Top 10 Benefits of LED Lighting

1. Long Life - LED Lighting Features Long Operational Life Time Expectations

‘Long life time’ stands out as the number one benefit of LED lights. LED lights have an outstanding operational life time expectation of sometimes up to 100,000 hours.
This is 11 years of continuous operation, or 22 years of 50% operation. If you leave on the LED fixture for 8 hours per day it would take around 20 years before you would have to replace the LED light.

LED’s are different to standard lighting. They don’t really burn out and stop working like a standard light, moreover the lighting diodes emit lower output levels over a long period of time and become less bright.

2. Energy Efficiency - LED Lighting Features A Much Better Energy Efficiency

They are 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. This means that about 80% of the electrical energy is converted to light, while only 20% is lost and converted into other forms of energy such as heat.

With traditional incandescent light bulbs who operate at 20% energy efficiency only and 80% of the electricity is lost as heat.

3. Ecologically Friendly - LED Lighting Is Much More Eco-Friendly

LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like mercury that are dangerous for the environment.

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 that one LED light 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

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 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 illumination produces little infrared light and close to no UV emissions.

Because of this, 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 in museums, art galleries, archaeological sites etc.

6. Design Flexibility - LED Lighting Has Powerful Flexible Design Features

LED lights can be combined in any shape to produce highly efficient illumination. Individual LEDs can be dimmed, resulting in a dynamic control of light, colour 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 lights 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 in cold settings, such as for outdoor winter settings, freezer rooms etc.

8. Light Dispersment - 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

Also, LED lights can be 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.
