Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are a type of solid-state lighting — semiconductors that convert electricity into light. Although once known mainly for indicator and traffic lights, LEDs in white light, general illumination applications are one of today’s most energy-efficient and rapidly-developing technologies. ENERGY STAR-qualified LEDs save 60% to 80% in energy and last up to 25 times longer than the traditional incandescent bulbs they replace. Yes 25% longer lasting is a marked improvement and saves even more money because of the virtual maintenance free quality. American Lighting only installs DLC (Design Lights Consortium) or Enegy Star listed LED’s on its projects, ensuring quality and longevity.
LED Lamps and fixtures have been coming down in price due to extreme competition and new products flooding the market in the last 2 years. Commercial Lighting is one of the largest markets today that can significantly reduce the costs of operations through new efficient lighting.
LEDs come in a variety of colors, and some are dimmable or offer convenient features such as daylight capturing and added motion/occupancy sensors. LEDs work well indoors and outdoors commercial applications because of their durability and performance in cold environments. Let us find your perfect LED match for areas such as Parking lot Lights, Bollards or pathway lights, wall packs or exterior building lighting and troffer or office lights.
