How LEDs are Different
LEDs are very small, about the size of the head of a pin. Blue LEDs combined with special phosphors create high quality white light.
LEDs typically emit light in a specific direction, thereby reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers that can trap light.
LEDs are up to 90% more efficient compared with incandescent, and up to 50% more efficient compared with CFLs.
LED based lighting products, collectively referred to as Solid State Lighting (SSL), are currently available in a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial products. The rapid advancement of LED technology has led to substantial energy savings, and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
Whether you are looking for LED lighting products for your home, office, retail store, warehouse, or factory, there are LED lighting products available which are specifically designed to meet your needs .
Quality LED light bulbs last longer, are more durable, and offer better light quality compared to virtually all other forms of lighting.
Residential home lighting application
AXP Technology a-bulbs look and operate like traditional incandescent bulbs, but use a new LED filament technology that uses at least 80% less energy and are designed to last 25 times longer. The AXP Lighting family of a-bulbs are the perfect incandescent replacement for table lamps, ceiling lighting and bath fixtures around the home. They are also free of any mercury. LED lights also have the following advantages:
- Safer: LEDs are much cooler than incandescent lights, reducing the risk of combustion or burnt fingers.
- Sturdier: LEDs are made with epoxy lenses, not glass, and are much more resistant to breakage.
- Longer lasting: LEDs can last up to 25 years before replacing.
Below we have listed out the total cost savings of powering a three bedroom house when comparing obsolete incandescent bulbs to the new AXP LED light bulbs. Total savings over a ten (10) year period comes out to $3,630. From the numbers below, the total cost savings over a 25 year period equals an astonishing $9,075.
