Everything You Need to Know About LED Ceiling Lights in Singapore

LED lights come in various forms and sizes, and some of them are equipped with additional features, therefore their prices can vary. While choosing the right lighting products for your home may be a tad bit difficult, here we have answered some questions you may have about LED lighting:

Are LED lights dangerous?

While LED lights have internal components that consist of hazardous substances like arsenic and lead, they aren’t deemed toxic like the CFLs (compact fluorescent lights). However, LED lighting emits blue light, which is commonly associated with health problems including sleep deprivation as a result of long-term exposure to blue light waves. It’s suggested that LED lighting with cooler shades are to be stationed at the kitchen and bathroom, and not in bedrooms or any living spaces.

What is special about LED lights?

LED Lighting does not emit UV rays that may pose a significant health risk to individuals who are overexposed to them. What’s more, LED lights are also safe for the environment as they are 100% recyclable and leave very minimal carbon footprints. Since LEDs are made of epoxy lenses in lieu of glass, they are long-lasting and much more resistant to breakage.

Why is LED lighting better?

The LED ceiling light is always preferred over the CFL or incandescent light bulb because it requires much less wattage, produces less heat yet more light, and comes at a more affordable price or costs less in the long run.

Track Lighting System

There’s a reason why the retro-looking track lighting still remains prevalent today. Given its versatility for setting up any number of adjustable ceiling spotlights, you can direct the light to wherever you want it. Track lighting blends well into a modern or industrial space. It’s also not uncommon to see a large minimalist interior adopting unobtrusive track lighting in the living room, kitchen, dining area, and reading nook. If you’re looking to leverage the economic advantage of the track lighting system, utilise LED lightings as they consume approximately 80% less energy than normal bulbs.

Which is a better light bulb: soft white or daylight?

Soft white is warm and yellow, the typical colour range seen in incandescent bulbs. This light gives a warm and cosy feeling and is often best for a living room or bedroom where people rest and unwind. On the other hand, daylight has a more bluish tone which can maximise contrast for colours, hence is more suitable for work or study room or dressing table.

What are the different types of false ceiling lights?

  • Gimbal Recessed Lighting - adjustable lighting that directs focus on different objects, especially artworks on the wall or on the bookshelf in the study area.

Can LED lights catch on fire?

While overheating is one of the reasons a bulb could start a fire, this is highly unlikely to happen with LED ceiling lights. They may feel hot to touch, but they produce light at a significantly lower temperature than other bulbs. Traditional bulbs use a filament, which loses a lot of energy through heat emissions, whereas incandescent bulbs generate heat as infrared radiation. Since LED ceiling lights do not affect the ambient temperature, they are ideal for small, confined or temperature-controlled areas.
