LED Power Saving Lighting
LED Power Saving Lighting
The light-emitting diode (LED) is one of today’s most energy-efficient and rapidly-developing lighting technologies. Quality LED light bulbs last longer, are more durable, and offer comparable or better light quality than other types of lighting.

Why Get Led Lights?
1. Long Life
One of the most prominent features of LED Lighting is the long operational lifetime expectations. The LED bulbs and diodes have an outstanding operational lifetime, with the current average lifespan of a LED bulb lasting 15,000 hours. However, the average lifespan of LED modules if 25,000 to 30,000 hours! Having a greater lifespan than halogen lights means you change the bulbs less frequently, save money on the products themselves, as well as save time and avoid the inconvenience of replacing the bulbs.
2. Energy Efficiency
LED bulbs and modules serve as today’s most efficient way of illumination and lighting. It is estimated that LED lighting offers an energy efficiency of an 80%-90% increase when compared to traditional halogen lighting and conventional light bulbs. This means that about 80% of the electrical energy is converted to light, while only 20% is lost and converted into other forms of energy such as heat. LED lights also require less electricity to run, drawing only 10 Watts compared to the 60 Watts that Incandescent lights require. This means, over a 25,000 hour period, you could save roughly $150, per light!
3. Ecologically Friendly
LED Lighting is much more eco-friendly than halogen and incandescent lighting alternatives. LED lights are free of toxic chemicals! Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like e.g mercury that are dangerous for the environment and you!
4. Durable Quality
LED lights are extremely durable and built with sturdy components that are highly rugged and can withstand even the roughest conditions. As LED lights are resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts, they make for great outdoor lighting systems. For areas that have a high exposure to rough conditions such as wind, rain, vandalism, traffic related public exposure, construction or manufacturing sites, look into LED lighting alternatives. They will pass the test!
5. Zero UV Emissions
LED lighting produces little infrared light and close to no UV emissions. This is achieved as the LED bulb converts blue light into white light with the use of phosphors.
6. Design Flexibility
LEDs can be combined in any shape to produce highly efficient illumination. Individual LEDs can be dimmed, resulting in a dynamic control of light, color and distribution. Well-designed LED illumination systems can achieve fantastic lighting effects, not only for the eye but also for the mood and the mind:
LED mood illumination is already being used in airplanes, classrooms and many more locations and we can expect to see a lot more LED mood illumination in our daily lives within the next few years.
7. Operational in Extremely Cold or Hot Temperatures
LED are ideal for operation under cold and low outdoor temperature settings. For fluorescent lamps, low temperatures may affect operation and present a challenge. The LED illumination however operates well also in cold settings, such as for outdoor winter settings, freezer rooms etc.
8. Light Disbursement
LED lights are designed to focus their light and can be directed to a specific location without the use of an external reflector. This achieves a higher application efficiency than conventional lighting. Well-designed LED illumination systems are able to deliver light more efficiently to their desired location.
9. Instant Lighting & Frequent Switching
LED lights brighten up immediately when powered on, which has great advantages for infrastructure projects such as e.g traffic and signal lights.
Also, LED lights can switched off and on frequently and without affecting the LED’s lifetime or light emission. In contrast, traditional lighting may take several seconds to reach full brightness, and frequent on/off switching does drastically reduce operational life expectancy.
A low-voltage power supply is sufficient for LED illumination. This makes it easy to use LED lighting in outdoor settings by connecting an external solar-energy source. This is is a big advantage when it comes to using LED technology in remote or rural areas.
At Delta Electrical and Solar we can design for you a semi or complete retrofit of your home, office or business’s existing lighting to LED lighting. You’ll be surprised by how cost effective it is and blown away by how much you can save! Give us a call to discuss your LED Retro-fit and ask us about our LED savings.
