Its probably just as well that this post had only 14 views- I should state that I am a HUGE

PROPONENT of logical energy use - especially the use of LED lighting -my home is 99%

LED lit . What could have been sent out message wise is to buy QUALITY LED lighting

products. If  you don't care about under performing LED luminiare - just buy anything,

but if you're a discerning LED consumer you will pay attention to both the radiometric

qualities of a LED lamp AND the photometric- ( the former the energy use metric the

latter is the metric pertaining to the quality of the illuminance and its inherent value.

 

I doubt any reading this would consider a sodium vapour lamps appalling glow

appropriate for a surgiical theatre or in a jewelry store. The point to be made is

that doing your due diligence prior to buying LED products is recommended, don't just buy the

cheapest ( unless its role is as an attic light) Many who will be buying a LED

product for the first time ( That's alot of people) would be well served to learn

who to discern what constitutes a well designed LED product . Learn how to

ask the questions , ask a vendor about - whose chip is being used - the mfg

& the model as well, learn to ask about the constant current driver , the

electrolytic capacitors used - Knowledge aboout the dimmabity - and

other functions will determine if there are compatibility issues with in

place switches and controllers.

 

By all means , migrate to solid state lighting- reap the benefits of LEDs minimal energy consumption-

But do the transition in a logical manner - buy the product well & the lighting issue should be stable

for a decade.But choose poorly and you could have a group of expensive paperweights.
