There’s no denying it. And we cannot afford to ignore it. Our choices affect the planet. And we only have the one. So, let’s make choices that minimise the impact on our big, blue marble. Which brings me straight to the many benefits of LED lighting.
As opposed to other light sources, LED lighting consumes significantly less electricity. This savings can amount to 80% to 90% in comparison to incandescent or halogen light bulbs. Not only is this good for your wallet - it is also good for the environment. And since so much less power is consumed, choosing LED lighting also contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
In addition, LED light sources have a much longer service life than their traditional predecessors. Take, for example, an LED bulb rated at 30,000 burning hours. If you burn it 8 hours per day, it will last for at least 10 years. That means you only need to replace your LED light bulb once every 10 to 20 years. This reduces the ever-growing mountain of waste, and we consume less energy recycling our light bulbs.
Win – win, as we say.
Less consumption + longer service life = cash!
When you add it all up, it quickly becomes crystal clear…
Choosing LED lighting can significantly lower your energy costs. So, besides the benefits mentioned above, this direct savings is a nice bonus.
Safe with LED
In contrast to incandescent and halogen lighting, there is no need to fear burning your fingers with LED lighting. An LED bulb lamp does not get warmer than 50°C. By comparison, a halogen bulb can reach 370 degrees Celsius. This is good news, not only for your fingers, but also for your safety! The risk of fire or of causing scorch marks on your wall or ceiling is virtually zero. (Please be still careful when touching the fitting, the temperature there can be somewhat higher.)
Fake news! LED = cold
In the past, LED lighting was rejected as being ‘cold’ or ‘too bright’. This is not true at all!
LED lighting does not have one particular colour temperature. And, LED lighting comes in all shapes and sizes. When using LED lighting at home, we recommend a colour temperature of around 2.700 Kelvin. This colour temperature provides a pleasant and warm atmosphere.
The Segula floating LED lamps are the living proof!
So... LED lighting is by far the most sustainable solution, and it ensures that you don't have to compromise on ambience. At Atmooz, we resolutely choose LED. The light sources offered on our website are, without exception, LED bulbs. For each luminaire you choose, you will find the light source that, in our opinion, perfectly matches your choice. No more, no less.
We also go one step further. Our collection includes a wide range of luminaires with integrated LEDs. Let me explain what that actually means…
As the name suggests, the light source is 'integrated' into the luminaire. There is no need to purchase the light source separately. Therefore, the light source cannot be replaced. You may consider this a disadvantage... but every disadvantage has its advantage!
The idea behind integrated LEDs is that the luminaire is built completely around the LED module. This prolongs the service life so they last longer. In addition, the designs can be made much finer and more streamlined as there is no need to reserve space for a fitting and a bulb. A nice example of this is our collection of reading lamps and our Balls-collection. .
