Sophisticated LED Lighting Fixtures
Consumers have many different light bulb options when choosing light fixtures. LED lighting fixtures are quickly becoming one of the most popular choices. There are many great benefits to this light, causing more people to purchase LED floor lamps over CFL or incandescent lamps. When compared to other types of lighting options such as incandescent bulbs and CFL (compact fluorescent lights), LED lighting fixtures uses far less energy. Compared with a 60 watt light bulb, LED bulbs use a tenth of the energy, with incandescent lamps using 3,600 kilowatt hours over the same time period of 60,000 hours. CFL lights fall somewhere in between but still use more than double the amount of energy of LED. Most LED lighting fixtures are made from aluminum, gallium and arsenide to which impurities have been added. The impurities create free electrons to help the semiconductor material conduct electricity. The type of impurity used determines the color of the LED light. These colors can include green, blue, amber or red.
