The high price of LED has been a significant deterrent for many in recent years. However, as the cost of semi-conductor material falls and companies vie for consumers so LED is becoming a more cost-effective option. In conjunction, improved heat sink technology and reliability is giving customers the confidence to view LED as a long term investment. These days a typical lamp life of 20,000-50,000 is the norm and not an unrealistic manufacturer claim. Some lamps, such as the new Philips Xtreme tubes even last up to a staggering 79,000 hours. It is worth also noting that not all LED are dimmable so check before purchasing if this is something you require.
Lighting design is not just an art; it is a science as well. Dark corners and dimly lit rooms are aesthetically displeasing, and people will generally steer away from them. Poor lighting can also diminish the color and texture of a living area, actually making it look worse. Alternately, intense lighting can wash out the colors of a room, and direct lighting often overpowers delicate wall textures andor décor.
These days, however, incandescent lights are becoming something of an antique notion to be remembered with a strange mixture of dread and nostalgia. The days of trying to remove rusted fixtures from mounts, clean corroded sockets and wiring, and clear up foggy colored lenses are rapidly receding into history as new navigation lighting technology comes to the fore. Gone are the days of putting your boat in the water only to have your lights fail at the first sign of an oncoming yacht or rainstorm. Of course, we are talking about the introduction of the LED into the marine navigation lighting niche'.
