As apart of the new Green Deal initative, LED lightning is being recommended to home owner and businesses to help you save money and the energy.
LEDs use a different technology again – light-emitting diodes. A diode is a simple solid state electronic device that allows electricity to flow in one direction only. A light-emitting diode, as the name suggests, emits light as the electricity flows through it.
LEDs have been around for many years, but they only emit a small amount of light. It has taken a long time to develop a lamp that can fit enough LEDs together into a small space to be an effective replacement for domestic lighting. LED like-for-like replacements for halogen downlighters are now available from specialist suppliers and some retail chains. They are still expensive, but they are the most efficient option of all, they last far longer than any other technology, and they will pay for themselves several times over before they need replacing.
Look for the Energy Saving Trust Recommended label on LED lamps and fittings to ensure you are buying the most energy efficient products on the market. The lamps and luminaires do cost you more to buy but last an incredible 50,000 hours and use very little energy.
