13 Aug Benefits of LED Lighting Part II
In an effort to help office managers, property managers, and hotel managers prepare for the holidays, we are doing a series on the benefits of LED lighting. Download this free LED Christmas Lights whitepaper, which features the entire series.
Last time, we briefly touched on the benefits of LED lighting for the holidays and how LED lights actually do save you money.
Today, let’s dive in a little deeper into the benefits, so you can really understand why making the investment is so worth it.
Benefits of LED lighting
First and foremost, LED bulbs are 90% more efficient and demand 10% of the energy required by incandes- cent bulbs.
Light Emitting Diodes are resistors of electrical current with the byproduct being visible light.
LED’s are far more efficient in their conversion of electricity to visible light because little to no energy is lost in the form of heat.
Because LED bulbs generate little heat in their resistance of electricity, very little power is lost with a much higher percentage going directly into generating light and that is what significantly reduces their electricity demands equating to the low cost of operation.
Longevity & Durability
The longevity of LED light sets come in the form of two factors — their astonishingly long lamp life rating and the inherent durability of how LED light bulbs are constructed.
Perhaps an even greater advantage for cost savings with LED’s beyond their incredible energy efficiency is the length of their lamp life rating or lifespan coupled with the durability their components.
In other words, they don’t burn out and they just don’t break.
Incandescent light bulbs use a fragile filament that heats up and glows to produce light while LED’s use a diode to convert electricity into visible light—hence the name, Light Emitting Diode.
LED’s are solid-state devices encased in plastic with no delicate components they are highly resistant to dam- age caused by vibration which is a leading cause of early bulb failure in incandescent lamps. Because LED bulbs are constructed with epoxy lenses and not glass they are immensely more rigid than incandescent bulbs. Most LED bulb housings are molded directly to the wire strands and are impervious to moisture and resistant to extreme temperatures. They last longer and resist breakage so you will not need to replace them with near the frequency you would of incandescent sets.
