Don`t lose time reading this article. Simply buy and spot the difference!
Traditional incandescent light bulbs operate at 20% energy efficiency, 80% of the electricity is wasted by being transformed into heat. Ever felt a hot light bulb? LED lights operate at 80-90% energy efficiency. This means they provide about 80% light output and create less heat making them so cool to touch.
Let`s say you use traditional lighting and your monthly electricity bill is 100 €. 80% of that money is used to heat the room, then you spent 80 € to heat the room instead of lighting it. If you use LED lighting with 80% efficiency you will not only use 80% of your money to light (not heat the room) but spend only 20 €.
LED diodes have an outstanding operational life time expectation of up to 80.000 hours. This is 9 years of continuous operation, or 18 years of 50% operation.
If you leave on the LED lights for 10h per day it would take around 22 years before you’d have to replace them.
LED‘s have no filaments; they are built with sturdy components that can resist shock, vibrations and external impacts. This makes them durable with less risk of breaking. Also, great outdoor lighting solution for rough conditions and exposure to weather, wind, rain.
FLEXIBLE DESIGN & COMPACT SIZE
LED bulbs can be very small making them ideal for fitting into hard to reach and compact areas.
LED lights can be dimmed, resulting in a dynamic control of light, color and distribution. Well-designed LED illumination systems can achieve incredible lighting effects.
LED lights will start at full brightness, instantly, every time. They switch on and off instantly which make them ideal for infrastructure projects such as traffic and signal lights.
Most LED lights operate at low voltage so are cool to touch and much safer to handle during installation and maintenance.
LED lights are free of toxic chemicals and 100% recyclable. They do not contain mercury or other harmful gasses.
One LED light bulb can save the material and production of 25 traditional light bulbs which is a big step for a greener future.
NO IR or UV RADIATION
LED illumination produces little infrared light and close to no UV emissions.
LED lighting is highly suitable for goods and materials that are sensitive to heat. Also, for illumination of UV sensitive objects or materials such a in museums, art galleries, archeological sites etc.
