When it comes to illuminating a space, be it residential or commercial, LEDs are the way to go, especially if energy efficiency is your top priority. They use about 50% less energy than regular incandescent bulbs and have a lifespan of around 20 years, so they don’t need to be replaced as often. Another little known benefit of LED bulbs is that they don’t negatively impact your health. They don’t flicker or hum, causing eye strain and headaches, and they don’t emit mercury vapour, a toxic chemical detrimental to people and the environment.
What are integrated LEDs?
Any light fixture described as having an “integrated LED” simply means that the LED light source has been built into the fixture itself, as part of the design. This all-in-one fitting is appealing to many buyers because it saves time and money in the long run. They have a longer lifespan than screw-in LEDs and offer a higher lumen count, lower wattage, and better colour rendering index. Integrated LEDs handle heat dissipation well because they’re fitted with an advanced heat sink that directs excess heat away from the light. They also allow for more control of light output and appearance and can be simple to control in terms of dimming.
