WHAT ARE THE SAVINGS ACHIEVED WITH LED LIGHTING

An LED lighting upgrade is an effective energy-saving measure, but the actual percentage savings achieved depend on the difference in power consumption between LED fixtures and the existing lighting system. Therefore, the financial performance of LED lighting upgrades is increased in cases where the lamps and fixtures in operation are old and inefficient.  Upgrading Light […]

ADVANTAGES OF LED LIGHTING IN AIR CONDITIONED SPACES

An LED lighting upgrade provides most of its savings as reduced energy consumption, and the long service life of the technology translates into maintenance savings, since plenty of lamp replacements are avoided. However, LED fixtures also have a lower heat emission than less efficient types of lighting, and in air conditioned spaces this […]

MAINTENANCE SAVINGS OF LED LIGHTING

How LED Lighting Simplifies Maintenance  LED lighting offers a broad range of benefits beyond energy savings. This lighting technology can achieve synergy with building automation systems, while improving safety in both homes and businesses. In addition, LED lighting has the lowest maintenance expenses among all types of lighting.  Although the upfront cost of LED lamps and […]

LED LIGHTS DESIGNED TO HELP YOU SLEEP

By now we all know that light wakes us up, but did you know light can also help you sleep? A new generation of light bulbs and lamps are mimicking natural light cycles to get your body into sleep mode without disrupting your evening activities.  Over hundreds of thousands of years the human […]

SOLAR-POWERED LED LIGHTING FOR US ROADWAYS

The US roadway system is sprawling, covering over 150,000 miles all the way from Maine’s rocky coastline to the great redwoods of California. If you’ve traveled by highway outside of major cities, you’ve probably noticed that some of them are lit at night closest to the cities they travel through. The US roadway […]

THE STREET LIGHTS ARE TALKING

Many cities around the world are experimenting with intelligent lighting systems right now. The next generation of street lighting will be connected, and down your street, by the not-so-distant future. We are no strangers to the applications of smart lights; smart parking has shown us how networked LED-based lighting attached to sensors can be used […]

ASK A LED: THE STRESS FREE WAY TO PARK

Modern-day Parking: a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of convenience…that does not exist. Those familiar with David Hasselhoff’s Knight Rider might lament when searching for a park; wishing Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT) could deliver them to an easy and accessible parking space while fighting injustice. Hours spent aimlessly driving around block to block looking for a park while our lives […]

CRI, LEDS AND THE COLOUR OF PSYCHOLOGY

LED’s ability to produce natural light sources influences the behaviour and perceptions of humans.  As mentioned previously in another article LED lights contain a high Colour Rendering Index (CRI), which means objects within LED lit areas appear more natural in colour. But what wasn’t mentioned deserves its own space. After all, what is […]
