Why LED?
2012-05-08

LED lighting isn't a new technology; in fact, it has been with us since the 1960's. LED light bulbs were originally used as a replacement for incandescent indicators and displays in laboratory equipment and eventually in TV's, watches, radios and calculators.
With the current looming energy crisis in South Africa, and pressure exerted on governments and businesses alike for more sustainable energy solutions, LED lights have a bright future in space lighting solutions.
Led light bulbs save electricity
The lighting efficiency of the new high power led light bulbs is nearly eight times that of incandescent lights, and twice as high as compact fluorescent lights. Led bulbs also emit a much higher percentage of light in the desired direction. This makes them even more efficient compared to either incandescent or fluorescent for task lighting, desk lamps, reading lights, spotlights, flood lights, and track lighting. With colored led lights there is simply no comparison. All of the light output from led bulbs can be a specific color. With other light sources much of the light produced consists of unwanted colors which must be filtered out. Led light bulbs also generate very little unwanted heat. The energy savings may be doubled in air-conditioned environments where each watt of incandescent lighting can add another watt or more to the power needed for air conditioning. The EPA encourages the use of innovative light source technologies such as led light bulbs.
Led lighting saves on bulb replacement
Led bulbs can operate for 50,000 hours or more. One led light bulb can easily outlast 30 incandescent bulbs, or 6 compact fluorescents! Led bulbs cost less than the bulbs they replace. Operating 12 hours per day, led light bulbs can last 7 years or more! Led light bulbs are not sensitive to shock, vibration, or the extreme temperature changes that can quickly ruin fragile incandescent bulbs. And unlike fluorescent bulbs which wear out much faster if they are frequently turned on and off, led bulbs are not affected by frequent on-off switching. The long life of led light bulbs reduce the time, effort and cost of replacement.
Led lighting increases safety and security
The high reliability of led light bulbs increases safety and security. There is no waiting for led light bulbs to warm up. Led bulbs light up instantly at full brightness, even in the coldest weather.
Led lights are safer
Led bulbs operate at much lower temperatures. Halogen and incandescent lights are hot enough to cause fire, and they frequently do. Led lights also emit no damaging ultraviolet so they will not cause fading and aging of artwork or other sensitive materials. Fluorescent and halogen lights can cause significant damage over time.
Eco Friendly
You'll never again have to choose between inefficient incandscents and fluorescents that contain mercury. LED lighting is safe, environmentally friendly and contains no toxic mercury.
 LED lights use 90% less energy than conventional incandescent bulbs and less than half the energy of compact fluorescent lamps. Consuming less energy results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions being released into our environment. 
LED products are designed to last for 50,000 or more hours, there is less waste generated from used or burnt out light bulbs, some of which may contain Mercury.
Our LED Lighting products are mercury-free and require no special disposal procedures.
Efficiency
The light output is comparable to that of a 40 to 100 watt incandescent light. Our LED lighting provides efficiency and enables consumers to save hundreds over the life of the light, without compromising beauty or the environment.
Save Energy
 LED Lights uses only 10% on average of power. That's 90% less energy spent per incandescent light, and 50% less than a CFL. Save Energy, Save Money.
Longevity
LED's last 50,000 hours or more. Most home owners using their lights 3 - 4 hours a night will never have to replace them!

No More Maintenance
Constantly changing light bulbs is costly especially for business, this cost is drastically reduced due to the life span of LED Lights
Beauty
Colors Fully Revealed
LED lights have a higher color rendering, so everything under them looks more vibrant and life like. Choose warm white or white lighting.
