Having LED lighting in your homes is no longer so difficult. The costs have become accessible to all and the benefits are many. But LED lamps are not only used in our homes: public lighting, entertainment lighting, digital equipment… A wide range of sectors take advantage of the innovation that has brought this technology forward.
After the ban on the trade of incandescent lamps with the European Community Regulation in 2009, the choice of consumers shifted between halogen, low consumption or LED lamps.
At that time LED lights were still very expensive, so the choice fell on the other two types. Today, however, this is no longer the case. The advantages of using LED lights
The LED lamp has the advantage that it can be used in many situations in which the old lamps were not adequate.
In fact, the revolution lies in its manufacture: the LED (acronym for Light Emitting Diode) and a diode, which is an electronic component that emits light. Thanks to this, the LED lamp has enormous advantages that no lamp could previously possess. Construction versatility. Being small in size, the diode can potentially be inserted anywhere and this has led to the construction of lamps and chandeliers of all kinds, with sometimes very attractive designs. Resistence.Working with a rigid component, the LED lamp is very durable and its lifespan is longer than other lamps. No overheating. The diode works at low voltages and therefore it is practically impossible for it to overheat. Thanks to this, LED lamps can be handled without problems even after they have been switched on for a long time. Low consumption.The LED emits a bright light with very low power consumption. In fact, with the same lighting and luminous flux, a 10 W LED lamp can replace a fluorescent lamp that consumes 30W, ie the energy saving compared to low consumption lamps is about 65%. This feature makes the LED light perfect to be used in those places where it is necessary to keep the lighting working continuously for a long time. Absence of UV or IR. The light from the diode does not emit infrared or ultraviolet radiation, which is harmful to the skin. Variety of colors. The LED emits a variety of different colors, which can increase if more diodes are joined together. Color temperature.When we buy an LED lamp, there is another factor that we must take into consideration that we did not do before: the color temperature. The color temperature is the scale that quantitatively defines which lights are cold and which are warm. This is measured in Kelvin, like heat.
So if before you had to change the type of lamp according to the desired color temperature, now you can keep the same type of lamp, but choosing the desired color temperature.
When choosing the color temperature, you must also keep in mind the activity that takes place in the illuminated environment: cold lights are suitable for places where you have to work, such as offices or gyms, while cold lights are suitable for places where you rest, like the bedroom.Application of LED lamps It is
clear that LED lamps are more efficient and versatile than other types of lamps. This type of technology has not only saved the wallets of many families, but has also changed the life of lighting designers and interior designers .
You can light up any kind of space, from the museum, to the exteriors of buildings, to the stages for concerts and public street lighting.
An example can be the lighting project of the Conservatory of Music in Geneva , Switzerland, visible on the petruccimarco.it website or the lighting project of the Melia Hotel in Pedrovac , Montenegro, visible on the linealight.com website.
The color and brightness of the LED allow combinations that can be used to create atmospheres that previously required different types of lamps that worked together, with a consequent consumption problem.
In short, the application potential is infinite and the results are decidedly exceptional, all while spending and consuming less than before.
