LED PAR Lights with UnPARalleLED Savings!

LED Waves is refining our product line to emphasize spotlights and downlights. These types of lamps take advantage of the directional light quality of LEDs, making them both energy-efficient AND light-efficient! These underdogs of the lighting world represent the most sustainable way to illuminate a space. That is why we’re devoting the week before Earth Day to our exclusive LED PAR light bulbs!

(PAR lamps are commonly used in recessed lighting cans, track lighting, or on their own to accentuate items in retail stores or galleries. Traditionally used with halogen technology, our LED replacements use approximately 1/8th the Wattage and last ten times longer! [The number after PAR indicates the diameter of the bulb in eighths of an inch.])

This week, take 20% our entire American-made LED PAR series and free shipping for orders over $100. (FedEx Ground, continental US only. Enter code EARTHDAY2013 at checkout online.)

The above items come from LED Waves’ OEM line, which means they’re all built in-house here in Brooklyn, using the latest optimized Cree LEDs. This gives us the quality assurance to cover them with our 5 year warranty.

You can call us at 1(800)986-0169 for factory-direct quantity pricing or special orders – and not just during Earth Month. LED Waves wants to help you make it Earth Day everyday!

Free Shipping for Earth Month 2013

LED Waves is temporarily suspending our weekly Waves of Savings promotion in favor of free shipping site-wide for Earth Month. Now through April 30th, 2013; spend $100 or more and get free FedEx Ground shipping. (Continental US only. Enter coupon code EARTH2013 at checkout.)

To further our efforts of getting energy-saving LED technology in more homes and businesses by Earth Day (April 22nd), we’ll also be running lightning sales all month long. Stay posted on surprise offers by checking in here on our blog. You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.

LEDs Revolutionize Lighting From the Ground Up

We’re currently offering Free Shipping if you order $150+ worth of LED lights! See our online store for details and the promo code. Happy Earth Month.

The NYT Green Blog recently cited a RAND Corporation report on how digital subscriptions curb carbon emissions for newspaper readers. The report, commissioned by the DOE, sought out to address the way people create solutions to our energy problems.

What stands in the way of the most effective energy improvements is the backwards approach that some innovators take: They focus too narrowly on improving existing technologies, rather than rethinking technologies and habits from the ground up. Much as digital subscriptions are transforming newspaper reading habits while reducing about 150lbs of greenhouse gases a year as a side benefit (and, as pointed out in the comment section, vice versa), LED lights are changing the way we illuminate spaces, while saving energy and employing a completely different technology from the traditional incandescent bulb.
A simple analog lies in the halogen bulb. Like Edison’s original design, halogen bulbs are filament-based. A tungsten filament is encapsulated in a small amount of halogen gas (usually iodine or bromine), which cycles around and redeposits tungsten onto the filament (rather than onto the outer glass bulb). This increases the clarity of the light, and prolongs the lifespan. The result is a slightly more efficient, longer-lasting incandescent bulb.

While the halogen was a great improvement on the incandescent bulb, it doesn’t offer the most lumens per Watt because it’s still using electricity to heat up a coil. Light Emitting Diodes are solid-state, which means they do not operate on filaments and gas. A current running through an LED causes the material to naturally emit light; therefore an LED bulb gives us the most direct, efficient use of energy transmitted as illumination.

Solid state technology also flips lighting standards with 30,000+ hour lifespans which were previously unimaginable, and with more visual effects capable through digital LED controllers. So during this Earth Month we tip our hats to Nick Holonyak, the “father” of the first LED for practical lighting applications, and to all energy innovators who make waves by thinking not backwards, but from the ground up.
