LED Lighting is everywhere.
Why is LED Lighting valuable?
ENERGY STAR-qualified LEDs use only 20%–25% of the energy and last up to 25 times longer than the traditional incandescent bulbs they replace. LEDs use 25%–30% of the energy and last 8 to 25 times longer than halogen incandescents. – Energy.gov
The fixtures are more expensive, is it worth the investment?
They have a longer life span. Remember that on a life cycle basis, the least expensive part of the system is the fixture and lamp. The most expensive component is the energy that the system uses. LEDs have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours compared to 1,500 hours for incandescent bulbs. An LED light will last over 7 years (constant use) before needing replacement. On average, LED bulbs last 10 times as long as compact fluorescent bulbs, and 133 times longer than typical incandescent bulbs. Long lifespan of LEDs will dramatically reduce maintenance costs and lower long-term operating costs compared to traditional incandescent and fluorescent tubes.
LED lifespan scenarios:
– 50,000 hours powered 4 hours/day = 34 year lifespan
– 50,000 hours powered 8 hours/day = 17 year lifespan
– 50,000 hours powered 24 hours/day = 6 year lifespan
LED’s are more durable. LEDs are solid state lighting devices that utilize semiconductor material instead of a filament or neon gas. An LED light is a tiny chip encapsulated in an epoxy resin enclosure, which makes LEDs far sturdier than traditional incandescent light bulbs or fluorescent tubes. Since LEDs don’t use fragile components such as glass and filaments, LEDs are able to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperature. (from myLEDlight.com)
LED’s use less energy – 75% less than traditional incandescent and halogens.
