A growing clamor for “green” products, due to the alarming developments in the earth’s environmental health, have increased the demand for energy efficient technologies, among other environmentally friendly things. One such technological development has the opportunity to be of fortuitous benefit where there is a great need for alternative processes.
The Light Emitting Diode, more commonly called LED is slowly replacing the ubiquitous fluorescent and incandescent lights. Its advantage comes in its ability to directly convert electrical energy to luminous energy. By giving more light per watt, this makes them more efficient than fluorescent and incandescent bulbs alike. LED lamps can also emit specific colors without the need of color filters, so they are more efficient for lamps with dedicated color emissions. They come in very small sizes and produce little heat making them very unobtrusive sources of illumination. They are also shock resistant and a have a longer lifespan which can last for up to 50,000 hours.
One of its most recent developments is the GU10 LED light bulbs. In 2008, it was introduced into the market and was received as another thrilling advancement in the world of lighting. The GU10 is an extremely efficient energy saver and light provider with an output comparable to a standard 25 watt incandescent bulb. The key advantage of this lamp, though, is that it consumes only an eighth of the power needed to light its incandescent counterpart. The GU10 LED bulb requires only 3 watts to give an output of 70 lumens- now that’s energy efficient lighting! The bulb also has a 40 degree lens that gives out a pleasant beam of illumination.
GU10 LED lights come in various models for different functions; from ambient, decorative, to utility lighting. What’s good about it is that whichever model you choose from its wide selection of applications, you’re sure to gain the benefits associated with the use of LED technology.
