Return on Investment
With energy costs constantly on the increase there has never been a better time to switch to LED. Unlike other bulbs, they won’t need to be replaced for many years and often pay for themselves in less than a year of installation.
LEDs have a lifespan in excess of 50,000 hours (approximately 15 years of normal usage). Even after this amount of usage they don’t stop working they can just become visibly dimmer. Compare this to a fluorescent bulb which lasts around 10,000 hours and you can really start to see why choosing LEDs makes sense financially. LEDs also use about half the wattage of a fluorescent bulb.
The heat emitted from alternative lighting solutions is simply not there when using LEDs therefore air conditioning costs are reduced.

Energy

The main reason why LEDs are so efficient is thanks to their ability to convert most of the electricity used into visible light rather than heat.
With incandescent bulbs only 10% (at best) of power is converted into light, the rest is converted into heat. An 8W LED bulb actually produces as much light as a 65W incandescent one.
When looking at energy efficiency, not only do you need to take into account the energy savings associated with using an LED but also the savings in the energy used in the production of the components as well as that used in disposal. LEDs last so much longer than other light sources therefore fewer need to be produced or disposed of.

LEDs are compact, versatile and boast longer lifespans than any other lighting technology out there. The robust durability, economical power usage and incredibly low maintenance associated with LEDs are just some of many reasons why they are increasingly being used in illuminated signage and display lighting.

LEDs are very efficient at converting most of the electricity used into visible light rather than heat. However all of this heat is concentrated in a very small area. It is important however to consider how this heat is to be conducted away from the LED chip.
If the LEDs are to be used for long periods of time this needs to be on a conductive material or heat sink like a metal backing. This needs to be considered on each specific installation or application, If you have any questions regarding specific installations then please do not hesitate to contact us.

X-rays have become an essential tool in the medical profession. Doctors the world over rely on x-rays to diagnose internal problems. A painless and simple procedure for patients to endure, they allow for accurate medical diagnoses of bones and tissues.

Patients may be provided with a copy of the x-ray image. Without knowledge or experience most of us will find it difficult to interpret what they are seeing. However, with a little education, we can all learn how to interpret what we see. Read more »
