Lighting Emitting Diode Benefits

LED (Light Emitting Diodes) lights are the latest technological advancement in the lighting industry. LEDs are small light bulbs that are powerful, energy-efficient, and long lasting. LEDs operate in a better way than traditional incandescent bulbs. This makes LEDs far more durable than traditional incandescent light bulbs. LED technology also provides many additional advantages over incandescent, fluorescents, and compact fluorescent lamps and lighting devices.

Increased Life Span

Easily the most significant advantage of LEDs when compared to traditional lighting solutions is the long lifespan.

The average LED lasts 50,000 operating hours to 100,000 operating hours or more.

That is 2-4 times as long as most fluorescent, metal halide, and even sodium vapor lights. It is more than 40 times as long as the average incandescent bulb.

This means less money spent replacing and maintaining your lighting system

Energy Efficiency

Most LED lighting retrofit projects result in a 60-75% improvement in the overall energy efficiency of the facility’s lighting. Depending on the existing lights and the particular LEDs installed, the savings could be more than 90%.

With LED you are saving energy and money.

Improved Safety With LED

The number one hazard when it comes to lighting is the emission of heat. LEDs emit almost no forward heat while traditional bulbs like incandescents convert more than 90% of the total energy used to power them directly into heat.

That means only 10% of the energy powering incandescent lights is actually used for light (which also makes them extremely inefficient compared to LEDs).

Additionally, because LEDs consume less power they can operate effectively on low-voltage electrical systems. These are generally much safer in the event that something goes wrong.

LED Lights Are Environmentally Friendly

LEDs do not have the environmental issues common to traditional lighting solutions like fluorescent or mercury vapor lights.

Both of these traditional solutions contain mercury internal to the bulb and thus require special handling at the end of the product’s useful lifespan.

None of these considerations are necessary with LEDs.

LED Lights Are Compact

The actual LED device is extremely small. Small power devices can be less than a tenth of a single mm2 while larger power devices can still be as small as a mm2.

Their small size makes LEDs incredibly adaptable to an infinite number of lighting applications.

Customization Options

LEDs are available in a wide range of correlated color temperature (CCT) values. They can be purchased with a “warm,” yellowish glow, as a “cool,” white light and a variety of other options.

Because LEDs are so small they can be used in virtually any application you can think of. They can be combined in bunches for a traditional bulb, used in isolation as a small device light, or strung out in sequence in a linear fashion. Just about everything you can think of can be done with LEDs.

Improved Lighting Output

Every year, smaller and smaller LEDs are developed that produce more and more light, as a function of the power consumed.

The high brightness potential is one of the main reasons many auto manufacturers are replacing incandescent lighting fixtures with LED versions.

Any property would benefit from more efficient brighter lights, which is possible with LED

Dimmable & Quick

LEDs turn on and off instantaneously. There is no warm-up period like in the case of metal halide lamps. Additionally, frequent switching doesn’t cause degradation in the device.

LEDs are able to operate at a virtually any percentage of their rated power (0 to 100%). Of note, they do require hardware specific to LED technology in order to dim (meaning you cannot use the dimming equipment for an incandescent bulb or other traditional lighting technology). A positive of operating LEDs at less than full power is that they get more efficient as the power is reduced. This also increases the total lifespan of the light itself.

Both of those advantages are absent with technologies like metal halides that actually get less efficient at lower power and in many cases cannot be dimmed at all.
