There are a lot of advantages and benefits to the energy efficiency of LED (or light emitting diodes) vs. traditional lighting. When you compare LEDs to other energy-saving illumination methods that are available on the market today, you will find that LED lighting is by far the most power-saving and the smartest solution.
By far the most energy efficient, the cleanest and most eco-friendly way of illumination is LED lighting!
The Top 5 Benefits of LED Lighting
Long Life = Low Maintenance
Long life time stands out as the number one benefit of LED lights. LED bulbs and diodes have an outstanding operational life time expectation of up to 100,000 hours. This is 11 years of continuous operation, or 22 years of 50% operation. If you leave the LED fixture on for 8 hours per day it would take around 20 years before you would have to replace the LED bulb. The long life span of LED lights, also significantly reduces the maintenance work of not having to replace bulbs and ballasts all of the time.
- Energy Efficiency
Today’s most efficient way of illumination and lighting, with an estimated energy efficiency of 80%-90% when compared to traditional lighting and conventional light bulbs. With traditional incandescent light bulbs who operate at only a 20% energy efficiency, 80% of the electricity is lost as heat.
- Operational in Extremely Cold or Hot Temperatures
LED are ideal for operation under cold and low outdoor temperature settings. For fluorescent lamps, low temperatures may affect operation and present a challenge, but LED illumination operates well also in cold settings, such as for outdoor winter settings, freezer rooms etc.
- Instant On and Off
LED lights brighten up immediately and when powered on, which has great advantages for industrial companies, gymnasiums and the list goes on and on!
Also, LED lights can switched off and on frequently and without affecting the LED’s lifetime or light emission. In contrast, traditional lighting may take several seconds to reach full brightness, and frequent on/off switching does significantly reduce the operational life expectancy.
- Durable Quality
LEDs are extremely durable and built with sturdy components that are highly rugged and can withstand even the roughest conditions.
Because LED lights are resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts, they are excellent for rough conditions and exposure to weather, wind, rain, traffic related public exposure and construction or manufacturing sites.
Adopting LED Technology
From offices to warehouses to production buildings and docks, LED lighting is the the most cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and long-lasting solution.
LEDs are more affordable than ever and offer dramatic increases in efficiency.
