As the world progresses toward more environmentally-friendly choices to help reduce energy consumption, light-emitting diodes (LED) have become a popular choice for consumers wanting to replace costly and inefficient incandescent bulbs. When it comes to lighting an event, modular LED lightings are a fantastic choice for lowering electricity bills and saving energy. Plus, its singular look will liven up any event.
Without going into advanced explanations of electronics, LEDs are basically tiny light bulbs that conduct electricity using semiconductor material. Electrical current properly run through the semiconductor material causes electrons to move in such a way that the resulting photons create light. The semiconductor material within LED lighting focuses most of the light production externally rather than absorbing it.
On the other hand, incandescent light bulbs contain a filament that is inefficient in the use of energy to produce light. According to the Wall Street Journal, “…most of today’s incandescent bulbs will be phased out (some specialty bulbs are exempt) by 2014 and replaced by more efficient alternatives. While cheap at 25 to 50 cents a pop, incandescent bulbs waste nearly all their energy in heat output.”
The lifespan of an LED light is greater than that of the incandescent light bulb, adding another benefit of less waste production. LED lighting has been around for quite some time; however, recent cost reductions in the production of semiconductor material have made LED’s a great choice for everyday lighting needs.
