If you're considering LED lights for your home or business, you may have some questions. In this blog post, we will answer four common questions about LED lights. We'll start with the basics - what are LED lights and how do they work? Then we'll discuss lifespan, brightness, and whether or not they attract bugs. By the end of this post, you'll have a good understanding of everything LED lights!
1.) What are LED Lights?
LED lights are a type of lighting that uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as the source of light. LEDs are a semiconductor device that converts electricity into visible light. LED lights are becoming increasingly popular because they are more energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan than traditional incandescent bulbs.
2.) How Do LED Lights work?
LED lights work by using semiconductor chips that emit light when an electric current is passed through them. The semiconductor material used in LEDs is made of a special type of crystal that allows electrons to flow freely through it. When the LED is turned on, electricity flows through the semiconductor material and causes the electrons to become excited and release energy in the form of light. Here's a helpful article with more information on how LED lights work.
3.) How Long Do LED Lights Last?
One common question about LED lights is how long they last. On average, an LED light will last between 25,000 and 50,000 hours. This is much longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, which only last around 750 to 1500 hours. With proper care and maintenance, your LED lights can last for many years!
However, without the proper care and maintenance of your LED lights, they can burn out much sooner. One way to ensure your LED lights last as long as possible is to clean them regularly. Dust and dirt can build up on the LEDs, which can cause them to overheat and burn out.
4.) Do LED lights attract bugs?
Believe it or not, this is a question we often hear. The answer is YES: LED lights do attract bugs. While they do not repel them, they sure do a great job of keeping bugs (somewhat) tamed! Bugs are attracted to light because they use it as a guide to finding food. More specifically, bugs are attracted to the color spectrum rather than the type of light bulb.
