Why LED?

LED products deliver the same amount of light as conventional products, using as little as 10-15% of the power. A 10 watt light can replace a 56 watt incandescent. In its 50,000 hour lifetime, it will consume about 525 kilowatt-hours, costing about $63. A typical incandescent lasts only 2,000 hours. To match the LED, it would consume 3,250 kilowatt-hours and need to be replaced about 25 times, costing over $465. 

The LED method of producing light loses far less energy to heat than do other lighting technologies.  It's dramatically more efficient than the vacuum/filament method used in incandescent bulbs - around 85% more efficient.

Even though the bulbs are more expensive, LEDs will save money in the long run, as one is needed, every decade or two, with much less money spent on home lighting, which can account for close to 10% of home electric bills.
LED lights are designed to last as long as 50,000 hours, which means lights are changed after decades.

50,000 hours is 50 times the life of a typical indandescent bulb and 5 times the lifetime of an average compact fluorescent lamp (CFL). For a home owner, a light can expanse an entire generation.  For a business owner, it means significantly lower maintenance and labor expenses.

The production and use of LEDs requires significantly less energy than indandescents or CFLs. All SOLXLED lighting products are free of merdcury and other toxic materials, a clear win for the environment.

LEDs provide gorgeous light, illuminating people and surroundings in colour-rich light.  

SOLXLED lights look more nature than CFLs.  They have a higher color rendering, so everything under them looks more vibrant and lifelike, and can be purchased in either warm or cool.  Warm lighting gives a traditional and luxurious feeling that homeowners have come to expect.  Cool lighting creates an effective work environment or brings a contemporary look to a home.

SOLXLED lights are created with a proprietary diffusing lens and reflector system, which delivers an optimal light distribution that softly washes walls and sufficiently illuminates work surfaces.  LEDs are not visible, so there are no distractions due to hotspots or glare.

Wattage isn't an indication of brightness, but a measurement of how much energy a bulb draws. For incandescents, there is an accepted correlation between the watts drawn and the brightness, but for LEDS, watts aren't a great predictor of how bright the bulb will be.

For example, an LED bulb with comparable brightness to a 60-watt incandescent is only 8 to 12 watts.  There isn't a uniform way to convert incandescent watts to LED watts.  Instead, a different form of measurement should be used: lumens.

The lumen (lm) is the real measurement of brightness provided by a light bulb, and is the number consumers should look for when shopping for LEDs.
