L.E.D (Light Emitting Diode) is a semiconductor solid body of high strength to receive an electrical current of low intensity, emits light efficiently and in high yield.
A little history, in 1879 Thomas Alva Edison invents and patents the incandescent bulb. Thanks to its discovery, for over a century we have enjoyed lighting. That is finished, since in September 2012 the incandescent technology ceased to be manufactured in the EC.
The motives? Mainly 2, the first is its ineffectiveness! Did you know that this type of light bulbs only takes 10% of the energy to light? 90% is transformed into heat, it is as if from a bottle of water we drank a drink and the rest of the content we throw it.
The second, its reduced useful life of only 1,000 h. Makes it inefficient (Duration of just 6 months with an average power of 5.4 hours per day). The latest technologies have proven to be much more efficient and less polluting, among which without doubt the most efficient LED technology.
The useful life of an LED lamp is up to 30 times that of an incandescent lamp, 25 times that of a halogen, 30 times more than that of a fluorescent tube and 3 times that of a low energy lamp. Most indoor LED lamps have a half-life of 30,000 / 50,000 hours. Therefore, you have purchased up to 25 conventional halogen lamps before replacing an equivalent LED.
But how much is saved with the LEDs, through 3 ways you see the savings. It saves up to 80%. In the acquisition of lamps because there is much less substitution and because there are fewer lamps to replace the cost of maintenance is also less.
