There are numerous advantages of applying LED light bulbs to your home and lighting applications. LEDs are energy efficient and produce light up to 90% more efficiently than incandescent light bulbs. It has a wide range of color temperature to create multiple mood in space and long lifespan to save you money and energy in maintenance and replacement costs. How do they work? An electrical current passes through a microchip, which illuminates the tiny light sources called LEDs and the result is visible light. To prevent performance issues, the heat LEDs produce is absorbed into a heat sink, resulting in low heat output and a cool surface. LEDs are commonly used in electronics and automotive industries, as well as for signage and everyday usage. They are ideal for various lighting applications, including indoor celling lights, decorative light fixtures, and outdoor landscape lighting. The most popular types of LED light bulbs for general purposes are standard LEDs, Downlight, and Globe bulb.
