What is LED


LED (Light Emitting Diodes) is the lighting of the future, no doubt about that. LED saves expensive energy, and one has to see it not only from an economical point of view, but also from the environmental side. LED lights, whether bulbs, light bars, tubes or flood lights, can be replaced all around the house/apartment, in the business and for hobby purposes.


Today they are found in all kinds of sizes and shapes as replacement for the energy-hungry “normal” lights. An example is my own kitchen, where I used to have 178 Watts in fluorescent tubes. Now I am using rigid light bars, which are consuming only 64 Watts all together, and I have the same light.

If you are working yourself around your house, there is a lot to save on energy. But also in workshops, factories and not at least in shops, huge amounts can be saved on the electricity bill every year by investing in LED.


It is not especially cheap to invest in a change to LED, but the savings will show in the long run (for factories and workshops the installment payment time is typically one and a half year (for food stores very often shorter because of the longer opening hours).


Today you can get LED lighting (especially light bulbs) in nearly every super market chain and furniture house, and often at very low prices.


Before one decides to buy these, it is clever to take a closer look at the declarations (if there are any), because price and quaality are closely cconnected. Look at lifetime and lumens per Watt.


Another important thing is the colour rendering.

This must be on the good side of 80.

On the photo you can see the difference.

All products from TERRAJOVA are 85-90.














Also LED flood lights are offered on the Intenet at

very low prices. They all look the same, because

most suppliers are using the same housings.

The cheap ones often have a very cheap driver,

which could give in after about a year or so.

The more expensive ones have Meanwell drivers (concidered world´s best) and last the promised lifetime.


To put it bluntly: You are getting, what you are paying for for!

LED (står for Light Emitting Diodes), altså lysgivende dioder, er fremtidens belysning, da de sparer på den dyrebare energi, ikke bare ud fra et økonomisk synspunkt, men også set fra et miljømæssigt perspektiv.


LED-lyskilder, hvad enten det drejer sig om pærer, lyslister eller lysrør, kommer til anvendelse overalt i boligen, i virksomheden og i hobbyen. Idag findes de i nærmest alle afskygninger til erstatning for energikrævende belysninger.

Et eksempel er mit eget køkken, hvor jeg tidligere brugte 178 Watt i lysrør under overskabende men nu, hvor jeg har skiftet ud til lyslister, som giver samme lysmængde, kun bruger 64 Watt. Fortsætter man rundt i boligen, kan der spares mange penge i energi.

Det er ikke kun i boligen, der kan spares.


Fabrikker, værksteder og ikke mindst butikker kan spare store summer årligt ved at investere i LED.
