LED-Tape

How can Littmanbros.com help homes use light responsibly?

Light Emitting Diodes, or LED, are chips attached to a heat source. When an electrical current is introduced through the wiring, the device produces light. Without the addition of a heat sink, the component that makes LED incredibly energy efficient, most of the energy would be converted into heat. The heat sink greatly reduces the heat output by converting a majority of the energy into beautiful light.

With this in mind, LED lights have been engineered to benefit every household. And Littmanbros.com is ready to equip you with the most cost and energy efficient products on the market.

Why Choose LED?

The answers are simple. LED lights effectively convert the highest percentage of consumed energy into light output. The percentage nearly triples that of incandescent bulbs. Additionally, incandescent bulbs convert most of their consumed energy into heat and very little into light. LED lights are built with Heat Sink components that maximize their light output and minimize the conversion of energy to heat.

LED Bulbs also last about 55 times longer than Incandescent bulbs. You will not only reduce landfill waste, you will rarely have to pull your ladder out of the garage to replace another bulb.

Light Emitting Diode, or LED, is a form of lighting that has been used in electronic equipment since 1962. So why is it just now becoming a popular and efficient form of home lighting? Initial designs of LED lighting did not produce the appropriate white light for practical household use. Additionally they did not emit enough light. In recent years, the progression of technology has enabled LED manufacturers to create a the most efficient light on the market without sacrificing the color or quality of the light. In addition, where LED lights used to be expensive, technology has also brought them significantly down in price.
