Frequently Asked Questions About LED Lamps

ARE LED LAMPS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN TRADITIONAL BULBS?

While LED bulbs may have a higher upfront cost than traditional bulbs, their energy efficiency and longevity make them more cost-effective in the long run. The savings on electricity bills and reduced replacement frequency compensate for the initial investment.


DO LED LAMPS PRODUCE HEAT?

While LED lights do generate some heat, it is significantly lower than that of incandescent bulbs. They have heat sinks and other thermal management techniques that dissipate heat efficiently, reducing the risk of overheating.


CAN LED LAMPS BE USED WITH DIMMER SWITCHES?

Not all LEDs are compatible with traditional dimmer switches. However, many manufacturers now offer dimmable LED lights that work with compatible dimmer switches. It’s essential to check the product specifications or consult the manufacturer to ensure compatibility.


DO LED LAMPS EMIT HARMFUL RADIATION?

LEDs emit minimal amounts of ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiation, making them safe for everyday use. However, purchasing LEDs from reputable manufacturers is always advisable to ensure compliance with safety standards.


CAN LED LAMPS BE RECYCLED?

LED Bulbs can be recycled, and many municipalities have established recycling programs for proper disposal. LED bulbs contain electronic components that require specialised recycling to recover valuable materials and prevent environmental contamination.
