Great Advantages Of LED Chandelier Lights
As LED chandelier lights evolve and become better designed and prolific in both the residential and commercial markets across the globe, the advantages will eclipse all other lighting technologies that have come before. While still not yet in the majority, it’s important to understand the many advantages of their use when making the switch from incandescent, halogen, CFL (or fluorescent) lighting. Some of the major advantages of include:
Unlike incandescent light bulbs that waste over 80% of the electrical current heating up the metal filaments to a temperature high enough to generate light, LED chandelier lights generate virtually no heat and thus utilize a fraction of the energy required to produce an equivalent lumen of lighting. When it comes down to energy efficiency, no other lighting technology compares which makes them very easy to choose. Because LED chandelier lights are so efficient, you can literally save as much as 90% off your electrical lighting bills! In most households, over 25% of the total electrical bill is used for lighting. So if you’re spending R500 a month of electricity now and you upgrade most of your lighting to LEDs, you’ll be able to save about R100 per month.
Unlike pretty much all lighting alternatives, LED chandelier lights contain no mercury or any other hazardous materials or chemicals. Mercury (found in many CFLs for example) is a dangerous substance – one you don’t want released into your home for your children to inhale in the event you break one. Furthermore, because they are 100% green and friendly to the environment, they pose no problem when they have run their course and need to be disposed of (or better yet recycled). Last but not least, LEDs emit zero UV (Ultra Violet) radiation unlike incandescent, halogen or CFLs.
