May 2017 – LED Lighting: Today’s Top 10 Benefits

Published on: 02/05/2017

Discover the benefits of using LED Lighting in 2017

Residential LED lighting

LED Lighting is now an essential part of our everyday lives, from outdoor lighting in urban areas such as street lights, to lighting in our homes within kitchens and bathrooms to safety precautions such as railway track lighting and signalling.

GD Rectifiers supply heat sinks used for cooling power LED lighting devices, they work with customers on the design and build of customised solutions, as well as providing technical advice and support on the entire process. GD Rectifiers are able to design initial prototypes, pre-production samples and a full production run for most power led lighting cooling requirements.

GD Rectifiers are an ISO 9001:2008 registered company that design and develop bespoke power semiconductor assemblies to control voltage, current and frequency for international industrial markets.

 

Top 10 Benefits of LED Lighting

 

1. Long Life

The long life of an LED light is one of the main reasons why consumers chose them – if you leave the LED fixture on for 8 hours per day it would around 20 years before you’d have to replace the LED bulb. LED’s are different to standard lighting; they don’t burn out and stop working like a standard light instead they emit lower output levels over a long period of time which dims the light and pre-warns consumers that the lights need changing.

 

2. Energy Efficient

LED lighting is today’s most efficient way of illumination and lighting, it is estimated to be 80-90% more efficient than traditional lighting. It is estimated that 80% of the electrical energy is converted to light, while a ca. 20% is lost and converted in to other forms of energy such as heat.

 

3. Durable Quality

LED lights are extremely durable and are built with sturdy components that are highly rugged and can withstand even the roughest conditions. LEDs are resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts, they are considered to make extremely reliable outdoor lighting systems for all weather conditions.

 

4. Safety

Unlike standard lights that contain a multitude of materials such as mercury, LED lights are free from toxic chemicals making them a safe and more energy efficient alternative

 

5. No UV Emissions

Another major benefit of LED lighting is that it produces little infrared light and close to no UV emissions, making LED lights a great choice for goods and materials that are sensitive to heat and UV emissions.

 

6. Design Flexibility

LED lights are flexible in design, they can be combined to any shape and any control of light, colour and distribution. This is an attractive purchasing element for consumers who wish to explore mood lighting.

 

7. Extreme Temperatures

LED lights are ideal for operation under extreme cold and hot temperatures and can remain their performance, whereas a standard lights performance will deteriorate over time.

 

8. Instant Lighting & Switching

LED lights brighten up environments immediately when powered on, which is an advantage for infrastructure projects such as traffic n signal lights, it also contributes towards the energy saving benefits.

 

9. Light Disbursement

LED is designed to focus its light and can be directed to a specific location without the use of an external reflector, still achieving higher application efficiency than conventional lighting.

 

10. Low Voltage Power Supply

Even a low voltage power supply is sufficient for LED illumination, making it easy to use LED lighting in outdoor environments, by connecting an external solar-energy source.
