Dec 24, 2015: In future, the shift from traditional bulbs to LED bulbs will be quite huge. LED lights are expected to capture more than half of the world?s demand for new lighting. Global response to climate change and the economic benefits of LED lights are some of the factors that can be said to be behind this shift. High-brightness LEDs have emerged within the last few years,but only recently have they been seriously looked upon as a feasible option in general purpose lighting applications.
Before one recommends or installs LED lighting system, one should understand the LED lighting system and the different types of bulbs.
Different types of LED bulbs
LED stands for light-emitting diode. A diode is an electrical component that allows electricity to move in only one direction. All diodes produce some light when electricity flows through them. However, in some types of diodes the light is only a by-product of the diode?s function and the diode itself is not clear enough for the light to escape. Even if the light goes out, it is not always a visible light. Some of the diodes produce infrared light only and are used in remote control devices.
LEDs that emit visible light are available in different colors and strengths, and are used in different contexts, including indicator lights on electronic devices, household lighting, some screens. For a long time LEDs remained too expensive for use in home lighting. It is still costlier than other lighting technologies, but can last much longer and consume a fraction of the energy that traditional light bulbs actually consume.
