LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs and lighting should be the obvious and only choice for modern businesses and households. With a lifespan more than 20 times that of a traditional incandescent bulb and using up to 90% less power, LEDs are more energy efficient and more cost effective in the long run. That makes them better for the planet and better for your pocket!
However, because the initial outlay for LEDs is more than for traditional bulbs, it’s important to purchase good quality products. That’s where we come in: Mega Supplies are experts when it comes to all things LED, and we can help you make the right choice now, so that you can save money for years to come.
It’s always worth speaking to our experts first if you’re new to LED lights, as we can recommend the right products to create the effect you require. Feel free to browse our shop, take a look at the services we offer or contact us for expert advice today
The Benefits of LED Technology
LEDs use less power per lumen (unit of light generated) than other bulbs, meaning that a 6 or 8 watt LED is the equivalent of a 60 watt incandescent bulb.
LEDs are RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant, do not contain mercury and emit ten times less carbon dioxide per year than traditional bulbs.
LEDs do not produce ultra violet (UV) radiation, making them safer for humans, and additionally, less likely to act as a beacon for insects.
LEDs last approximately 25,000 hours, as opposed to incandescent bulbs, which last around 1,200 hours. An LED bulb on for 24 hours a day would last nearly three years.
LEDs run off a tiny microchip encased in epoxy resin, making them far more durable and less likely to break than traditional bulbs.
LEDs typically run at around 12V as opposed to a typical 240V incandescent bulb. This adds to their energy efficiency and lessens their impact on the environment.
