LED Lighting is very different from other lighting sources such as incandescent bulbs and CFLs. Key differences include the following:


  • Light Source: LEDs are the size of a fleck of pepper, and a mix of red, green, and blue LEDs is typically used to make white light.


Direction: LEDs emit light in a specific direction, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers

Heat: LEDs emit very little heat.whereae CFL and incandescent lights release above 80% of their energy as heat.
