An LED light is part of the latest technology that has hit the lighting industry. Today, it is a versatile way of lighting any place. LED is a very tiny light-emitting diode that operates on an electroluminescence technology. The led lighting strips are equipped with semiconductor chips, which emit light as electricity is passed through them. These strips come in a long roll where the distinct pieces of LEDs are mounted on a flexible band, allowing to cut at particular intervals and making it convenient to fit into intricate and smaller places. Its flexibility makes LED applicable to various places with a bit of users’ creativity and dexterity.
Types of lighting:
There are a countless number of led lights available where the most common ones are…
• Single coloured lighting strips with either cool white that is a bit pale or warm white that is bright and more vibrant.
• Colour changeable red, green and blue coloured led lights or a fixed colour in a strip of combined colours.
The white colour lights are mostly used for general household or commercial lighting such as restaurants, cafes, stores, etc. But if you want to add another dimension to your interior, you may opt for the colourful led lights as a great alternative to general colour schemes.
Popular uses of LED lights:
# Any shady place of your kitchen area can be immediately turned into a bright and warm space with properly attached led lighting strips underneath the cabinets. The greatest advantage of led lights over fluorescent lighting is that they could be measured and cut into exact specifications, offering uniformly bright light to the entire length of the strip. Besides, these lights are far cheaper and can reduce the electricity bill to a great extent.
# These lights can be aptly used for lighting-up book shelves and other display showcases. These lights are able to distribute the light evenly to every corner of the cabinet. You will just have to cut the strips into exact lengths and fit with a tape along the edge of the book shelves and cabinets to add a warm glow.
# Nooks and niches are mostly very difficult to light up. But the flexible led strips allow to light up the curved recess of any space. As the strips are small and slim, you may even conceal them so that the ugly strips, tubes and lights do not interrupt the smooth finish of your interior.
# Even lighting is of great benefit on desk and study tables. Easily installable led lights can therefore be used in these places to get the right amount of lighting for any attentive work.
So these led lighting strips are a great alternative to the conventional fluorescent lights and only a transformer is required to adjust the voltage of your lighting requirements.
Benefits of using these lights:
Once you start using these lights regardless of their application, you will be absolutely mesmerised with their lighting ability.
First, these lights are very durable and need no maintenance to keep up the work. You will just have to install them and it’s done – they can have a life of about 50,000 hours, which is much higher compared to any type of light available. Its closest competitor, the CFL light, which had the best technology so far, is able to withstand just a fraction of its life.
Secondly, the led lights consume up to 75 percent less energy than the CFL lamps. If every person in a country shifts to LED lights, then the economy of the whole country would take a turn for better.
