Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) use the movement of electrons through a semiconductor to produce visible light.
Why should we use LEDs?
LEDs have many advantages over incandescent bulbs including color quality, energy efficiency, durability and length of life.
Compared to other lighting options, LEDs:
- Reveal colors more brightly
- Cost 80% less to operate
- Stay cool to the touch, reducing risk of burns
- Last 50 times longer
