Building owners everywhere enjoy significant savings by incorporating LED lamps in their building solutions
An Efficient Lighting Technology
LED is a highly energy efficient lighting technology that lasts longer, is more durable and offers equal or better light quality than florescent lighting. The light-emitting diode (LED) is one of the most rapidly developing lighting technologies. The highly energy efficient lighting technology lasts longer, is more durable and offers equal or better light quality than florescent lighting. LEDs emit very little heat compared to CFLs and emit light in a specific direction, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers. LED lighting is widely available in commercial and industrial products.
White tunable LEDs seem to be the new flavor of the month. Manufacturers are releasing a slate of new products with some already out and others coming out soon. More than a few claim health related benefits or features.
Three out of four lamps operating in commercial buildings are fluorescent, with the majority installed in recessed troffers, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. This large base of lamps is ripe for retrofit to LED, with the main options being LED luminaires, lamps and retrofit kits.
