What are LED lights?

An LED is a light emitting diode and it’s basically a device that emits light for use in your residential or commercial property. It is an electrical device that is built with a component that has two electrodes. For the sake of the technology, we’ll tell you that the components are an anode and a cathode, but all you need to know is that they are the conductors where electricity runs through. The diodes in an LED are made from semi-conductive materials like silicon or selenium. They are essentially substances that conduct electricity in safe circumstances but not in situations that are dangerous like power surges etc. We specialise in the installation and repair of LED lights in Mornington Peninsula, and we know the benefits they can bring. Now that you know what an LED is, read more for an explanation for how they can light your home…

The elements of a LED light don’t contain any hazardous solids, liquids or gas like traditional light fixtures. Older lighting tech may have mercury in it which is very harmful to the environment. Not only that, but they’re also safer for your family. LED lights are also recyclable, meaning you can dispose of them efficiently. Choosing LED lighting means not only choosing toxin and pollutant free lighting, but also possible to recycle.
