The world is constantly in a state of flux, forever changing and evolving and with every new day a new challenge for us to overcome. One of those new challenges is the realisation that we can no longer waste energy, not just solely for the economic reasons but also for the environmental aspects. We need to change how we look at the world and how we react to the prospect of new technologies replacing our traditional systems.
In one area this is happening right now is in lighting. The old energy sapping, money burning traditional lamp bulbs of the past are being phased out to be replaced by LED lighting technology. Some people don’t like changes that break from our historical norm, feel that LEDs are some kind of encroaching evil and while we can understand their apprehension concerning their fear of change we should remember that LEDs are and should be seen as a friendly addition to our world.
We have all heard and read about their amazing output of light that they produce while only using small fractions of energy that a traditional light source would use. We have all read and heard about their extreme long life and low maintenance that makes lamp bulb changing a tiresome process that will soon be resigned to the past. We have all read and heard about their reduced heat output due to their power to light efficiency.
What we need to write and speak about is that LEDs are already making a difference. It is not a future thing anymore. LEDs now save energy and save money not just for individuals but also for the store, the office, the factory, the shopping centre and all the places they have been installed. Today they reduce our use of power consequently reducing the environmental impact we currently have when we produce power.
Today LEDs light a greater proportion of our homes, towns and cities. Today LEDs are beginning to be embraced for what they really are, not just a light source but a way of accepting change and breaking from the historical and finding new ways to make our environments better places to live.
LED technology is here to stay and we hope you will embrace the change.
If every household in the UK replaced their lighting with LEDs it would take 176,210 cars off the road which would be the same as planting 447 million trees per year.
