Make Lighting Installation Easy with Integrated LED Lights
Integrated LED lights have become increasingly popular in recent years because of the benefits of choosing integrated LEDs over screw-in or LED-ready fixtures. However, you might be wondering, what is an integrated LED light? In an integrated fixture, the LED arrays or chips are built directly into the lighting unit. This differs from more standard fixtures that allow for LED bulbs to be freely installed and removed. For this reason, integrated LEDs are a perfect solution for individuals upgrading their lighting because it allows for an easy and painless installation. Below, we’ve listed the top benefits of choosing integrated fixtures.
Longer Life Span
The main draw behind integrated LED lights is that these lights last considerably longer than screw-in fixtures due to greater heat dissipation. Heat is one of the main reasons a light bulb degrades over time, and in many cases with screw-in bulbs, the lighting fixture does not offer an effective way to transfer heat from the bulb. On the other hand, integrated LED fixtures are designed to dissipate heat through built-in heat sinks. In an integrated fixture, LED chips are typically mounted on aluminum and sit on a metal frame. These materials are great conductors and help move heat away from the LED chips to regulate the temperature. Therefore, a lower-temperature lighting unit results in a longer-lasting lighting unit.
We offer integrated LED lights that are rated for 50,000 hours or more (depending on the fixture type). This is almost double the lifespan rated for screw-in bulbs, which are usually rated at 20,000-30,000 hours. When you install an integrated LED, you might not see a decrease in your lighting output for upwards of 20 years.
Smarter Light Emission
Integrated LED lights have smarter light emissions because the integrated fixtures are designed to direct the light beam downwards or outwards in the intended direction. Since integrated LEDs are a directional light source, they reduce light pollution and cut down on wasted lighting. Conversely, most plug-in bulbs emit light everywhere since the plug-in bulbs are not customized for each individual fixture.
Buying integrated LED lights means you can skip the hassle of shopping for both fixtures and bulbs. Instead, all you need to do is choose which lighting fixture has the specs you want. Our integrated light fixtures are made from high-quality materials, so you know that you will get dependable and durable lighting fixtures that will last for many years to come.
With integrated LED lights, you will never have to worry about choosing the correct bulbs for your lighting fixture. Since integrated LED lights are built into their fixtures, both parts are guaranteed to be compatible. However, if you have outdated screw-in fixtures and try to install newer bulbs, or have new fixtures and try installing older bulbs, you may run into issues with the efficiency and lifespan of your products if they are not meant to be used together. Buying integrated LEDs ensures you will avoid any compatibility issues, which leads to a better peace of mind for you.
In addition to guaranteed compatibility and a longer life span, other benefits of using integrated LED lights include increased waterproofing and lower maintenance. Some integrated fixtures have pre-sealed housing and design differences that decrease the ways for water to get into the lighting unit. This ensures you will have fewer problems to keep up with, therefore saving you time in the long run.
As you can see, installing integrated LED lights is a smart choice for individuals who value easy and painless installation. SuperBrightLEDs sells a wide variety of integrated lighting options.
