Efficient & Economical

LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights cost much less than "cheap" incandescent bulbs to operate. They last MUCH longer than CFLs and incandescent bulbs, so in the long run they also cost much less to replace! They use less electricity to produce the same amount of light which can save you a bundle of money.

Lumedio Evolution LED lighting is up to 90 percent more efficient than standard lighting and is more eco-friendly, durable, safe and stylish. Lumedio Evolution LED lights are also manufactured without the use of toxic chemicals (unlike CFLs and standard fluorescent lights which both contain mercury and are considered toxic to dispose of through the regular trash).

Color temperature is a description of the warmth or coolness of a light source. When a piece of metal is heated, the color of light it emits will change. This color begins as red in appearance and graduates to orange, yellow, white, and then blue-white to deeper colors of blue. The temperature of this metal is a physical measure in degrees Kelvin or absolute temperature. While lamps other than incandescent do not exactly mimic the output of this piece of metal, we utilize the correlated color temperature (or Kelvins) to describe the appearance of that light source as it relates to the appearance of the piece of metal (specifically a black body radiator).

By convention, yellow-red colors (like the flames of a fire) are considered warm, and blue-green colors (like light from an overcast sky) are considered cool. Higher Kelvin temperatures (4000–6000 K) are what we consider cool and lower color temperatures (2700–3500 K) are considered warm. Cool light is preferred for visual tasks because it produces higher contrast than warm light. Warm light is preferred for living spaces because it is more flattering to skin tones and clothing. A color temperature of 2700–3600 K is generally recommended for most residential indoor general and tasks. 4000-4500K is recommended for office environments, and 5000K and higher is good for technical and art design work. Color Temperature is not an indicator of lamp heat.

Advantages of Lumedio Evolution LED Lighting

  • High efficiency: Lumedio Evolution LED Lighting can reduce your lighting energy usage by 50% or more!
  • Long life: light-emitting semiconductor chip, no filament, no glass bulbs, no vibration, less breakable, life of up to 50,000 hours (incandescent life of only 800 hours.)
  • Better for the planet than fluorescent bulbs: no harmful chemicals such as mercury or lead (ordinary fluorescent bulbs contain mercury).
  • High Light efficiency: 90% of the electrical energy converted into visible light (incandescent electric energy conversion 80% for the heat, only 20% of the energy into light energy)
