Find out the benefits of LED lights and why you should consider them for your home or place of business in Albany.
LEDs have a longer life span
Longevity is one the characteristics that LEDs stand out. According to research carried out on the lifespan of LED bulbs, it was discovered that they have a life expectancy of up to 100,000 hours; which is 11 years when used at a fully operational level or 22 years at half operation. If used for 8 hours per day, you can expect them to last a mind-boggling 22 years!!! Unlike standard incandescent lighting that burns out and stops working suddenly, the LED light never burns, Instead, its output level becomes drops off over a longer period and it becomes dull.
LEDs consume less energy
Another characteristic is that they use less energy, unlike standard incandescent lighting. They are significantly more efficient, potentially 80-90% more efficient. This means ti will only convert 20 % of the energy to heat or other forms and the remain 80% will be converted to light. This makes the light brighter and, hands-down, the best energy saver.
LEDs are eco-friendly
The LED light doesn’t contain or emit toxic gases, making it safer to use. Unlike most traditional bulbs that have various materials like mercury and others, the LED bulb is free of all gases, which makes it more friendly to the ecosystem and also reduces your home carbon footprint by 1/3. Not only this, it’s also recyclable, helping to save materials used and reduce production cost.
Unlike the traditional bulb, the LED light has a control that does not only switch on or off the light but it helps to control light, color, and its distribution. It can also be used to change its effect to fit the current situation of its environment.
