Do you plan to undertake that long-postponed high pressure sodium to LED conversion for the lighting in your home or office? LED is the newest and by far the best lighting technology available, using less wattage to produce high levels of brightness. HPS vs. LED Indeed, high pressure sodium (HPS) lights are generally unmatched in
No matter which type of light bulbs you’re using, it seems like some form of flickering is inevitable. Incandescent lights dim with every voltage fluctuation and fluorescent lights visibly flicker all the time. Not even modern LED lights are flicker-free. And to understand why LED light flickers, you first have to understand the difference between
LED lights are slowly but surely forcing traditional incandescent bulbs into a well-deserved retirement. The reason is simple — LED is a cost-effective, efficient technology that outperforms its counterparts in every important aspect. But perhaps the most interesting question for consumers is that of durability; how long LED lights last and whether their lifespan is
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are praised for their efficiency, long lifetimes, and overall reliability. But are there any downsides to using them? Read on to explore all the advantages and disadvantages of LED lights! How LEDs Work To help explain the advantages and disadvantages of LED lights, let’s first take a look at how they work.
Most outdoor lighting systems use some kind of photocontrol device to measure the amount of ambient light and turn the lights on and off accordingly. When it gets dark and the ambient light level drops below the specified threshold, the photocell sends a signal to turn the lights on. Then, when the sun comes back
Those who go shopping for new light bulbs for the first time often wonder why there is such a wattage difference between different bulbs. An old-fashioned light bulb might have 60 or 100W, but a LED bulb right next to it might have only 10W. Why is that? Well, as the LEDs are far more
