KNOW THE BENEFITS OF LED LIGHTING
With concerns about utility consumption, more people are looking for ways to reduce their reliance on electricity. Instead of turning off lights through the day, consider an LED retrofit that replaces incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lighting. Take a closer look at the benefits of LED lighting.
Extended Operational Life Spans
The average lifespan of an incandescent light bulb is about 1,000 hours. A fluorescent light bulb lasts 7,000 to 15,000 hours. An LED light bulb can last 50,000 hours up to 100,000 hours. LED bulbs have a longer lifespan than traditional bulbs, saving you time and money by not having to change them.
An LED retrofit saves you money because LEDs turn energy into light rather than heat. LED bulbs are 80 to 90% efficient, whereas incandescent bulbs are only about 20% efficient. With an LED bulb, you use less power, which reduces your carbon footprint and your energy bill.
LED lighting doesn't contain mercury or other toxic compounds. These lights are completely recyclable. You should have no worries about special handling when the light finally does give out.
Low UV Emissions
LEDs emit light in the visible spectrum and do not produce ultraviolet light or heat. Some materials are sensitive to UV and heat. Artwork can be degraded through exposure to UV. LED lighting is safer for storage of delicate objects.
As fluorescent replacement lighting, LEDs can be combined in thousands of different patterns to produce efficient and effective lighting for any room or purpose. The lighting is more useful for room design, whether you want soothing or energizing lighting. LEDs can be quite small while still offering light, which means they can be installed in more locations.
LEDs can be turned on and off countless times without harm to their performance. When LEDs are turned on, they are at maximum output. You get brightness when you want it, not when the light is ready.
Ideal for Low-Voltage Options
LEDs work with low voltages, making them ideal for remote areas or solar energy sources. LED lighting will meet code requirements when other lights won't.
Work in Extreme Temperatures
LED light bulbs aren't affected by cold temperatures, such as in freezers or outdoor settings during the winter. LEDs also work quite well in extremely hot temperatures.
LED lighting doesn't emit heat, which makes it much safer around children. The bulbs don't get hot. LEDs are also more resistant to breaking, another safety aspect. Because they operate on low-voltage systems, if something goes wrong, LEDs are a safer option.
LED technology isn't just for commercial operations. Homeowners are also choosing LED bulbs for their benefits. If you're interested in an LED retrofit, contact our team to discuss installation options to get the most out of your lighting.
