LED light bulbs are a type of Solid State Lighting with semiconductors that produce light when electrical current is passed through them.
LEDs save money in several ways. They use 50 percent less energy than other lighting sources. Low wattage extends usage, leading to reduced maintenance and replacement costs. Because LED lighting fixtures reduce power, HVAC systems do not strain from compensating for hot bulbs.
LEDs also offer color temperatures into the ranges of 6500K to more closely resemble natural sunlight. LED light bulbs have more lumens per watt than incandescent and halogen bulbs, and the lumens do not depreciate over the life of the bulb.
On top of elite performance, many companies offer 5- to 10-year warranties to ensure the effectiveness of the LEDs. These green lighting solutions are a key to LEED certification and more efficient commercial lighting.
