• Lighting News: 13 Reasons Why LED Lighting Is Awesome

  • The light-emitting diode (LED) is the most energy-efficient bulb lighting technology you can find on the market today. In addition to the energy-saving benefits, LED light bulbs are more durable, last longer, and offer improved lighting quality than other types of bulbs. Check out some of the fantastic reasons why these bulbs are so awesome.

    The Extra Cash In Your Wallet Stays Put

    According to Energy.gov, residential LED bulbs (especially ENERGY STAR products) use 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting.

    LEDs Open Opportunities For Recreational Facilities

    Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan recently had a state of the art LED system installed that is said to improve visibility for players and spectators alike—while reducing energy consumption. It is predicted that this system will greatly reduce CO2 emissions and maintenance costs over time.

    LED Lighting Promotes Cool, New Technological Advancements

    Zylight, an international lighting solution provider, recently demonstrated a number of new LED technologies at a popular news content conference in Amsterdam. The new products include a remotely controlled wireless fob that links to an iOs device to adjust lighting levels, a variable color LED soft light that adjusts from tungsten to daylight, and an on-camera light build for broadcast news environments.

    The Pilot Flying Your Airplane Has A Better View Of The Runway

    A Northwest Arkansas airport recently replaced their incandescent bulbs with LEDs. Clay Rogers, the Airport’s director, mentioned that, “Changing out the lighting at the North Little Rock Airport, has eliminated problems it had with its older incandescent lights burning out on runways and taxiways and will mean cost-savings for the airport.” So, not only do LEDs reduce costs and emissions, they keep everyone safe!

    LED Lights Versus Conventional Lighting Is Simply Better

    LED lighting definitely outweighs in pros than in cons. To name some pros…

    1. LED bulbs and diodes last the longest, sometimes up to 100.000 hours.
    2. Like we mentioned before, the bulbs are highly efficient (up to 80% to 90%) compared to traditional bulbs.
    3. These bulbs are better for the environment, as they are free of toxic chemicals and are 100% recyclable.
    4. LED bulbs are extremely durable and can withstand harsh environments.
    5. This type of lighting features close to ZERO UV emissions.
    6. LED lighting has design flexibility, in that the bulbs can be any shape to create various types of mood illumination.
    7. These bulbs can operate in hot or cold conditions.
    8. LED lights can achieve high light dispersement.
    9. You only need a low voltage supply to run this type of lighting.
    10. No need for you to worry about the bulbs warming up or turning the light switch off and on. LEDs provide instant lighting, and can be turned off and on with no long term effects.

    With the benefits of switching to LEDs continuing to increase, especially with emerging technologies, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t invest in LED lighting.
