LED Office lighting
To help develop this article click 'Edit this article' above.
LED lights are packaged arrays of light emitting diodes. A light emitting diode is a semiconductor device that produces light through a process of electroluminescence. LED lighting products deliver high electrical efficacy, high reliability, and long lifespan. This results in energy savings and lower maintenance costs.
Using LED lighting in offices is an effective way to cut electricity bills. Some of the other benefits of using LED lights for office lighting are that these bulbs enjoy a longer life which is almost ten times more than the normal bulbs. They are more durable and at the same time do not heat up the room, which is a common feature associated with normal bulbs.
The installation charges for these bulbs are relatively low compared to the savings made. A number of commercial organization and offices have now replaced their old lights with these LED lights and have already seen the difference. The U.S. Department of Energy also recommends the LED lighting for offices.
