LED stands for Light-Emitting Diode.
In simple terms, Lumens (denoted by lm) are a measure of the total amount of visible light (to the human eye) from a lamp or light source. The higher the lumen rating the “brighter” the lamp will appear.
The efficacy of the newer led light bulbs is more than five times higher than comparable incandescent bulbs. In other words, LED light bulbs use only about 20% as much electricity to produce the same amount of light. However, because LED bulbs direct a larger percentage of light where it is needed, in many applications they are as much as ten times as effective as incandescent bulbs, reducing energy use by 90%.
LED Lights last greater than 60,000 hours. LED lighting last up to ten years or longer! The standard incandescent light bulb last 1,500 hours.
LED Lights are shock and vibration resistant.
LED lighting has a constant glow and does not flicker like the other types of lights.
The LED Light uses solid state lighting “SSL”.
The LED Bulb, LED Lamp, and other LED Lights are self ballasted using LED energy saving green technology which is environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
The LED lights don’t put out harmful UV rays for the environment. The EPA encourages the use of LED lighting. The LED lights emit the intended color without using a filter to do so.
LED lights generate very little heat. They are ideal for kitchens, dens, offices, or anywhere you are working in close proximity to a standard light bulb. That is why LED Lights are so energy efficient.
The simple answer is yes, as long as the LED bulb uses less wattage than your fixture. … If your socket says not to exceed 60-Watts, it is referring the dangers of high heat output associated with incandescent bulbs. However, LED’s do not emit dangerous levels of heat.
Some LED lights will work with dimmer switches. However, lights that run on 120V AC are not dimmable.
The Color Correlated Temperature (CCT) is given in the description of each of our white led bulbs. The color (CCT) of our white bulbs ranges from a warm yellow white (2700K) to a cool blue white (7000K).
By comparison, a typical incandescent bulb has a CCT of 2800K. A typical halogen is a bit higher, maybe 3500K. Daylight white is 4500K and a cool white fluorescent is 6000K or more.
The human eye adapts to background light so that even a daylight white bulb will look slightly blue in a room illuminated mainly with incandescent bulbs. Similarly, an incandescent bulb will look very yellow or even orange in midday sunlight.
Yes, the LED lights can be used outside all season. The LED light bulbs are CE and/or UL listed for indoor and outdoor use.
Yes, the LED tube lights have instant turn on and there is no wait compared to the fluorescent lights that take time to light up.
