Why invest in these LED Lighting Savings
LED’s are different to standard lighting – which burn out and stop working in a relatively short time, and/or emit lower output levels over time.
LED Lights have the benefit of a super long life span of up to 80,000 hours which means you can cut maintenance costs as the lamps last up to 8-10 times longer than standard halogen lamps making them an ideal replacement.
Some LED Lights can be operated by mains power, but when used with a Low Voltage LED Driver, LED Lights will produce more light output per watt.
A standard 50W halogen lamp turns 90% of electricity used into heat with only 10% into light. The benefit of LED Lights are that they use only 15% of the energy a standard halogen uses, provide up to 85% of the light output and create less heat making them so cool to touch.
This makes LED Lights not only energy efficient but extremely cost effective as air conditioning use can be lowered.
The benefit of LED Lights is that they are an eco-friendly form of lighting as they do not contain mercury or other harmful gasses or emit any harmful UV rays. For example, a 13w LED light emits 68% less CO2 than a standard 40w incandescent bulb running 10 hours per day.
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 that one LED light bulb can save material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs. A big step towards a greener future!
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’s have no filaments so can withstand a greater intensity of vibration and shock than standard lights making them durable with less risk of breaking and need to replace.
