Do you need to change wiring for LED lights?
LED lights don’t need special wiring. They’ll work with any standard light fixture, as long as it isn’t enclosed, which could cause heat damage. Poor wiring can cause electrical interference, but this is easily solved with a suppressor.
Can LED bulbs be used in place of incandescent?
When it comes to replacing old incandescent bulbs with LEDs, a common question that customers ask is: “Can I use an LED bulb that has a higher wattage equivalent than my fixture allows?” The simple answer is yes, as long as the LED bulb uses less wattage than your fixture.
Are all LED bulbs the same?
Not all LEDs are the same
Unlike Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs), LEDs are currently not regulated for energy efficiency – or characteristics such as colour. This means you may experience greater variation in their performance.
Do LED bulbs give off heat?
An often-quoted advantage of LEDs is that they don’t produce heat, and are cool to the touch. … In one sense this is true: LEDs are cool to the touch because they generally don’t produce heat in the form of infrared (IR) radiation (unless of course they are IR LEDs).
Do LED light bulbs get hot?
Do LEDs get hot? LEDs do give off some heat, but much less than energy-saving sticks, twisters and traditional light bulbs. Just as importantly, when used in your light fittings at home, LEDs don’t emit infrared (IR), only visible light.
