LED is an acronym for Light Emitting Diode. Most people had their first experience with LED technology when using a calculator or small electronic device.
Today we even have LED headlamps for cars.
San Diego LED lights are becoming more and more popular due to the environmental and cost savings.
LEDs are the best way to to light your home – much better than incandescent bulbs or toxic Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL)
Some Key things to keep in mind are:
- LEDs will save you money over both CFLs and regular incandescent lights. One study found that over the lifetime of an LED light (estimated at 50,000 hours), LEDs cost just $90 to operate — CFLs, by comparison, cost $160 over the same period while incandescent cost a whopping $652. These are just hard costs.
- LED lights use 75 to 80 percent less energy than older incandescent lights. And because lighting consumes a significant amount of household energy, the savings can add up fast. Remember, the more energy efficient you are, the smaller the San Diego Solar Installation you will need.
- LED lights can be dimmed, which is not always the case with CFLs. Additionally, LEDs come on instantly (again, better than CFLs) and don’t flicker (ditto). Finally, their light output is constant over the lifetime of the lamp, fading only when the lamps are at the end of their very, very long life.
- LED bulbs do not emit heat. Incandescent and halogen lights can be very hot, which leads to a number of safety issues. LEDs, on the other hand, are totally cool even after several hours of use — they’re even cooler than CFLs.
