8 Reasons LED is Taking Over
Organizations don’t need to spend as much money on parts and labor to replace bulbs burning out. LED Tubes are rated to last well over 50,000 hours. Standard fluorescent tubes are rated at 20,000 hours or less? LED tubes consume up to 1/5 the power of a standard fluorescent tube.
LED lighting degrades very slowly, providing a measure of stability and lower cost of maintenance. Consider the financial implications of basically eliminating the need to replace bulbs every couple of years. Moreover, mechanical components of conventional lighting solutions (such as filaments) are more likely to degrade and break down over time.

90% less power used. Saves Energy.
LED's consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. Money and energy are saved in maintenance and replacement costs due to the long LED lifespan and almost no heat and that can reduce air conditioning costs as much as 70%. Clients have seen drops of 40 - 70% in usage, resulting in lower bills and a better environmental footprint.
Lasts up to 40x longer.
LED lighting fixtures can last four to
times longer than conventional lighting solutions? One of the primary reasons for this massive difference is the
solid state technology of LED lighting
versus the use of electrical current and filaments for older bulbs.
This is a positive effect for your own organization, the environment, and might even qualify you for government programs that reward organizations with “green” initiatives.
Lifespan is 1000,000 hours compared to 1500 hours for traditional lighting. A LED lighting device can last up to 11 years under constant use. Long lifespan of LEDs will reduce maintenance costs and lower long-term operating costs compared to traditional incandescent and fluorescent tubes.
Up to 100,000 powered 4 hours a day, Equal to 68 ½ Year Lifespan
Up to 100,000 powered 8 hours a day, Equal to 34 Year Lifespan
Up to 100,000 powered 24 hours a day, Equal to 11 ½ Year Lifespan
s have no dimming, flickering, humming or buzzing. The tubes come on instantly without any warm-up time. Poor quality lighting, unreliable lighting can detract, annoy, highlight or even discolor objects due to sodium vapor lights. LEDs, do a great job of accurately reflecting actual colors, even at night.
—― They generate almost no heat.
This is a big benefit of LED lighting. LED lights generate virtually no heat, reducing potential for burns or fires. This means LED lights are cool to the touch and can be left on for hours without incident or consequence if touched. LEDs produce 3.4 BTUs/hour compared to 85 BTU's for incandescent bulbs. The downside of incandescent is they expel 90% of the energy it consumes in heat and only 10% is light. Incandescent light bulbs get hot, too hot to touch.
LEDs are able to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperature. LEDs are solid state lighting devices that utilize semiconductor material instead of a filament or neon gas. LED light is a tiny chip encapsulated in an epoxy resin enclosure, which makes LEDs far sturdier than traditional incandescent light bulbs or fluorescent tubes. LEDs do not use glass and filaments that are more fragile.
LED lighting is made from non- toxic materials, unlike fluorescent lighting that uses mercury that poses danger to humans and the environment. LEDs are also recyclable and considered Green or Earth-Friendly.
Millions of color options (50 million LED lights used during the Superbowl Lady Gaga half-time show)
LED lights are offered in a variety of base colors
LEDs come in Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Amber and White. Because traditional incandescent light bulbs use filters to produce colors, they are extremely inefficient. LEDs can be blended to produce colors and are extremely efficient. LEDs can be blended to produce millions of color options. LED light emits diodes which are completely controllable. Light-emitting diodes, are semiconductors that can be programmed to emit light at precise wavelengths, colors and tones. This valuable feature, which is found only in LED lights, will give consumers the ability to have greater control over their environment.
