Greener Ideas LED Lighting Products

What are the benefits of LED Lights?

LED Lights have many benefits, some of them are:
1. UV and Flicker free
2. They have very low operating temperatures making climate control systems more efficient.
3. They have life expectancies of 50,000 hrs plus. Lasting 10 times longer than traditional lights.
4. The minimum LED product warranty our products come with is 3 years. NO maintenance costs guaranteed in the warranty period.
5. No harmful gases or mercury vapor which provide problems to disposal and added harm to our environment
6. By reducing energy up to 90% it means the carbon footprint for that service is also reduced by 90%
7. By design they offer many new approaches to how we see lighting.

Are LEDs dimmable?

Greener Ideas is now able to offer LED lighting options that are dimmable.

How does an LED work?

LED’s are semiconductor diodes which work by creating a positive – negative junction (or p-n). Once power is provided to the diode, a current flows from the anode (positive) to the cathode (negative). Electrons and electron holes then flow into the junction from electrodes, so when an electron meets a hole it creates a lower energy level providing energy as light. In practice 90% of the electricity consumed by an LED is converted into light, whereas a standard bulb only converts around 15%. LEDs are significantly more energy efficient than normal halogen bulbs, in fact around 90% more efficient. With the recent rises in energy bills both commercial organisations and households can make real savings and reduce their carbon footprint by replacing inefficient halogens and CFL’s with LED alternatives.

Who is using LED lighting?

EVERYONE! Universities, Councils, Facilities Managers, Architects and lighting designers are specifying entire lighting packages in their new designs. Contractors are using them in everything from custom kitchens to retail stores. Many homeowners are replacing their incandescent lights with LED bulbs. LED lighting can replace every instance of old lighting technology; as well as create entirely new lighting applications due to its versatility. Your imagination is its only limitation.
