These days, LED (light emitting diode) lighting is commonly used in commercial and residential settings alike. This is due to the fact that LED lighting is more energy efficient and less expensive than other types of lighting. In residential environments, LED lighting fixtures can be installed as a substitute for existing fixtures, or as stand alone fixtures. LEDs are great for producing big spotlights outdoors, and for use as normal sized recessed lights and small task lights indoors.
Because LED lighting fixtures tend to use less energy and produce higher luminance, they are installed in many workplaces. LED computer displays are a mainstay in many offices. Moreover, conference rooms, lobbies and car parks can be illuminated with LED lighting too. Businesses that adopt this technology often say that they consume almost half the amount of energy they used to consume when using traditional lighting.
Usually, selecting the most suitable LED lighting is a question of identifying appropriate LEDs for specific applications. It is best to start by carefully evaluating the lighting requirements of the location where the LED lights will be fitted. Once this has been determined, it is fairly easy to choose the right color profile, style and power of LED fixture. Reputable LED manufacturers always offer details about the light output and power consumption of their products. This enables customers to directly compare LED lighting fixtures with other kinds of lighting. Energy Star ratings are awarded to lighting fixtures that are particularly energy efficient.
With the benefit of superior lighting for a lower price, numerous hotels, factories, eateries and other commercial outlets have begun to use LED lighting fixtures. Examples of these fixtures include LED wall washers, LED light panels, LED spotlights and LED rope lighting. As well as being energy efficient, these fixtures are aesthetically pleasing. For this reason, many architects and interior decorators are including LED lighting fixtures in their designs and plans. In addition to these advantages, LED lighting is also safer than traditional lighting, because the bulbs do not become hot or shatter easily. Better still, LED bulbs are eco friendly because they are recyclable.
