Fortunately, today's consumer is much more educated and more aware of the importance of caring for the environment. Ecological consumption is no longer a practice for a few, it is an almost obligatory task to improve the environment in which we live and provide a better and healthy life.
As more people become aware of the need to conserve the environment, one of the strategies that have emerged is the optimization of energy use and with it the inclusion of, not the future but the present, LED lighting.
LED lighting is rapidly growing in popularity and has become a sought-after replacement for fluorescent and incandescent lighting. Its advantages in performance and low consumption together with its great versatility are well known.
Also very interesting is the wide range of products that exists of this type of light, from spotlights and bulbs to LED luminaires for professionals, which allows addressing all types of lighting solutions.
But to everything we have to add the most important thing, the benefits it brings to the so-called ecological consumption. Let's see what are these benefits to the environment that the use of LED lighting brings:
- Energy efficiency. LEDs can generate more light than incandescent bulbs, but with less consumption. This makes them more energy efficient. LED lighting only uses 60% to 80% less energy compared to other types of lighting.
- More durable. Unlike other bulbs, LEDs last longer and therefore do not need to be replaced regularly. Quality LED bulbs have been found to last 20 times longer than other types, helping to reduce the impact associated with making new products and disposing of old bulbs. In addition, LED lights are resistant to shocks, vibrations and external impacts, they are excellent lighting systems for exteriors in difficult conditions and exposure to weather, wind, rain, etc ...
- Low carbon emission. Lighting is one of the biggest culprits in carbon emission. This impact can be drastically reduced with LED lighting, as they release a negligible amount of carbon. It does not emit any toxic waste, they do not have, for example, mercury.
- Does not emit ultraviolet radiation. LEDs do not emit ultraviolet radiation unlike older models of light bulbs. This makes them a healthier and cleaner light source. By not producing infrared light they can be used for any function and living space.
- Low temperature levels. LEDs do not get hot during lighting, being almost the same temperature all the time. Other types of lighting get progressively hotter, making them more dangerous.
There is no doubt that one of the tasks that every consumer must carry out without further wasting time is the switch to LED lighting. First because it will have an impact on higher performance and lower energy costs and second because it will be helping to improve and preserve the environment.
