   Why LED Lighting?  

LED Benefits
  • Instant On
  • Mercury Free
  • Lead Free
  • No UV
   

   LED Brights Replacements:  

  • Reduce light energy bills by as much as 80% compared to incandescent lights.

  • Experience higher reliability and up to 30 times longer life times.    Typical lifetimes are at least 35,000 hours compared to 1,000 to 4,000 for incandescents.

  • Save on air conditioning due to much lower operating temperatures.   Touch these lights and they feel only lukewarm.   Large heat sinks on LED lighting are to maintain cooling of the LED light engine.

  • Enjoy nice, uniform quality of light

  • LED Brights are designed to produce up to 50% more light than downlights with incandescent or compact flourescent bulbs installed with the same light (lumen) output.

  • Render colors equal to incandescent lamps.  

  • LEDs do not emit ultraviolet or infrared wavelengths that cause fading of decor, artwork and perishable
    merchandise.

  • Instant on with no flicker or start delay

  • There is no question that all future lighting will be LED.

California Title 24 Requirements (TABLE 150-C) HIGH EFFICIENCY LUMINAIRE REQUIREMENTS

LAMP POWER RATING FOR NON-LED MINIMUM LAMP EFFICACY FOR LIGHTING (see Note 1), OR SYSTEM NON-LED LIGHTING, OR POWER RATING FOR LED LIGHTING MINIMUM SYSTEM EFFICACY

5 watts or less:                     30 lumens per watt
over 5 watts to 15 watts:      40 lumens per watt
over 15 watts to 40 watts:    50 lumens per watt
over 40 watts:                      60 lumens per watt

   
     

   Compact Fluorescent Lights:

  • Typically, 50% less efficient compared to equal light output (lumens) of LED lighting 

  •  Low initial cost, but, experience high failure rates of both the lamps and internal electronic ballasts.

  • Delayed start may be as much as several seconds depending on conditions.

  • Require frequent replacement compared to LED lighting.   Often, more frequent than incandescent lighting.

  • Typically have poor distribution of light and vary much from product to product.

  • Color rendering of compact fluorescents is typically the poorest of all lighting.  It is the least liked by the public.

  • Are a concern to the environment due to mercury disposal contamination.

Compact Fluorescent
    

    Incandescent Lights:

  • Incandescent lights use a lot of energy. They are only about 10% efficient with the rest of the energy released as heat.   

  •  Are being banned in the U.S., Europe and other countries due to their high energy consumption.

  • Are very low cost, but, require frequent replacement having a very short lifetime. 

  • Increase heat loads for air conditioning.  

  US Revised standards for appliances and lighting 2007.
  • Requires roughly 25 percent greater efficiency for light bulbs, phased in from 2012 through 2014. This effectively bans the sale of most current incandescent light bulbs.
  • Various specialty bulbs, including appliance bulbs, "rough service" bulbs, colored lights, plant lights, and 3-way bulbs, are exempt from these requirements as well as light bulbs currently less than 40 watts or more than 150 watts.
