What is efficient lighting?

Efficient lighting should be the goal of any home or business. The three objectives of efficient lighting are: to reduce energy consumption, extend the life of the bulbs and reduce the impact on the environment. Essential requirements for a whole new generation of light bulbs and luminaires.

Thanks to LED technology these three objectives are beginning to achieve this technology is currently the most important in the lighting sector. The savings and benefits obtained with this type of technology are easily demonstrable.

Advantage

Within the energy consumption of an installation, the system represents a significant percentage. It is therefore increasingly important to seek efficient lighting technologies and lighting control systems, allowing to reduce energy consumption in lighting by more than 80%. The advantages of LED lighting are as follows:

High efficiency

With Led lamps, the highest light efficiency has been achieved, reaching up to 130-150 lumens per watt in the most efficient bulbs, 6 times more than halogen, for example, which is only 20 to 25 lumens per watt.

Very low consumption

They consume 2.5 times less than a conventional low-consumption light bulb and 8.9 times less than an incandescent light bulb of those of a lifetime, which entails economic savings, which can reach 90% in the electricity bill, so there is a rapid amortization of the investment.

Duration

In LED bulbs there is no point where they stop working, but their degradation is gradual throughout their life. A duration between 30,000 and 50,000 hours is considered, until its luminosity falls below 70%, that means between 10 and 30 years in an application of 10 hours a day 300 days / year, reducing maintenance and replacement costs.

Quality of light emitted

The CRI or random color index, provides us with a measure of the quality of light, LED bulbs have a CRI of around 90, making the nuances of light much more appreciated. The one obtained by fluorescent bulbs and so-called “low consumption” bulbs have a very unnatural light, with a very low CRI around 44.

Low voltage

The possibility of feeding at 12 and 24 Volts. It reduces the risks of electrocution, in addition the wiring can be clearly inferior in section.

Low heat emission

By consuming little energy, LED bulbs emit little heat. It is the so-called cold light. For example, a halogen bulb spends 50W, approximately 45W in heat emission, this supposes an extraordinary expense in air conditioning, being necessary an additional 70W to get rid of the heat generated by that bulb.

Instant response

The turning on and off of the LED bulbs is very fast, unlike other systems it does not degrade by the number of ignitions; which makes them very useful in motion detection on and off systems.

Ecological

LED bulbs are totally recyclable and ecological since they do not contain mercury, or toxic materials such as fluorescent lamps, or CFLs.

Endurance

LED lamps are much more resistant to shocks, and even those with a glass bulb can continue to function if it breaks.

Emergency

Their low consumption makes them ideal for emergency lighting systems using a battery or auxiliary generator system, so they can save on parallel lighting systems. They will become essential in hospitals and places that require failsafe lighting.

Versatility

They allow the production of light of all kinds of colors, including mixing them using RGB LEDs, and can be dimmable from 0 to 100, allowing greater energy control. In addition, thanks to their small size, they facilitate the manufacture of all types of lamps: tubes, flat panels, LED strips, street lamps, industrial spotlights, etc.

Lower CO2 emissions

By significantly reducing consumption, CO2 emissions from electricity production are being reduced.

They do not emit ultraviolet rays

So they attract less insects.

Where to use LED lighting?

Currently, LED lighting can be used anywhere since it has a wide variety of luminaires both indoors and outdoors, however, the amortization of making the change to this type of luminaire will be less where there are a high number of lighting hours (<8 / day) and / or inefficient technologies. For instance:
Offices – Restaurants – Shops – Gymnasiums – Hotels – Parkings – Supermarkets – Industrial buildings – Neighborhood communities – Schools – Residences – Clinics
