What is an LED Bulb?

An LED bulb contains a Light Emitting Diode, which is technically an electric circuit rather than an actual bulb. Another way in which it varies from the traditional product is that it does not contain filaments like those found in incandescent bulbs.

Despite their wide spread use in household objects such as mobile phones, digital clocks, and traffic lights, LED bulbs have only recently become a popular alternative for household and commercial lighting. LED light bulbs and lighting solutions are now becoming increasingly common place as they replace the more traditional and somewhat inefficient incandescent bulbs.

One of the main benefits of LED lights is that they use up to 90% less energy than standard bulbs. In fact, according to the Energy Saving Trust, if every household in the UK replaced their traditional light bulbs with LED versions, enough energy would be saved to light 5 million homes. LED bulbs also have a much longer lifespan than their traditional counterparts, often lasting between 25-30 years. This means that, whilst the initial investment into an LED bulb is likely to be more than an incandescent bulb, in the long term this is a worthwhile and cost effective investment.

As concern over environmental protection and global warming increases, innovative new alternative energy products such as PV solar panels are constantly being introduced to the market.

On top of the environmental reasons for this, there are also many other reasons driving the design and manufacture of eco-friendly products to take the place of traditional energy resources.

The scientific research states that the current rate of consumption of non-renewable resources will soon see them all exhausted in the not too distant future.

So the times demand action from us, and alternatives that might preserve the non-renewable resources we have left, and satisfy our ever growing need for power.
