Energy Efficient Lighting (LED)
C&T Electrical supply a large choice of led lights for a variety of needs including a complete installation service.
LED bulbs last up to 10 times longer than compact fluorescents, and far longer than typical incandescent (phased out from 2007).
Since LEDs do not have a filament, they are not damaged under circumstances when a regular incandescent bulb would be broken. Because they are solid, LED bulbs hold up well to jarring and bumping.
These bulbs do not cause heat build-up; LEDs produce 3.4 btu's/hour, compared to 85 for incandescent bulbs. Common incandescent bulbs get hot and contribute to heat build-up in a room. LEDs prevent this heat build-up, thereby helping to reduce air conditioning costs in the premises.
No mercury is used in the manufacturing of LEDs.
LED light bulbs use only 2-17 watts of electricity (1/3rd to 1/30th of Incandescent or CFL). LED bulbs used in fixtures inside the hpremises save electricity, remain cool and save money on replacement costs since LED bulbs last so long. Small LED flashlight bulbs will extend battery life 10 to 15 times longer than with incandescent bulbs.
Although LEDs are initially expensive, the cost is recouped over time and in battery savings. LED bulb use was first adopted commercially, where maintenance and replacement costs are expensive. But the costs of new LED bulbs have gone down considerably in the last few years and are continuing to go down. Today, LED light bulbs are the favourite for use in the commercial, industrial and hospitality sector and the cost is becoming less of an issue, as being GREEN is the way forward.
