Inovic LED Lighting Solutions FAQ




What are LEDs?

LEDs are light emitting diodes. These are electronic components that convert electrical energy directly to light through the movement of electrons within the material of the diode. LEDs are important because due to their efficiency and low energy, they are beginning to replace most conventional light sources.

WHAT ARE LED LIGHTS AND DO THEY SAVE ENERGY?

INOVIC LED Lighting produces brighter light while consuming less power. LEDs not only save energy but are also long lasting, low maintenance, easy to install, UV rays free, and eco-friendly.

HOW DOES AN LED BULB WORK?

Light-emitting diodes (LED) are semiconductors. As electrons pass through this type of semiconductor, it turns into light. Compared to incandescent and CFL bulbs, LED lights are more efficient at turning energy into light. Therefore, less of the energy radiates from the bulb as heat.

WHY ARE LEDS USED INSTEAD OF BULBS?

LEDs emit almost no forward heat while traditional bulbs like incandescent convert more than 90% of the total energy used to power them directly into heat. That means only 10% of the energy powering incandescent lights is actually used for light (which also makes them extremely inefficient compared to LEDs).

ARE LED LIGHTS MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?

LED light bulbs are becoming increasingly popular with designers and consumers of green technology, as they use less electricity, last longer, and emit more light on a pound-for-pound basis than traditional incandescent bulbs. LEDs are currently not classified as toxic, and are disposed of in conventional landfills.

HOW EFFICIENT ARE LED’S COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL LIGHT BULBS?

According to Energy Star, LEDs are up to 90% more efficient than incandescent bulbs. LED lights last longer than traditional incandescent and fluorescent bulbs.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF REPLACING YOUR ORDINARY BULBS WITH THE LED?

There are many benefits. Here is a list of a few:

  • An immediate reduction in your electricity bill. They offer great design flexibility
  • Less heat. LED fixtures are extremely efficient converting electricity into light.
  • LED Bulbs last a very long time. They can work in extreme temperatures
  • They are virtually indestructible.
  • They do not contain mercury or other hazardous materials
  • Highly recyclable - with no hazardous parts, you can easily reclaim most of the parts in an environmentally safe way.
WHY ARE LED LIGHTS BETTER?

Energy Efficient. LED lights are up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light and only 5% is wasted as heat. ... Less energy use reduces the demand from power plants and decreases greenhouse gas emissions.

WHAT COLORS ARE AVAILABLE WITH LEDS?

Led tape lights and other decorative Led options are available in most colors. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, pink, and purple are all options. Most regular light LEDs are classified as a different type of white. The main colors are “warm white” and “bright white”.

DO LEDS HAVE ULTRAVIOLET (UV) LIGHT?

Yes, LEDs contain UV light. However, they emit less UV light than fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. This means less damage on furniture, paint, and fabrics.

DO LEDS EMIT HEAT?

LED lights produce less heat than traditional light bulbs. However, any energy source can become warm over time.

WHY ARE LED LIGHT BULBS MORE EXPENSIVE?

LED light bulbs are still a relatively new technology, and in the past they have been much more expensive than traditional bulbs. However, in the last 6 years, the price of LED light bulbs has dropped by around 80%. While they cost more upfront, LED bulbs will actually save households money, thanks to their energy efficiency.

HOW LONG DO LED LIGHTS LAST?

The lifespan of LED bulbs is many times that of incandescent bulbs. Typically, LED light bulbs have an average rated light of anywhere from 15,000-20,000 hours, compared to just 1,000 for traditional bulbs. More durable lights could have a lifespan of 30,000 hours or more.

HOW DO LED BULBS USE LESS POWER?

Traditional incandescent light bulbs generate light by heating a small filament until it glows brightly. Unfortunately, this means that up to 90% of the bulb’s energy is lost through heat. LED bulbs are instead illuminated by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material, a process that generates very little heat. Much less energy is wasted this way, so the bulb can achieve the same brightness as an incandescent bulb while consuming much less power.

WHAT ARE ‘SMART’ LIGHTS?

Smart lighting systems connect to your home Wi-Fi network, allowing you to control your lights through your Smartphone or tablet. You can change the colour or colour temperature of your lights in an instant, or set schedules so the lights activate according to the timings you set. Some smart lighting systems are compatible with smart home systems like Amazon Echo, giving you the ability to control your lights with your voice.

DO THEY CONTAIN ANY HAZARDOUS OR HEAVY METALS LIKE MERCURY?

No, LED bulbs do not contain mercury or any other hazardous metals or chemicals. CFL's and fluorescent do contain a very small amount of mercury that needs to be disposed of correctly. So when your LED bulb eventually stops to work, you don't have to worry about costly or special disposal procedures.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LED AND CFL?

The LED bulb stands for Light Emitting Diode, and CFL stands for Compact Fluorescent Light. LED bulbs are more energy efficient than CFLs. ... The LED bulb is expensive than a CFL bulb. The primary difference between them is LED bulbs are durable and long lasting as compared to the CFLs

ARE LED LIGHT BULBS WORTH THE MONEY?

LED lights bulbs are totally worth the money—even though you may feel you are spending way too much on their installation and that you would be much better off if you had gone for CFL lights instead.

WHY IS LED LIGHTING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LIGHTING?

LED lights are the next generation of lighting that save energy, reduce maintenance and replacement costs and help protect the environment. They also last much longer than traditional lighting.

WHAT TYPE OF LIGHT QUALITY CAN I EXPECT WITH LED LIGHTS?

LED lights can match your existing lighting in terms of brightness and color. But, as with any product, there can be poor quality and high quality LED lights. You may have had experience with poor quality products already that do not match your existing lighting. Encore LED will help you select the correct fixture to replace your existing lighting in terms of brightness and color temperature.
