LED bulbs consume 90% less energy than traditional light bulbs. They also last 10-20 times longer. Over the lifetime of a typical LED light bulb, households could save a significant amount of money from reduced energy bills. Unlike energy-saving CFLs, LED light bulbs can also be recycled.
LED light bulbs are still a relatively new technology, and in the past, they have been much more expensive than traditional bulbs. However, in the last 6 years, the price of LED light bulbs has dropped by around 80%. While they cost more upfront, LED bulbs will actually save households money, thanks to their energy efficiency.
In most cases, are bulbs are the same size if not slightly smaller than the bulbs they replace. That is because LED technology packs a lot of light in a small package.
LED Bulbs are the perfect retrofit for your existing light fixtures. We have standard bases, candelabra, standard or Edison (E26), mogul (E39), MR16 and other typical bases that are common with incandescent and halogen installations. For fluorescent tubes, we have bi-pin, single pin and HO Ends. We carry PL based bulbs in G23, GX23, G24 and GX24 bases.
Color temperature for light bulbs is measured on the Kelvin scale. LED Bulbs come in a variety of colors, but the most common is in a range from 2700K to 7500K. The unfortunate thing is that the only consistent measurement is the Kelvin scale, Many manufacturers like to use terms like Day White, Natural White, Warm White and Cool White, but there is not a standard that defines a Kelvin temperature to associate with those terms. The general rule [...]
It all depends what you are converting. Incandescent to LED, fluorescent to LED, Metal Halide to LED. Fortunately, we built a very simple and information Energy savings calculator. Enter in a few fields or select one of our existing energy savings scenario, and let it calculate your energy savings. We tried to make it simple and easy to use. But it is not uncommon to see at least a 70%+ savings on your energy consumption.
LEDs are comprised of 3 main components: the LED’s (the chip set that produces light), the driver (converts AC to DC) and the heat sink (to keep everything cool). LEDs take DC power from the driver and create light. The heat sink captures heat from the LEDs and the drivers. Although LEDs produce significantly less heat than the light bulbs we have been used to over the past century, the heat they produce must be managed. The better this [...]
This is usually used in relation to strip lighting length. 3528 means the SMD chips that line the strip measure 3.5mm x 2.8mm, while 5050 means the chip size is 5mm x 5mm
This could de due to a number of different reasons. To see if your bulb is faulty you must Ensure that the bulb is receiving power from a switch/dimmer Check the bulb is securely placed in the fitting Place the bulb in an alternative fitting on the same circuit to see if it works
Yes you can. In fact, our strip lighting and MR16s work exclusively on 12V circuits.
