Why are LEDs considered more efficient than conventional light sources?


In many cases when comparing the lumen output between LEDs and conventional light sources, LEDs may have lower lumen value However LEDs are directional light sources. All the lumens emitted from an LED are directed towards the task area; while conventional sources emit light in all directions which are then modulated in a given direction with optical systems like reflectors and lenses. The proportion of lumens that falls in the task area from an LED light source is greater than that of a conventional light source.
