We want our light fixtures to produce high-quality lighting while being as energy-efficient as possible. Seeing the impact of technology on nature, we bear the responsibility to do our best to reduce the harmful effects of modern technology on our environment. When we patronise environmental-friendly products, such as LED panel lights, we not only reduce our carbon footprint but also increase the demand for manufacturers to produce more green products.

More than that, switching to energy-efficient lights, like LED panels, can give your home the same amount of light for less. You might be wondering how to lessen your expenses at home. Or you might be planning to streamline your costs and optimise your funds for your office. Going for LED panels saves you a tonne, as lighting can account for as much as 10% household of power bills and 40% for commercial properties.

What Is a LED Panel?

LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, produce light up to 90% more efficiently than your typical incandescent light bulbs. An LED panel is a plate holding several LEDs that provide diffuse light. This means that the light they produce is evenly distributed and has no blinding effect.

LED panels deliver a wider beam angle with more usable light and less power consumption when compared to traditional fluorescent fittings.

Types of LED Panels

LED panels come in different designs and capabilities to serve your various needs. Here are the most popular ones:

Rectangular or Square LED Panels

Square and rectangular types are the most popular LED panels due to their simplistic design. Their shape makes them easily fit and blend in with any space without looking jarring.

Round LED Panels

Round LED panels are often known as hanging LED panels. They’re quite common as they offer a stylish yet minimalist flair to any room. These light fixtures come in different diameters to fit your aesthetic and needs.

Edge-lit LED Flat Panel

Tiny LED lights are strategically placed around and within the closed edges of the panel. Once turned on, the light enters the panel from the sides and projects out from the panel's surface. These are typically used for LED panel suspension kits.

Back-lit LED Panels

LED lights are laid across the panel and shine through a diffuser for this type of LED panel.

White Light LED Panels

White light, being the most commonly used form of light, is perfect for all areas and settings.

Tri-Colour LED Panels

Tri-colour LED panels give you three colour options, from warm to cool light and daylight. These coloured lights are perfect for setting a mood or atmosphere.

What Features Do LED Panels Have?

Energy Efficient

LED lighting is more energy efficient compared to other lighting types. Replacing your traditional incandescent and fluorescent light fixtures with LED panels can give you as much as 60% to 90% improvement in energy efficiency. What’s best is, you can see this energy-saving reflected in your electric bill. That’s why switching to LEDs at home and your business is a wise investment.

Longer Lifespan

A typical incandescent bulb will last you approximately a thousand hours, while an average LED panel will give you about 50,000 hours. If you use it with care and undertake proper maintenance, it can even last as long as 100,000 hours. This means your LED panel can have a lifespan of 6 to 12 years — that’s 50 times longer than your average incandescent bulb.

Environment Friendly

LEDs positive environmental impact is not limited to energy efficiency though. The manufacturing process is also better for the environment. For example, most lighting fixtures like fluorescent and mercury vapour lights use mercury, a toxic material, as an integral part of their mechanism. LED lights do not though.

No Heat and UV Emissions

Placing your hand near an active incandescent bulb, you’ll notice how hot they can get. Most traditional light bulbs turn more than 90% of their energy to heat, leaving only 10% for actual light production. LEDs emit almost no heat and UV rays, with most of their light within the visible spectrum.
