LED downlights are beginning to dominate the lighting market and for good reason. They provide ample lighting in a room while giving additional touch of sophistication and design enhancement. These downlights are some of the latest advancements in recessed lighting technology, providing greater longevity, safety and affordability.
Handy Features of LED Downlights
LED downlight has many great features offering a viable alternative to CFL and incandescent bulbs. The brightness and physical size of these lights vary significantly, ranging from large commercial units of around 160mm or so, to small decorative models of about 50mm in diameter. These LED downlights also come in a wide range of surrounds, lumen packages and designs to suit any design requirements.
Compared to the halogens, LED downlights use much less wattage depending on the model. Standard downlights utilize 3.5-31 Watts to produce the same light output as an equivalent halogen bulb. In addition to this, LED downlights are unmatched in energy efficiency and ensure tremendous savings. In fact when compared to a CFL bulb, the LED downlight is up to 50% more energy-efficient, and the best thing is that it does not contain mercury, a toxic substance that requires special disposal.
