Things you didn’t know about LED’s

Light-emitting diode (LED) lights are the biggest thing to hit lighting since the electric light was invented! The best thing about them is, undoubtedly, the fact that they use up to 85% less energy than conventional bulbs.

Today’s LED bulbs can be six-seven times more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lights and cut energy use by more than 80 percent. Unlike incandescent bulbs - which release 90 percent of their energy as heat - LEDs use energy far more efficiently with little wasted heat. LED technology allows for pure, simple and beautiful design while remaining energy efficient.

An LED is a type of solid-state lighting that uses a semiconductor to convert electricity into light. Good-quality LED bulbs can have a useful life of 25,000 hours or more - meaning they can last more than 25 times longer than traditional light bulbs! That is a life of more than three years if run constantly 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

LEDs are used in a wide range of applications because of their unique characteristics, which include compact size, ease of maintenance, resistance to breakage, and the ability to focus the light in a single direction instead of having it go every which way.

In short, LED lights are very long-lasting and cost effective to run. They work particularly well as recessed lights in paving and decking, or for highlighting steps and changes in level around the garden.
