Is it time to install new lighting? Or to install Led lighting where there is none yet? This is a job for an electrician. Working with electricity can be very dangerous if you don't have the knowledge of it. A common problem that occurs when people tinker with electricity themselves is short circuiting. For a skilled electrician you have come to the right place. Our electricians are ready for you and install new LED lighting in no time, possibly with a dimmer.
LED (Light Emitting Diode) works differently to the classic lamp. It does not work with a filament, but via diodes that convert electricity into light. LED is a semiconductor that produces light when the current is pushed in the right direction. By using different material, the bulb can give different colors. Colored led lights are also called RGB (Red,Green and Bleu). By using these colors, millions of colors can be created. The led lamp consists of a chip that gives the light. These chips are only a few millimeters in size. LED is also used in stores and offices. The lights are also used as car lights, televisions and in light decorations.
There are many different types of led bulbs. This goes from the bulb, candle, capsule or the led spotlights. It is good to be well informed beforehand and look for that information. It is also good to look at where you want the lighting to be. That way you can then choose the right led lighting.
Why would you choose led lighting?
LED lights are more durable than incandescent, halogen, fluorescent or energy saving bulbs. The led lasts longer than all the previously mentioned lamps. Led makes about 50,000 hours of burning before the bulb runs out. With the other types of lighting, the burning hours are between 1,000 to 10,000. So you are less likely to have to replace lamps. Nowadays you see that LED is widely used in lighting. Besides that the lights have a long life. The bulbs also use 80 to 90% less energy. To produce light in a led lamp, only 2 to 9% of energy is needed. An LED lamp is efficient in the use of light. It only gives light where it is needed. For example, with an incandescent lamp the light will go through all the openings. With a led lamp, you don't have to wait for the lamp to give full light. LED does that immediately. You can choose between bright white light or a warmer variant. Another advantage of led lights is that the bulb never gets hot. They are therefore less of a fire hazard. The lamp can dissipate its heat well. Yet another advantage is that led lights do not shock. This means that it is calmer for the eyes. In an old energy saving lamp there are still toxic substances, but this is no longer the case with LED. Led lighting is dimmable, but the note is that not every dimmer (including universal dimmers) is suitable. Do you want to install recessed led lights that you can dim? Then look carefully which dimmer is suitable. LED lights can be used both indoors and outdoors. Are there no disadvantages to LED? The vast majority are positive. The only thing is that it costs more to purchase than another type of lamp. However, the long life span of the LED bulb and the low energy consumption eventually pay for themselves. So it has many advantages to install led lighting in your home.
