An LED (diode) is a digital light source. LEDs came to life as light indicators in electrical components manufactured by Hewlett Packard. Today they are used worldwide in televisions, traffic lights, car lights, flashlights and signs. You can now find the best quality LED lighting from Ligman Lighting.

Why use an LED light?
LEDs use less energy. The first and foremost reason for using LEDs is that they can use up to 85% less energy than traditional lighting. Less energy consumption is good for the environment, but also good for business. Less energy consumption means more money savings.
LEDs last longer. The average life for an LED lamp is 10 years. Even so, they only need to be replaced when the light fades. Their light output gradually decreases over a long period of time. They can also take longer, depending on the application.
LEDs are much safer – LEDs use a lower voltage (12-24) volts and are less dangerous from fire than incandescent lamps, and especially fluorescent lamps. LEDs emit no ultraviolet light and very little heat, so they can be used in areas where too much heat is dangerous.
LEDs are easier to maintain. LEDs can be left alone and quickly removed over time.
The LED is solid. No thread or broken glass and strong even when wet. They can even be used underwater.
LEDs are easier to dispose of. While there is currently no real way to recycle them, they are small in size making them easier and less polluting than throwing away glass bulbs and gas-filled canisters.
