LED light is green!

Time for Green Lights! It is time we go look beyond just jokes about how many people it takes to change a light bulb. Lighting consumes up to 20% of our home energy and up to 30% our work electricity.LED lighting is often overlooked in ‘green building’ literature while more expensive and less satisfactory environmental solutions are pursued. The purpose of this article is to argue that LED lighting should be considered an essential element of any ‘green’ building, house, or construction project. Let’s start with some of the benefits of LEDs:

LED lighting uses 80% less energy than incandescent lighting.
LED lighting produces 500% more light per Watt.
LED lights have lenses that focus the light into a pattern of equal distribution adding to energy savings as light is not wasted bouncing in unneeded directions.
LED lights do not produce as much heat. This can save on energy and maintenance costs.
LED lights do not emit significant UV or IR radiation. IR is back to the heat issue, and UV is something we generally try to avoid.
LED lights last 50,000 hours or about 25 times longer than incandescent lights. This saves obviously on maintenance and disposal.
LED lights do not contain mercury common in fluorescents.

The Department of Energy estimates that LED lighting could reduce U.S. energy consumption by 29% by 2025。Recent university research and other advancements have help LEDs to replace incandescent light bulbs in the next five to seven years.

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are not a new technology (1970s). LEDs offer benefits such as small size, long lamp life, low heat output, energy savings and durability. They also allow extraordinary design flexibility in color changing, dimming and distribution by combining these small units into desired shapes, colors, sizes and lumen packages. LEDs have advanced from use as indicator lights and in numeric displays to a range of innovative and new applications, including accent lights, task lights, traffic lights, signage, outdoor lighting and down-lighting.

If there was an apparent drawback, at least from the consumer perspective, it would be the expense. An led par38 12 watt light can cost 10 times as much an incandescent light. In fact, however, the expense of LEDs is not a drawback at all. Once, energy and replacement costs are figured in the LED lights actually save money. Simply consider the cost of 24 extra replacements of the incandescent light. Then factor the extra energy use and its really not even close. We did not include that in the summer LEDs put less load on the air conditioning. Its clear the LED light ultimately saves money, but many are reluctant to purchase due to the longer term of the payback. Over the last few years there has been advancements increasing the light output per chip. Once you get more light out of the chip, then the cost goes down in terms of how much light it produces.

Finally, the real benefit of LEDs is that they are cool. Yes, they are not as hot as incandescent lights, but I mean they are cool. When you see the lights and what they do it is impressive. Everything from PAR lights to recessed ceiling lights are available all at costs that payback before too long.
