CooLEDlite is a BriteShot® company created with our patented cooling technology.
In developing the lights for BriteShot, the first thing we learned about LEDs is that they produce very little heat, but the heat that each LED does create is enough to cause the LED to quickly get dimmer and dimmer. Any electronic engineer would confirm that for a quality LED light, it is necessary to use material that will act as a heat sink to draw the heat out of, and away from, the LEDs. Any such heat sink has two functions. First, it needs to absorb the heat by pulling it out of the back of the LED. Secondly, it needs fins or some other way to then dissipate the heat, so that it can continue to absorb more and more heat, for as long as the light is on.
LEDs need airflow or they overheat and fail. Recessed ceiling cans present a unique problem as LEDs heat up, and because hot air rises there is no way to dissipate the heat in the can. Also, if the can extends into an attic above the ceiling, attic heat will shorten the lifetime of the LEDs. Only CooLEDlite™ solves this problem! Our lights are air cooled, below the ceiling, so that the LEDs last as long as we say they do!
