The light-emitting diode (LED) is one of today's most energy-efficient and rapidly-developing lighting technologies. Quality LED light bulbs last longer, are more durable, and offer comparable or better light quality than other types of lighting. LED is a highly energy efficient lighting technology, and has the potential to fundamentally change the future of lighting in the United States. Residential LEDs -- especially ENERGY STAR rated products -- use at least 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting.But not all LED lights are created equal, here are a few things to consider when purchasing LED light bulbs or fixtures. Try our energy savings calculator to find out excatly just how much your can save by making the switch to LED.
What you should consider when buying LED
LED Life - Good-quality LED bulbs can have a useful life of 25,000 hours or more -- meaning they can last more than 25 times longer than traditional light bulbs. That is a life of more than three years if run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
LED Color - Energy-efficient bulbs now come in a range of colors. The light appearance (color) is displayed on the lighting facts label as a number on the Kelvin (K) scale. Warm or lower K means the light will have more yellow/orange hue. A warm white, about 2,700 K, is roughly the standard color of an incandescent light bulb. A cooler white light, around 7,000 K, will look more like natural daylight. Please reference our color information page for more information.
Lumens Not Watts - Next, look for lumens on the Lighting Facts Label. Since you are buying an energy-efficient bulb, you have to look for lumens rather than watts to discover how bright your bulb will be. Watts indicate energy consumed and lumens indicate light output.
LED Lighting - Excellent Choice for All Applications
LED Highbay - Warehouses and Manufacturing
LED high bay lighting has become a feasible option for warehouses and manufacturing facilities due to technological advances that provide long-lasting light and cost-saving advantages. With the Energy Information Association’s estimate of more than 10 billion square feet of warehouse space in the United States, that’s a lot of space to equip with high bay lighting. Thousands of warehouses in the United States have already installed LED lighting, and adoption continues to grow due to recent drops in fixture pricing and technology improvements. Both reduced pricing and technology improvements lead to savings that can add up to a short ROI. Shop for LED Fixtures.
High, hard-to-reach ceilings, expansive spaces, hot or cold temperatures, long operating hours and unique building characteristics can create lighting challenges and inefficiencies. That’s why so many industrial facility managers turn to lighting-spot.com for customized LED lighting solutions that maximize savings and improve performance throughout their facilities.

LED Tube conversions are the perfect fit for any industry. Shop LED Tubes.
LED Corn - Lights to replace Metal Halide & Pressure Sodium
LED replacement lamps for HID often referred to as Corn Lights because of the way the LED chips are lined up leverage the low energy and long life of LED. The LED lamp screws into the existing fixture without wiring or costly upgrades. hese lamps are energy efficient and are compliant with material restriction requirements of RoHS and offer worry-free use and disposal. These LED Corn lights typically last a minimum of 50,000 hours, come with a 5 year replacement warranty, replace all HID lamps from 35 watt all the way up to 1500 watt metal halide. They range in colors from 3000K to 5500K, are open fixture rated, have instant On/Brightness, Universal burning postions and offer extremely quick return on investments, as quick as 8 months.
