Energy Efficiency: LED lights use up to 90% less power than traditional lighting. LED's are extremely energy efficient, consuming up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. Since LED's use only a fraction of the energy of traditional light bulbs, switching to LED lighting options results in a dramatic decrease in energy consumption and costs, saving consumers electricity and money.
Even though LED lighting has a higher initial cost than incandescent and compact fluorescent lighting the difference is quickly recouped through the incredible savings in energy, replacement and maintenance costs.
Environmentally Friendly: LED lights are made from non toxic & recyclable materials. The long lifespan of LED lights generates less waste than traditional lighting options. Energy efficiency helps in conserving and preserving energy resources. LED lighting devices are made from non toxic materials, unlike CFL's & fluorescent lighting which relies on mercury and can pose a danger to individuals and the environment. LED lighting requires no special handling or disposal considerations. LED lights are made from recyclable material that can be reused. Longer product life equals fewer units used over time, requiring the use of fewer resources and the generation of less waste.
Longevity: The lifespan of LED lights can be up to 50, 000 hours, generating great savings in replacement and maintenance costs. The use of fewer lights over time reduces the amount of waste burdening our landfills and decreases the amount of resources used in production and distribution. LED Lifespan Scenarios:
Up to 50,000 hours if powered 4
hours a day = 34 year lifespan.
Up to 50,000 hours if powered 8
hours a day = 17 year lifespan.
Up to 50,000 hours if powered 24
hours a day = 5.5 year lifespan.
Durability: LED lights are extremely sturdy and far more resilient than traditional lighting methods. LED's are solid state lighting devices that utilize semiconductor materials instead of filaments or neon gas. An LED light is a tiny chip encapsulated in an epoxy resin enclosure, making LED's far sturdier than traditional incandescent light bulbs and fluorescent tubes. LED lights do not use fragile components such as glass and filaments, so LED's can more effectively withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperatures.
Safety: LED lights generate virtually no heat. LED's are safe to the touch and drastically reduce the risk of fires. Enhanced safety is a tremendous benefit of LED lighting. LED lights generate virtually no heat…we repeat, no heat. This means LED lights are cool to the touch and can be left on for hours without incident or consequence if touched. LED's produce 3.4 btu's/hour and incandescent bulbs produce 85 btu's/hour. The incandescent lights use far more energy and are forced to expel 90% of energy consumed through heat, making the bulbs incredibly hot to touch and a fire hazard. Using LED lighting greatly reduces the potential safety risks of burns and fires.
Color: LED lights are offered in a variety of base colors such as Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Amber and White. Traditional incandescent light bulbs use filters to produce colors and a great deal of energy is lost through the filtering process making them extremely inefficient. LED's are blended to produce colors, using no filters, and are extremely efficient. Virtually unlimited color options can be produced through the blending of LED's making them incredibly versatile.
