The Basics Of LED Light Tubes 101

What are LED light tubes?  Lighting is incredibly important for day-to-day life. Adequate lighting is important for a working environment, a cooking environment, and just for simple living. 

Everybody complains after Daylight Savings Time ends that it is so dark so early and they just cannot wait to get to bed - that statement itself should reflect how important lighting is in our lives. 


There are programs available that will change the tone and intensity of the light on your computer at a certain time during the day to reduce strain on your eyes and get you more ready for bed.


Lights are available in all shapes, colors, sizes, and types. The most well known light is an incandescent bulb, which has changed very little since Thomas Edison invented it back in the 1800s. 


An incandescent light bulb is made up of a glass housing, molded into its characteristic shape in a process called glass blowing, and a coiled tungsten wire. The coiled tungsten wire is what absorbs the electricity supplied to it, and glows red hot. The energy is then released as heat and light. 


Fluorescent light bulbs came onto the scene and brought with them a new shape. Fluorescent lights were available in long tubes, commonly seen in high bay lights, embedded into a ceiling, or they were available in the flattened light bulbs now often seen in newly renovated kitchens. 


These type of bulbs contained a mercury and argon gas which became excited when electricity flowed through, leading to a release of ultraviolet light which was absorbed by the fluorescent phosphorus coating on the inside of the light, which would then release light in the visible spectrum. 


Next, LED tube lights were invented and are quickly becoming popular. LEDs are available as LED tube lighting, light bulbs, and flood lights for sport fields. These light tubes don't possess dangerous gases like fluorescent lights and they don't release as much heat as an incandescent bulb, making them incredibly efficient.

LED light tubes are great for any who wishes to renovate his house, or an office or a warehouse building. While these lights may be more costly to buy initially, they quickly pay for themselves. 


The problem with incandescent light bulbs and compact fluorescent lights is the manner in which they release their energy. Due to how they release their energy, they waste a lot of it as heat. 


This will result in not only a higher electric bill for less light, but also an increased electric bill in order to run a fan or air conditioning unit to keep the room or building cool. 


In addition to this, LED tube lights bring with them many more utility rebates. This is because of how green they are, an effect of the reduced amount of carbon monoxide they use, and how efficiently they use the electricity given to them.
