In recent years, LED lightings have grown to become the preferred choice of many as the perfect solution for their lighting needs. LED lights has demonstrated its ability to produce higher performance over their traditional fluorescent counterpart, and has  served well in fulfilling the needs of residential, commercial and industrial places alike.

Safety of LED very much depending on the LED driver. It is listed in Spring Singapore  under Consumer Protection (Safety Requirements) Registration Scheme (CPS) as controlled goods. To quality the Safety Mark, products must undergo stringent safety test by designated third party Conformity Assessment Body and Recognised Testing Laboratories. This test focus on safety of the products and includes ensuring proper isolation between AC/DC, enclosure material fire hazard property, component used to be safety certified and etc.

By now, you must have heard the benefits of LED lightings. If you are still not convinced to make the switch, here are some of the top reasons why you should choose LED lightings.

1. High energy efficiency

By far, LED lights are the most energy-saving type of lighting in the market. It is unavoidable that some electrical energy would be lost and converted to another forms of energy such as heat energy. While traditional lighting performs at only 20% efficiency, where only 20% of electrical energy is converted to light, in LED lights, almost about 80% of electrical energy is converted to light. Now you are assured that the energy you pay for is actually used to brighten up your room instead of heating up the room!

2. High cost efficiency

LED lights may cost slightly more than traditional energy-saving fluorescent, as energy efficient as LED lights are, LED lights are also low in power consumption. Get ready to enjoy the cuts in your electrical bills.

3. No UV

Prolonged exposure to the harmful UV rays can be damaging to your body in the long term, such as skin dryness and cataract in the eye. LED lights emit almost no UV emissions at all, perfect for lighting up UV sensitive materials such as antiques and art pieces.  

4. No Flickering

As LED is using DC current that is constant, there is no flicking in the light, unlike AC current which cycles at 50/60Hz that is bad for reading.

5. Focused lighting

LED is designed to focus its light and can be directed to a specific location without the use of an external reflector, achieving a higher application efficiency than conventional lighting. Well-designed LED illumination systems are able to deliver light more efficiently to the desired location.

6. Instant Lighting & Frequent Switching

LED lights brighten up immediately and when powered on, which has great advantages for infrastructure projects such as e.g traffic and signal lights.
Also, LED lights can switched off and on frequently and without affecting the LED’s lifetime or light emission. In contrast, traditional lighting may take several seconds to reach full brightness, and frequent on/off switching does drastically reduce operational life expectancy.

7. Less attraction to Insect

Most insect is attracted to Blue light and significantly lesser in Red light. Due to the narrow light spectrum in LED, most of the insect is "not able to see well" when warm white/Red LED are used.
