The Rise of Creative LED Lighting Applications for Surface Illumination

The rise in the use of creative LED lighting applications can be attributed to a need for an energy efficient, high quality, durable, long-lasting and environmentally friendly option for surface illumination. LED lights are now available in any color and in a range of sizes and styles. Creative LED lighting is used to enhance kitchens, backlight TVs, showcase shelving, in wine cellars, on railings, decks, fences, steps and many more interior or exterior areas.  

While early LEDs were most commonly used in indicator lamps and in seven-segment displays, the development of high-efficiency LEDs that produce high-output white light has made it possible to use LEDs for surface illumination. This introduction of high-output white light LEDs has been a game changer for surface illumination purposes and LEDs are now regularly used indoors and for outdoor area lighting. This change has led to many businesses, homeowners, restaurants, museums, sports arenas, theme parks and retail stores making the switch from incandescent bulbs to LEDs.

LEDs have many advantages over incandescent light sources including improved energy efficiency, an increased lifespan, rugged durability, better quality of light, reduction in heat and less waste.

Efficiency: When compared to traditional light bulbs, LEDs can reduce your energy consumption by 60-90%.

Lifespan: LEDs provide a significantly longer lifespan and increased durability.

Durability: LEDs forgo the glass seen on traditional lightbulbs and are instead encased in a hard plastic or resin. Their design makes them extremely rugged and much harder to break. They can also hold up in extreme temperatures.

Quality of Light: LEDs emit more lumens than traditional light bulbs, they warm up quickly, are easily dimmed, can focus/direct light and offer approximately a 15-20% higher quality of light.

Cool Light: LEDs produce much less heat than traditional light bulbs. The reduction of heat prevents damage to nearby sensitive objects and extends the life of the bulb.

Waste: LED lights significantly reduce waste and can be recycled. LED lights do not contain toxic mercury and their manufacture does not require toxic substances. 

The LED revolution is here and now is the time to take advantage of creative LED lighting applications for your home or business and experience the many advantages that these products have over traditional lighting options.
