SLB 2 Year Warranty on LEDs
There is a 2 year manufacturers warranty on all SLB LEDs so you can buy from a trusted brand.
The different types of light bulbs
The light bulb was the brain child of Thomas Edison way back in 1879 and this invention made a step change in peoples lives allowing illumination
at the flick of a switch. Before these times there were just gas lamps and candles and people would often just sit in darkness after the sun went down.
This technology behind this invention has realy stood the test of time and the filament encansescent light bulb only really started to be superceded
in the 1990s with the more widespread introduction of the the halogan light bulb, the compact fluorescent lamp(CFL) and then the LED bulb.
The halogen bulb is straight development of the filament bulb but using a tungsten filament within an insert gas and has been adpoted extensively in
the automobile industry because of its compact size. The CFL is in essence and compact version of the traditional fluorescent strip light where the
tubes are either spiralled of looped up and down. The Light-Emmiting-Diode (LED) technology has been arounbd a while but only in low power lamps
typically used as indicator lamps on switched and appliances. It is the more recent advances in technology which how mean that the LED can be made
very bright and in time will alomost undoubtably be univesally adopted for light bulbs.
How much can you save from moving to LED?
A halogen energy saving light bulb will save 30% over a tyraditional light bulb and a CFL around 80%. However an LED is typically 90% more efficient
which means that you would only use 10% of the electricity!! The exact saving will depend on a number of factors like the price you pay for electricity
but by example a typical LED bulb which is used for 8 hours per day would pay for itself after 6 months usage.
However the LED also has a lifetime of between 30 and 50 times that of a conventional incandescent light bulbs so this means that for every bulb
you change for an LED then you would typically save over £100 which is a truly outstanding saving.
Clearly the precise savings ar situation dependent so if you would like to know how much you can save by changing to LED in your home or for a commercial
project then please get in touch and ask for a SLB Free Enery Survey.
The Environmental Benefits of Changing to LEDs
LED bulbs will significantly reduce your carbon footprint because they use far less electricity than old fashioned ones and electrity created a
large amount of carbon dioxide (C02) in the generation process. TO put this into perspective about 200kg of C02 is created to generate the
electricity to light a single old fashioned 100w light bulb which is turned on for 8 hours each day. However there are additional environmental
benefits because the LED will last thirty to fifty times longer and this will significantly reduce landfill. And finally the LED does not
contain any hazardous substances like mercury which is within the tube of a CFL. That is a quick summary but check outy our blog for more details.
Lighting Design and Automation
Lighting is far more sophisticated now than it used to be and with modern LED products like LED strip and ceiling lights then lighting can make
a more signifcant contribution to the overall effect in your interior design layount. With the new lights there are now a range of control systems
available so you can set pre-programmed lighting scenes for each room of your house, have a gradual transformation from one scene to another and
additionally control remotely from your iphone. So whether you need just some advise on a few bulbs or a complete new lighting design then please
get in touch and we will be glad to help.
