Home > Top Nine Myths of LED’s

Myth One: “LED’s give Ugly Light”

Some spectrums of LED have received negative feedback due to their stark intensity but new lighting advances have generated a full visible light spectrum, meaning LED’s now also have warmth and softer overtones.

Myth Two: “LED’s will increase consumption of rare materials”

While LED’s do use rare materials like indium, they are used in such infinitesimal amounts that if the world were to switch to LED’s, the consumption of rare materials would decrease dramatically.

Myth Three: “LED’s have low light output”

Since their first use in smaller products LED’s have proven to have incredible output potential, such as the LED auto head lights seen in the Audi A1,  and will in the future only increase in density,  brightness and light output capability.

Myth Four: “LED retrofit lamps don’t work”

Retrofit LED lamps are only a problem when installed incorrectly. A highly qualified professional they will be able to assess your needs and fit your LED’s perfectly in a retrofit fixture without the LED’s overheating, lickering or any of the other problems seen when cheaper retrofitting is implemented.

Myth Five: “LED’s colour shift with time”

Colour shifting was a problem in the early days when cheaper materials were used, but current LED’s can run for 25,000 hours or more before even a slight variance in colour can be detected.

Myth Six: “LED’s can’t run hot”

The problem with heat in LED’s arises due to the LED chip and package construction. This has become less problematic over time as better materials are utilized in LED production.

Myth Seven: “LED’s have high glare”

Quality LED’s are a less wasteful source of light and actually produce four times less glare than a standard halogen light.

Myth Eight: “LED’s are expensive”+""

Many people don’t realise the reimbursement they will receive when using LED’s which use less energy, and have to be replaced less frequently than standard light bulbs. LED’s pay back their purchase tenfold.

Myth Nine: “LED’s are dangerous”

LED light is only dangerous if one was to, as per the conditions of the experiment proclaiming LED’s to be dangerous,  stare into a bulb for twelve hours from four inches away. Otherwise they are perfectly safe for any and all lighting.
