REMARKABLE COST SAVINGS
Perhaps the most exciting characteristic of LEDs is that they use a fraction of the energy consumed by other light sources, yet provide superior brightness. Compare the energy savings. For example, an LED fixture used in a recessed ceiling light uses 14 watts of power, which is 78% less than a 65 watt incandescent bulb – and 22% less than 18 watt CFL bulb.
Exceptional Long Life
Replacing burned out bulbs is a hassle and an inconvenience. LEDs have a longer life than any other comparable light source available today. The life of LEDs is 50,000 up to 100,000 hours – that’s five and a half up to 11 years of continuous use!
Todays 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 a ca. 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, a 80% of the electricity is lost as heat.
LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like e.g 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 also that one LED light bulb can save material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs. A big step towards a greener future!
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.
LED illumination produces no infrared light and 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 a in museums, art galleries, archeological sites etc.
Low Heat Output
Remarkably, LEDs do not generate heat. While they are remarkably bright, they remain cool during operation. In warmer weather, this represents a big advantage for the business and home owner. When it’s hot outside, traditional light fixtures that generate heat cause the air conditioning to work even harder to cool the space. LEDs will ease the burden on your air conditioning system during hot weather and reduce your energy costs.
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.
Instant Full Light
LED lights brighten up immediately and when powered on, which has great advantages for infrastructure projects such as e.g traffic and signal lights.
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.
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
Retrofit Your Existing Fixtures
New products make it possible to replace your existing light fixtures with LED fixtures. Recessed lighting has been a popular item for many years, however, many of the existing recessed fixtures used halogen bulbs, which generate a lot of heat and consume a lot of power. Now recessed ceiling lights can be switched out and replaced with LED fixtures that are specifically designed retrofits. The old fixture comes out, and the new fixture goes in without having to cut a different-sized hole in the ceiling.
