

2. LED is more energy efficiency and uses significantly lesser energy (on average approximately 1/10) compared to conventional lighting and it is the most environmentally friendly light source at the moment.

3. By using LED, you will be able to reduce your utility bills as well due to reduced wastage of energy and more efficient usage.

4. You are able to control the lighting. For conventional lights, the light will light up the whole room homogeneously. While for LED, you are able to control the intensity and concentration of light to focus on a particular area and lesser on another area and so on and so forth. This gives you more flexibility in determining the amount of lighting in a particular room and how so.

5. LEDs are generally low temperature and do not produce much heat as attributed to their more energy efficient feature. Also, they are more heat resistant compared to fluorescent lamps.

6. They are also waterproof, more durable and shock resistant to boot. Furthermore, it is environmentally friendly which reduces many different kinds of pollution. It is not made up of any hazardous materials.

7. Their small size of 3mm to 8mm means they have a flexibility that other lightings do not have. They can be used individually or combined in an array and placed in smaller or harder to reach places that conventional lights are not able to do so.

As shown above, there are many advantages of using LED lighting. However as with all things, it has its disadvantages as well. Overall though, its advantages outweigh the disadvantages and it is good to do diligent research into the kind of lighting you require and if you happen to want to use LED, ensure that it is an energy star LED.
