Here’s 3 reasons why LED lights are the future of lighting:
LEDs have taken the conventional lighting world by storm for a variety of reasons. It is estimated that by the year 2030 LED lights could save 190 terawatt hours of electricity per year which equates to roughly 15 billion dollars. The cost of purchasing LED lights and their fixtures is continuing to fall. Therefore more and more facilities will opt to use LED lighting over the traditional fluorescent and halogen technology.
LED lights use around 50% less energy than their traditional counterparts. This saves a lot of money and is very beneficial for spaces that use lighting for extended periods of time. Another reason why LEDs save money and energy is because they emit light horizontally not spherically which allows for directional lighting. This reduces wasted light and energy by simply being more efficient.
LED lights don't burn out or fail like fluorescent lights do. Instead, they simply dim over a very long time. LEDs lifespan ranges from 30,000 to 50,000 hours or even longer depending on the quality of the light. A typical fluorescent light only lasts anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 hours. LEDs save money by emitting a more efficient light by using less wattage. They require less labor and maintenance cost to replace them since they last longer.
No UV Emissions
Less than 10% of the power used by fluorescent lights is converted into visible light. Most of the energy power is converted into infrared or radiated heat. LEDs emit essentially no infrared or radiated UV rays. LED technology is booming which is driving down the cost of production and cost for consumers.
Using more efficient lights has a positive impact on the environment as well as your wallet. With less wasted energy, a longer life-span, more versatility, and lower maintenance costs, it only makes sense to choose LED lighting for your home or business.
