Why Choose LED's?
Our LEDs offer excellent visibility and colour accuracy, gaining more savings when it comes to energy efficiency. Compared to the common HPS lamps the energy-saving light bulbs consume 40-80% less electricity than do standard HPS lamps.
Do LEDs get hot?
LEDs work well to keep your environment cool in the summer months. Where Incandescent lamps lose 90% of their energy to heat-loss and CFLs lose about 33%, LEDs only lose about 10% of their energy as heat. However, be careful when touching an LED light near the base. This area (heat sink) can get quite warm at times, especially if operated all day as it's necessary to draw heat away from the LEDs to the back of the lamp.
Do LEDs work well in extreme temperatures?
The typical range for operating temperature of LED lights is from -20°C to 50°C. Unlike CFLs, LEDs work very well in cold temperatures. However, hotter temperatures like saunas might not be appropriate for LEDs if you want to ensure their full lifetime.
How do you know what LED lights to choose?
During our Lighting Assessment, we'll evaluate what LED is most suited to your location Not all LED lights are equal. There are many variables to consider including: the colour of the light (colour temperature), the quality of the light (Colour Rendering Index – CRI), whether it is dimmable, if it can be used in wet or damp locations, the light output (lumens), the wattage and voltage of the LED.
