Why LED lighting is best?

Why LED lighting is best?

LED is highly energy efficient – Less heat, more light, lower cost. Use less electricity for the same light output – 85% less electricity when compared to conventional lighting and around 18% less electricity compared to CFL. Worldwide, around 20% of electricity is consumed in lighting.

Should I replace my light bulbs with LED?

Previous studies have noted that LEDs reduce spending on energy over time and are a cost-effective alternative to other light bulbs. But those studies did not look at the best time to replace an existing bulb.

What are the pros and cons of LED lighting?


  • The Pros and Cons of LED Lights. July 10, 2020.
  • Pro: Long Lifespan. An LED light bulb has the longest lifespan of all the bulb options.
  • Con: An Upfront Investment Is Required.
  • Pro: Energy-Efficient.
  • Con: Not Great for Dimmers.
  • Pro: Produce Less Heat.
  • Con: They Can Fail Under Heat.
  • Pro: Environmentally Friendly.

Do LED lights consume more electricity?

Yes! LED lights consume 80-90% less energy than incandescent bulbs, and last up to 100,000 hours, versus 3,000 hours for an incandescent. Combine this with the durable construction of LEDs, and savings extend beyond electricity.

What color light is best for bedroom?

The light colours very warm white (2200-2700K) and warm white (3000K) are the most suitable for bedrooms. In general, people don’t prefer to wake up with too bright lighting. Therefore, warm white lighting can be perceived as too bright by some people.

Can an LED bulb be used in any fixture?

As long as the mounting base (socket) is the same size and type, you can use an LED bulb in an existing fixture. If the mounting base isn’t the same size and type, the LED bulb will not fit the socket. You should never use a bulb with a higher wattage than what is recommended for the fixture.

Should I use LED lights in my house?

The reasons why are compelling. For starters, LED bulbs last much longer than incandescent bulbs, and they put out the same amount of light using significantly less energy. That’s great for the environment, and it can save you money on your electricity bill in the long term.

Why choose our pedestrian lighting fixtures?

Whether you’re illuminating a footpath, boardwalk or park, our pedestrian lighting fixtures bring form and function to light.

Are there code requirements for pedestrian lighting?

Although some cities and municipalities have code requirements for pedestrian lighting, many areas have none. However, there are several professional standards that provide recommended methods for the design of pedestrian lighting. Most of these standards provide a methodology, but not specific illumination criteria.

What is the difference between street lighting and pedestrian scaled street lighting?

Pedestrian scaled street lighting is directed toward the sidewalk, positioned lower than roadway lighting (luminaires are mount 12 to 14 feet above the sidewalk), and is more closely spaced than roadway lighting. This lighting should be considered when calculating the maintained foot candles and uniformity of roadway lighting.

What about pedestrian lighting for the neighborhood adjacent to a college campus?

In my last post, Pedestrian Lighting: A Case Study, I outlined a recent JDB Illumination commission to provide pedestrian lighting for a neighborhood adjacent to a college campus. Exterior lighting is critical to create a safe environment whether for a college campus, business park, urban environment, parking lot, public park, or anywhere else.
