Understanding & utilizing LED to save money and the environment

LED is becoming the new standard for lighting and fixtures in commercial and residential applications. LED technology allows for design styles and looks that were once impossible to create. Let’s dig into why LED is important and how it can help the environment and your pocketbook.

What is LED?.

LED or Light Emitting Diodes are semiconductor devices that turn electricity into light at the most efficient level. Because there are no filaments or fluorescent tubes, they are able to last far longer with a much higher light output.

Why is LED important?.

LED keeps toxic “old-school” light bulbs out of the landfill and is excellent for the environment. LED’s efficiency and environmental friendliness is crucial in our quest to reduce our carbon footprint worldwide.
