LED (light-emitting diode) is an electrical device which generates light through a semiconductor chip. In comparison, traditional incandescent lamp
generates light by heating up a filament wire inside the bulb (incandescence) and fluorescent lamp by running a current through mercury vapour
LEDs are much more energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly than incandescent lamps or CFLs. Incandescent lamps consume a lot of energy,
percentage of which is wasted as heat emission. In comparison, LEDs uses 80% less energy. CFLs generate UV rays, which can be harmful with prolong
exposure. CFLs also contain small amounts of the toxin mercury, disposal of which can be problematic. LEDs, on the other hand, are 100% recyclable.
Lastly, both incandescent and CFL brightness visibly decline over use. One of the most noticeable problems with CFLs is the flickering, which most
commonly occurs after the lamp is turned on. LEDs do not have these problems.
We at Han Star are proud of our LED products. We take quality very seriously. As such, all of our LEDs are designed and manufactured in-house,
to ensure consistency in the manufacturing process and strict quality control. All of our LEDs have a three-year warranty.
For businesses considering using LEDs in their commercial space, the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) currently offers rebate incentives through the
saveONenergy Retrofit Program. For more information, visit
For the home, there are bi-annual COUPON EVENTS which offer instant discounts on ENERGY STAR-certified LEDs.
