LED Lighting Takes Over The World

Putting out 40-watt light with 9-watt power is an excellent trick and GE has managed to pull it off. This new LED bulb is due to light the lives of customers in 2011. Although the $50 price tag is startling, the new General Electric Energy Smart Bulb starts to make far more sense when taking into account the cost of changing a standard, incandescent bulb over the span of 17 years.

However, Thomas Edison would chuckle at this new bulb lasting “only” 17 years since the bulbs he created are still lighting his historic home. Be that as it may, GE will still have many buyers excited about not having to mount a step stool for over a decade and a half.

Introduced in 1962, most people were awed by the dim red glow. Fast forward to today’s technology and not only are LEDs remarkably brighter, they also encompass the full color spectrum making their uses versatile in the extreme.

Using LED (light emitting diode) technology is more costly than today’s popular fluorescent units. But again, the cost is balanced out by the time span of use when comparing bulb for bulb. However, considering the prevalent use of LEDs in so many other walks of life, it is a wonder that standard home lighting is so slow in catching up.

For years LEDs have been used in watches, clocks, car dashboards, displays of endless variety, pathway lighting and reader boards in just about every travel terminal imaginable. Companies like Boeing are integrating LED technology into their products and machinery because the size is so much smaller and the energy output so much more efficient than any other competitor. In most industries, smaller, more efficient and, ultimately, cheaper is a winner all the way around. It is revolutionizing video displays of all sizes.

Being on par with fluorescent bulbs when it comes to economy of power usage, LEDs far out distance incandescent bulbs in the race to see who can be more efficient. A fact not lost on several countries around the world who are phasing out incandescent bulbs. Along with Canada, the United States will say goodbye to them in 2012, while most of Europe will see them banned a year earlier. Brazil and Venezuela were way ahead of the curve, starting their phase out of incandescents in 2005.

With companies like Lemnis Lighting developing technology to make dimmable LEDs, the possibilities and uses are expanding everyday. High output, low energy usage, minimal heat generation, long life, adjustable brightness and limitless color options have put LED lighting light years ahead of the pack. Pardon the pun.

Thanks to LED technology, Christmas trees are more vibrant, stadiums brighter without being blinding and limos are just a little cooler. From lightening the load and increasing the efficiency of a 787 to making clown fish look a little more spectacular at a coastal aquarium, LEDs have proven that they are here for the long haul. Far longer than 17 years. For information on Outdoor String Lights visit OUr site.
