LED lights have become incredibly popular over the years. Many people are transitioning to LED lights to keep their buildings lit. They hold several advantages over other lights that you could use, and they don’t have any sign of going anywhere any time soon. Here are some of the advantages that LED lights have when compared to other lights.
LED Lights Have Good CRI (Color Rendering Index)
CRI is what measures how well a light is able to show the true color of objects that they illuminate when compared to natural light or another ideal source of light. Usually, it’s best to have a higher CRI, though there are some specific scenarios when this might not be the case. Something great about LED lighting is that it tends to have a highly-rated CRI, higher than other light sources such as sodium vapor lamps.
LED Lights Create Directional Emissions
LED technology will only emit light 180 degrees. All other kinds of light will emit that light the entire 360 degrees. When you have 360-degree emissions, there has to be a means of either reflecting or redirecting the light, often with the use of another accessory. This can cost quite a bit of money, meaning it’s not as cost-effective as having 180-degree emissions. LED lights won’t create this financial burden for you.
LEDs Come With Many Design Options
LED lights are very small, which puts you at a huge advantage from a design perspective. You could put them into groups to give you a more traditional light bulb, or you could use each light independently if you want a smaller light. You could even elect to string a bunch of them together. The design possibilities with LED lights are nearly endless.
LED Lights Function Using Low Voltage
In a majority of cases, LED lighting won’t use much voltage while operating. This means LEDs are perfect for outdoor environments, unlike other types of lights that could potentially violate code.
LEDs Can Work in Both Hot and Cold Temperatures
Something else great about LED lighting is how flexible it is at varying temperatures. LEDs perform fine both in warmer and colder areas without facing big problems with degrading.
