BENEFITS OF LED LIGHTING
*LED (Light Emitting Diodes) are the latest and most exciting technological advancement in the lighting industry. LEDs are small, solid light bulbs which extremely enerygy efficient and long lasting. LEDs operate differently than traditional incandescent light bulbs.
*LEDs are extremely energy efficient and consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. Since LEDs use only a fraction of the energy of an incandescent light bulb there is a dramatic decrease in power costs. Also, money and enerygy is saved in maintaenance and replacement cost due to the long LED lifespan.
*Because of the low power usage of LEDs, they are becoming extremely popular for light sources in the remote areas that use solar panels.
*Although LEDs have a higher initial cost than incandescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs, the cost is quickly recouped over time in lower electricity cost.
*LEDs have a lifespan of up to 60, 000 hours compared to 1, 500 hours for incandescent bulbs. An LED light will last over 7 years (constant use) before needing replacement. On average, LED bulbs last 10 times as long as compact fluorescent bulbs, and 133 times longer than typical incandescent bulbs. Long lifespan of LEDs will dramatically reduce maintenance cost and lower long-term operating costs compared to traditional incandescent and fluorescent tubes.
LED LIFESPAN SCENARIOS:
- 50, 000 hours powered 4 hours/day = 34 year lifespan
- 50, 000 hours powered 8 hours/day = 17 year lifespan
- 50, 000 hours powered 24 hours/day = 6 year lifespan
*LEDs are solid state lighting devices that utilize semiconductor material instead of a filament or neon gas. An LED light is a tiny chip encapsulated ia an epoxy resin enclosure, which makes LEDs far sturdier than traditional incandescent light bulbs or fluorescent tubes. Since LEDs dont use fragile components such as glass andfilaments, LEDs are able to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temprature.
*Improved safety may be LED's most important benefit.
*LED light generate virtually no heat therefore they are cool to the touch and can be left on for hours without incident or consequence if touched. LED's procedure 3.4 btu's/hour, compared to 85 for incandescent bulbs. In comparison, incandescent lighting expels 90% of the energy it consumes via heat, making the bulbs hot to touch. LEDs reduce the potential for safety risks such as burns and fires.
*LEDs are made from non toxic materials, unlike fluorescent lighting that uses mercury that may pose a danger to the enviroment. LED's are also recyclable and considered "green" or Earth Friendly.
*LED light are offered in variety of base color such as red, green, blue and amber. Because traditional incandescent light bulbs use filters to produce colors, they are extremely inefficient. LEDs can be blended together to produce millions of color options.
