What Makes LED Lights The Smarter & Brighter Choice ?
Not only are LED panel lights a high lumen light source; they also utilize a high efficiency current drive system. Heat dissipation is excellent as well. LEDs are also often configured in such a way that each bulb, or group of bulbs, can be independently switched on and off. The special circuit design of most LED panel lights in the market today would enable the lighting system to still function despite a single broken LED. Square LED panel lights could instantly flood the room with light when switched; there would be no flickering and no humming. There would also be no RF interference.

Modern Style
While the flexibility of the light source makes it possible to come up with LED panel lights in various shapes, the square LED panel light remains to be one of the most widely used because of the sleek style, which can give any setting a modern and organized look. These panel lighting systems would look great in residential buildings, but they would look best in offices, conference rooms and lobbies, or virtually any setting that would benefit from a business-like atmosphere.

LED panel lights are available in various colors, but majority of the square LED panel light colors available in the market are white (warm white, natural white and cold white), with warm white having the lowest Luminous Flux (perceived power of light) ratings and cold white having the highest.

Installation Options
LED panel lights are easy to install. There are four options in installation: built-in, mounted, recessed and suspended. Built-in and recessed installation offer a seamless look, although the later may not be as efficient. Mounted and Suspended panel lights can draw attention to the LED panel style and give a more dramatic look.

LED lights are not likely to burn out; in fact, their life span is not measured by the time it takes for them to stop functioning altogether, but by the time that it takes for the luminescence to drop by 30%. The theoretical life span of LED lights is around 100, 000 hours, which means that they could last for around 27 years. However, the average life span is around     60, 000 hours, which means that they could last up to 20 years when used for 8 hours every day. That is significantly better that the lifespan of CFLs (6, 000 to 15000 hours) or incandescent bulbs (1500 hours). The resin body is also vibration-resistant, which makes the LED light panel more durable. The significantly longer lifespan results to reduced bulb replacement costs.

Energy Efficiency
LED lighting systems are extremely energy efficient. It has been established that these lighting systems produce high intensity light, but when designed properly, a LED circuit could also have as much as 80% energy efficiency. Note that most incandescent operate at 20% efficiency (this means that of the energy used, only 20% was actually converted to light energy and the rest was released as heat energy). Square LED panel lights do not use up as much energy and still have excellent light outputs.
