Top 10 Benefits of LED Lighting
1. Long Life - LED Lighting Features Long Operational Life Time Expectations
This is 11 years of continuous operation, or 22 years of 50% operation. If you leave on the LED fixture for 8h per day it would take around 20 years before you’d have to replace the LED bulb.
2. Energy Efficiency - LED Lighting Features A Much Better Energy Efficiency
If you use traditional lighting and have an electricity bill of e.g. US$ 100, then US$ 80 of that money has been used to heat the room, not to light it! Using LED illumination with 80% efficiency, the electricity costs would be around US$ 20 and you’d have saved around US$ 80.
3. Ecologically Friendly - LED Lighting Is Much More Eco-Friendly
LED lights contain no toxic materials and are 100% recyclable, and will help you to reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. The long operational life time span mentioned above means also that one LED light bulb can save material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs. A big step towards a greener future!
4. Durable Quality - LED Illumination Can Withstand Rough Conditions
Because LED lights are resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts, they make great outdoor lighting systems for rough conditions and exposure to weather, wind, rain or even external vandalism, traffic related public exposure and construction or manufacturing sites.
5. Zero UV Emissions - LED Lighting Features Close to No UV Emissions
LED lighting is highly suitable not only for goods and materials that are sensitive to heat due to the benefit of little radiated heat emission, but also for illumination of UV sensitive objects or materials such as in museums, art galleries, archeological sites etc.
6. Design Flexibility - LED Lighting Has Powerful Flexible Design Features
LEDs can be combined in any shape to produce highly efficient illumination. Individual LEDs can be dimmed, resulting in a dynamic control of light, color and distribution. Well-designed LED illumination systems can achieve fantastic lighting effects, not only for the eye but also for the mood and the mind:
7. 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.
8. Light Disbursement - LED Lights Achieve Higher Application Efficiency
LED is designed to focus its light and can be directed to a specific location without the use of an external reflector, achieving a higher application efficiency than conventional lighting. Well-designed LED illumination systems are able to deliver light more efficiently to the desired location.
9. Instant Lighting & Frequent Switching - LEDs Can Be Turned On/Off Many Times
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 drastically reduce operational life expectancy.
10. Low-Voltage - LED Lighting Can Run on Low-Voltage Power Supply
A low-voltage power supply is sufficient for LED illumination. This makes it easy to use LED lighting also in outdoor settings, by connecting an external solar-energy source and is a big advantage when it comes to using LED technology in remote or rural areas.
LED is an energy efficient lighting technology that has the potential to change the future of lighting. Residential LEDs, namely ENERGY STAR rated products, use at list 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer than the standard incandescent lighting.
The widespread use of LEDs over the next 10 years could save about 348 TWh of electricity. This is the equivalent yearly electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a savings of more than $30 billion at today's electrical prices.
