How did we get to LED Lighting?
Lets look at the history of lighting. The world would be a dark place without electric light bulbs. Can you imagine trying to read by candlelight? Until 1879 when Edison’s version of the incandescent light became an everyday convenience, fire was still the best way to light up a dark room. For the next 80 or so years scientists continued to make small advancements in reducing cost and increasing efficiency of the incandescent bulb but but it didn’t change much. By the 1950s researchers still had only figured out how to convert about 10% of the energy the incandescent bulb used into light and began to focus their energy on other lighting solutions.
The greatest change in lighting didn’t happen until 1962 when Nick Holonyak, Jr., created the first practical visible light-emitting diode (LED). His invention was called “the magic one” at General Electric. Holonyak wasn’t trying to create a light that would replace incandescent bulbs. He was trying to make a laser.
About LED Lights
Light emitting diodes (LED) are the light engines that deliver illumination, however, there are many components that make up a good reliable lighting source and diodes are just one. It’s easy to see the initial benefits of LED lighting over it’s inefficient legacy counterparts. LED lighting is the most energy efficient lighting system on the market today but unfortunately not all LED products are built to last or even deliver noticeable energy savings making investing in a new LED lighting upgrade a risky prospect.
The good news is that here at vootu, we design and engineer all of our LED products to the highest standard of performance, reliability and efficiency. We have built an enviable reputation of reliable LED lighting solutions, always meeting but often exceeding our clients expectations. Here are a few benefits of a vootu LED lighting upgrade:
- 50-85% reduction in Energy Consumption
- > 10 years maintenance free operation
- Improved quality of light & reduced eye fatigue
- Lower cooling costs due to LED efficiencies in converting energy to visible light (90% efficiency)
