The debate over LED technology is diffuse so far, however, it should be noted that they have more advantages than disadvantages.

LED Technology

It stands out as advantages:

1. Energy efficiency – output of 135 lumens / watt and is not affected by size;
2. Durability – the average useful life is 50,000 hours (superior quality), thus far superior to traditional technology;
3. Warm-up period – the temporal hiatus of light maximization is immediate, rather than the micro seconds of the previous technology;
4. Shock resistance – the non-filament construction ensures a lasting solution;
5. Focus – incandescent or flowing sources impose an external reflector instead of LED technology;
6. Color rendering – LED technology is not disturbed in the color spectrum;
7. Control level – the intensity of brightness and color is controllable through modulation;
8. Environmental impact – the absence of mercury or other substances, as well as a lower energy consumption validate this option.

The disadvantages of LED technology are:

1. Reconversion cost – the reconversion of the lamps is a cost of rapid return, while technical and decoration solutions a higher temporal gap;
2. Quality of light – some experts defend photobiological risk, but high quality LEDs have a zero probability;
3. Temperature dependence – temperature can variations can affect the performance of LED lighting, however energy certification minimizes such issue;
4. Sensitive to voltage changes – requires continuous stability of the electric current, however it is not typical situation in mature structures.
