For many years Linear Fluorescent Lights have been the go-to when it comes to lighting large indoor spaces. Fluorescent lamps are able to convert more input power into visible light than incandescent lamps, which of course made them quickly rise in popularity. They also typically last 10 – 20 times longer than an equivalent incandescent lamp which makes them less expensive to operate in the long run.

Making decisions about lighting is harder than it’s ever been before, due in part to the high saturation of new Lighting product types and technologies. Unequivocally the latest and greatest of these new lighting technologies is L.E.D., or Light Emitting Diode. As the market is becoming more and more flooded with the latest LED products, it can be difficult for contractors to know exactly how this new technology applies to projects that would normally be done with traditional lighting techniques. So how does one demystify this new technology and make it applicable in the field today?
