Save Energy, Save Earth with Cost-Efficient LED Lighting
At a time when environmentalists are debating hard over global warming and conservation of energy, LED (light-emitting diodes) technology welcomes you to a world of hope and possibilities to save our planet Earth. Experts in environmental engineering believe that LED lighting will replace all incandescent lights in the next few years, thus preventing further environmental ramification.
Lighting is an essential part of all residential and commercial structure. It is also an indispensable part of transport vehicles and make for a good amount of expenditure on -cost, maintenance and repair. However, things have changed for the better since the advent of LED lighting. LED strips have been found to be four times more efficient and environment-friendly than conventional incandescent lights.
LED Lighting – Building long term relationship
LED Lighting is also relatively cost-effective and 80 percent more efficient and energy saving than the normal compact fluorescent bulbs. The percentage of efficiency is directly proportional to the electrical energy that is converted to light energy. While the conventional lights radiate 20 percent light and emit 80 percent heat; LED bulbs on the other hand radiate 80 percent light and emit 20 percent heat, which is undeniably an eco-friendly trend.
LED lights are considered to be highly cost-effective, based on the fact that that they have a prolonged lifespan than a regular light bulb, which is 25,000 -100,000 hours against 1500 – 5000 hours. This amounts to a steady partnership of 11 long years of consistent operation. And if you choose to operate them for half of the time, you can find the LED lamps lighting your life for a good 22 years. Isn’t that amazing?
LED - the best bet for Commercial Lighting
LED Lighting is not only used for lighting up homes; it is also used in commercial buildings like offices and theatres. Apart from that, LED outdoor lighting has increasingly become predominant nowadays in aircraft cabin, as traffic lights, exit signs, destination displays on buses, construction signs and even as tail-lights of cars and trucks.
The LED lighting advantage in commercial properties, especially skyscrapers and office buildings is inevitable. LED lighting can prove to be a cost-efficient investment in spite of significant cost difference between LED and incandescent lights. It is not only because LED lighting has a longer shelf life, but also because it will save the recurring cost of frequent repair, maintenance – which is supposed to incur huge cost annually.
LED lighting is no longer a luxury in the recent times; but a practical way to save energy and reduce costs while experiencing the marvel of LED technology.
Thanx a lot for this wonderful take on LED lighting. I was looking for a info on LED for business, but pleased to get an added insight on its impact on saving our planet from environmental hazards.
I now know how to impress my customers. Great article!
