Different Types of Downlights

To create a strong, clear light in a compact space is a big challenge to the downlight designer. In order to do this, designers put all the advanced lighting technologies to the downlight.

In the current market, incandescent, halogen, CFL (compact fluorescent) and led downlight are all available, and each one has its own strengths and weaknesses. As to customers, it's of great importance to pick up the best one among all of the products.

Here are the differences between them. Compared with incandescent bulls, CFLs provide brighter light and better efficiency, which will make you live a convenient and economical life, but at the same time, their elongated shape makes them not always available for all situations; halogen bulls are very compact and they can emit a great deal of light as well as a great deal of heat, which makes things unsafe and inefficient. These three types of downlights are not that perfect; they all have something discontented. But when it comes to led downlight, it's suitable for all the above reasons.

Advantages of led downlight

Led downlight can offer us a strong, clear, and focused light without creating too much heat, which is a safer one. And also, there are other advantages which make it an inevitable choice for every customer.

Firstly, it's incomparable energy efficiency. Led downlight's power consumption is quite low; its working voltage is generally 2V-3.6V, and its working current is 0.02A-0.03A. That's to say, its power consumption is lower than 0.1W. In addition, it is long-lasting working life. A led downlight lasts at least for 50,000 hours, which is the ten times of halogens or CFLs, and five times of incandescent bulls. That's an irreplaceable feature. What's more, small size and light weight make led downlight suitable for all situations, Moreover, led downlight is totally environmentally-friendly. Unlike fluorescent containing mercury can cause pollution, led downlight is made from non-toxic material that means it could be recycled and reused.

If there must be a disadvantage of led downlight, it may be its slightly higher price.

In the mass, led downlight's advantage is more than disadvantage. However, there is still something to keep in mind about it. As it is known to us that led downlight is more expensive than the other bulls, but because of its energy efficiency and long use of life, actually it can save money.

After a quick look at the difference between all types of downlights, now you know why led downlight outshines others.
