Light-emitting diode, or LED, is a popular lighting technology. LED offers long-lasting and energy saving illumination that has quickly become an industry standard in commercial lighting. Cooper Mechanical Services is the an unlimited electrical contractor in Myrtle Beach offering LED lighting and other commercial and industrial-grade lighting services.
LED is Energy Efficient and Long Lasting
LED lighting can use up to 75% less energy and last up to 25 times longer. The cost-savings and durability are key reasons to build with LED or convert to LED. It is also possible to integrate an LED retrofit to convert from wasteful and inefficient incandescent or halogen lights. In industrial and commercial spaces, LEDs are used both indoor and outdoor for both general lighting as well as directed, task lighting.
What Makes LED Different?
The light source for LED is minuscule (think a fleck of pepper), and white light is produced by a mix of red, green, and blue LEDS.
The biggest difference between incandescent or halogen and LED is that LED emits light in a specific direction. Instead of moving light 360 degrees, LEDs direct light efficiently to the area it is needed, limiting wasted light. Other lighting technologies refract light to a specific direction, which is less efficient.
Additionally, LED are more cooler light sources. LEDs emit very little heat, which compared to incandescent or compact florescent which emit 80-90% of energy as heat, is much more efficient. By emitting less heat, LEDs are a safer option as well.
