In today’s marketplace, there are many lighting choices available. Options range from traditional incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) from halogens to light emitting diodes (LEDs). LEDs are increasingly becoming the popular choice for general lighting applications across all sectors – architectural, offices, automotive, showrooms, broadcasting and entertainment, to name a few.
There are plenty of reasons to switch your existing lighting to LED. Here are Top 5 Reasons to choose or switch to LED:-
- Energy Savings
LEDs require less energy because they draw far less electricity than other lighting technologies, such as fluorescents and halogens. LEDs only lose 5% of the generated energy to heat, and the rest is converted into light. In fact, because of their reduced energy consumption, LEDs emit less heat. It means less demand on air conditioning systems and cooling systems. This also makes LEDs a safer option, as they are very unlikely to overheat. Compared to CFLs, LED lights are up to 80% more efficient and 75% more efficient compared to a halogen lamp.
- Environmentally Friendly
LEDs do not contain highly toxic mercury. This helps to reduce toxic waste when the LED lights are disposed. LEDs also last longer. Using fewer LED lights means less waste in the form of packaging, transportation, and disposal. Switching over to LEDs is a simple way to lower your carbon footprint.
Now, LED technology is affordable for everyone. Once you switch over to LED, you will use significantly less energy, and your monthly bills also decrease.
LED lights last much longer than other lighting products. They typically last up to 25 times longer than halogen and incandescent bulbs, and up to three times longer than CFLs. Additionally, LEDs do not have filaments or glass bulbs, which makes them very durable.
Unlike conventional light sources that reduce in output and abruptly fail, LEDs do not normally suddenly stop working and they do not require maintenance. huge saves time on servicing and repairs.
