Lighting Facts – Understanding the label and choosing the right bulb
Finding the right light bulb for your home can seem difficult. You may notice that each bulb comes with a lighting facts label with different information about each bulb. This information is extremely valuable but not everyone fully understands it.
The Lighting Facts label is designed directly after the Nutrition Facts label and mandated by the Federal Trade Commission. With the information provided, we will help you to understand each part of the label so you can select the perfect light bulbs for your needs.
How Does Packaging Affect LED Lighting?
LED packages are simply the outer packaging, i.e. the assemblies that are home to LED chips. These are crucial LED components, allowing the actual light emitted to stay connected with the energy source, while safeguarded in a secure unit. Other purposes include shielding the LED chips and the wiring from any hazards in the surroundings, defending the chip using high quality phosphors and silicone resin, and ensuring continued flexibility and standardization of future lighting products.
There are a number of different LED packages used for modern industrial LED lights. And of course, each of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. If you are buying LEDs for your office, business premises, or factory settings, we can help you select the right LED bulb, along with the perfect packaging for your needs.
Using LEDs in Modern Lighting Designs
LED lighting fixtures are quickly gaining popularity, as people realize that they are a great choice for both residential and commercial settings. While there is no denying that LED lights are a tad bit more expensive than their traditional counterparts, it is also a fact that LEDs can cut electricity bills by up to 75%. Additionally, LEDs will need far less replacements due to better longevity and fewer maintenance needs. So that one-time expense doesn’t look so bad, does it?
Color Temperature Explained
Surprisingly, the color temperature of a light bulb has nothing to do with how hot the bulb gets! Color temperature is actually a method of describing the color characteristics of light. LED color temperatures have various ranges, including Warm, Cool, Natural and Daylight. Each color temperature has its own distinct look and feel. The color temperature is measured in Kelvins (K). The higher the Kelvins, the cooler the temperature, and the lower Kelvins, the warmer the temperature. The range for Kelvins for LED lights is from 2700K to 6500K.
How LED Lighting Can Save You A Ton Of Money
Depending on the size of the factory or warehouse, your energy costs related to lighting can vary. However, regardless of your operational capacity, all industries have one thing in common: lighting expenses.
Facility managers often struggle with saving money. Upgrading to a new lighting system might seem like a huge upfront expense; but it can lead to major savings and increase in positive ROI over time.
