Of all types: classic, vintage, modern, retro, luminaires with LED technology know how to adapt to all styles and all environments. This is the recommended lighting source for today. More and more homes or businesses are getting the LED for their layout or renovation because of its many advantages. It has become established in recent years and gradually replaces its congeners in halogen or compact fluorescent.
Here are the reasons that must push you to switch to LED:
The lifespan of LED bulbs are not comparable to conventional bulbs. Indeed, the lifespan of a halogen bulb is 2,000 hours, while the LED lasts 10 times more, which is several years of use. You save money on maintenance costs and, in the case of defective products, you have a 2-year guarantee on the whole catalog to have the products replaced (under certain conditions).
Upon switching on, you will reach a maximum brightness level. No waiting, LED bulbs are brighter and clear compared to conventional halogen and fluorescent. Your lighting fixtures will not flicker anymore.
An LED bulb delivers a light output up to 10X more powerful than a halogen bulb. With LED, consume less for brighter lighting. In the long run, you will see your electricity bill decrease by up to 80%.
The LEDs operate in Very Low Voltage and low temperatures, about 35 ° C (VS 150 ° C for incandescent and 70 ° C for compact fluorescents). This is an important and advantageous point for electrical safety.
Beyond the benefits on costs and energy consumption, LED lamps are also recyclable. Indeed, they contain neither polluting gas nor mercury. Collection bins are often made available in stores and at the dump. To learn more about how to recycle used LEDs, we recommend reading our article dedicated to this.
LED is less dazzling than conventional bulbs and is more comfortable for the eyes. Silumen offers all types of lighting that faithfully reproduce the colors of objects or exposed areas. Our fixtures have a color rendering index (CRI) of at least 80.
In addition, the LED offers different shades of lighting color depending on your space, its use and the desired atmosphere. To find out more: discover the article dedicated to lighting color temperatures.
