At JRC, we fit LED lighting in the home, office and outdoors. LED just stands for Light Emitting Diode and although many refer to them as LED bulbs – in fact they are not. LED’s are tiny semiconductors encapsulated in plastic, which protect their components and help focus the light.
We believe that LED lights are the future. One day we might even look back and be shocked we ever used other methods to light our homes.
LED lights have been widely used for some time now in industrial and commercial situations, but have recently become suitable in domestic premises. JRC are experts at LED lighting installations in Glasgow and we thought we’d share with you why we think they are so good, so here’s the top benefits of LED Lighting.
Benefits of LED lighting
- Long lasting
LEDs are rated by manufacturers to operate under normal conditions for approximately 50,000 hours, remarkable compared to a 1000 hour lifespan with incandescent bulbs. This means LED lights last about 10 years and therefore reduce your maintenance costs!
- Suitable for all environments
LEDs are geared up for harsh environments. Did you know they function from -40F to 180F with no delay or required warm up time for them to function?
- Extremely efficient
With standard light bulbs, around 80% of energy is wasted heat as only around 20% of the electric current is used to produce light. On the other hand, LED lights are able to utilise between 80%-90% of the energy provided in the generation of light.
- Environmental benefits
In addition to saving on your electricity bills, you are also reducing energy usage and in turn your carbon footprint.
- Variety of colours LED lighting comes in a range of colours, you can use them for functional purposes or for decoration.
Just look at these videos, this is a WIFI smart phone controlled LED lighting system. It’s pretty smart as it can have the lights at home come on as GPS picks you up nearing the house! Available for indoors and outdoors.
