Light Emitting Diodes or LED lighting is all the buzz in the lighting industry. As one of the most exciting technological advancements in recent history, it offers numerous benefits. Not the least of these is its extreme energy efficiency. We've rounded up 3 of the biggest benefits of upgrading to LED lighting.
1. Long Life Span
LED have an unparalleled life span. The average Light Emiting Diode has a life span of 65,000 hours. That's over 7 years of continuous use before reaching its expiration. When compared with the average incandescent light bulb, which is only expected to last about 1,500 hours, the difference is mind boggling.
2. Energy Efficiency
LED lights are extremely energy efficient. They consume over 75% less power than incandescent bulbs. This drastic decrease in energy use equates to a dramatic decrease in power costs. It's estimated that with widespread LED use by the year 2027, the United States will see a total savings of over $30 billion at today's electricity prices. Although LEDs are significantly higher to initially purchase compared to compact fluorescent bulbs, this cost is quickly recuperated through decreased electric bills.
LEDs are extremely durable. Unlike fluorescent bulbs which utilize a filament or neon gas, LEDs are built with a semiconductor material that allows them to withstand extreme conditions. They are resistant to shock, vibrations, external impacts, and varying temperatures.
