What to keep in mind when choosing the perfect light for your project

LED Performance

LEDs are just tiny light bulbs that fit easily into an electrical circuit. But unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, they don’t have a filament that will burn out, and they don’t get especially hot. They are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material, and they last just as long as a standard transistor.

LEDs are “directional” light sources, which means they emit light in a specific direction, unlike incandescent and CFL, which emit light and heat in all directions. That means LEDs can use light and energy more efficiently in a multitude of applications.

Lighting Quality

LED lighting is the best option to choose when you want to enhance your home or any current lighting project. The LED light was created to bring all colors to life with clarity and advanced technology known as CRI.

Lighting and Perception

Many factors affect the light quality of LED. Colour temperature, brightness, colour rendition and colour quality affect both how the light works and how it is perceived. These are what you have to keep in mind when choosing the perfect light, as each lighting project is unique.

Lighting Costs

The large variance between an LED bulb and halogen bulb wattage is the reason why LED’s are so much cheaper to run. This means that the LED spot uses 90% less electricity to run therefore costs 90% less.
