Cut Down Your Energy Bill with Energy Saving LED Lights

Time:2015-07-24 Views:2818 Compile:SUNPER


Most people are nowadays facing the challenge of high energy bills in their homes, businesses and any other place where they use light. It is wish of everyone to cut down the energy bills as much as possible since this will help in saving. If you are among them, you do not have to worry anymore since you can start using energy saving lights and surely the energy cost will be lowered. Here is what you should know concerning energy saving LED lights.


In full LEDs means Light Emitting Diodes. These devices are mostly used in the day to day life. They have been out into a wide variety of varied functions and applications. They are used in the tiny lights that blink in equipment to show status, messages on the sign boards and numbers on the digital clocks to TV screens. Infrared LEDs are commonly used in remote control machines, cameras and in other similar gadgets.


How LEDs work

LEDs work on a simple principle of semiconductor diodes. Light of a certain frequency is emitted when electricity passes through. Light comprises of photons that are propagated as electromagnetic waves and it can be produced by electroluminescence as well as incandescence. The only difference between LED bulb and normal bulb is the way light is produced. An incandescent bulb which is the normal bulb produces light by heating up the filament. Once the filament has been heated up, photons get emitted. On the other hand, light in the energy saving LED lights is produced by electroluminescence whereby the emission of photons occurs when a semiconductor material has been electronically excited. It does not have a filament since it may burn out.


Emission of light

Emission of light from the LED lights is one direction, one half-space of 180. LED lights are more resistant as well as tolerant to heavy shocks and vibrations. They exhibit constant and longevity use. This makes them to be fit for various applications such as traffic lights. In addition to this, their small size makes them to be accommodated easily in any type of electric circuit. It is normally used in numbers to avoid total failure of the system in case one LED light fails. They can be brightened and dimmed easily by simply reducing the power or else switching it on and off in fast cycles.


Types of energy saving LED lights

There are those that emit visible light by the current running in a semiconductor and those which emit light by use of organic compounds as the semiconductor material know as OLED. Each type is used for different applications. LED lights are gradually becoming common for both industrial and household lighting.


How to convert to LED

The most used way is to retrofit the existing fixture. This allows you to remove the existing ballast and bulb and install the LED kit. Retrofitting is the best way since it allows you keep the existing fixtures as well as eliminate the cost and time of disposing them. You do not have to acquire permit for you to retrofit unlike in replacement.


Above is all about the energy saving lights including how they work, how light is emitted, the different types available as well as how you may convert to LED. You may start using LED lights and everything will be okay for you.
