  • LED Lights
    Apr 25, 2018

    The Light Emitting Diode or LED light was actually invented in the 1930’s. It has a material, called a diode, which emits light when a small amount of electricity flows through it. The high cost of LED lights prevented its widespread use for a very long time. They were first used in the displays of calculators starting in the 1970’s. As the cost of electricity dramatically increased in the late 2000’s, more energy efficient lighting solutions were sought and LED seemed to offer the very best solution:
    LED

    • LED lights are very energy efficient LED lights last 3-5 times longer than fluorescent lights and 25 times longer than traditional lights

    • LEDs convert about 80% of the energy consumed into light and they run very cool

    • LEDs have no hazardous materials and are completely recyclable

     

    The most important benefit that LED lighting offers is that it literally uses less energy than any other type of lighting while producing the same amount of light.

    This is what is meant by energy efficiency. This high energy efficiency creates a substantial savings in electric utility costs.

    As compared to traditional lights, LED offers unbelievable savings. Replacing a traditional bulb using 100 watts with its LED equivalent represents a 90% reduction in energy use, while producing the same amount of light.

    When compared to fluorescent lights, LED also offers substantial utility savings. Upgrading from the standard fluorescent tube light, the LED equivalent represents a 45% reduction in energy use.

    When compared to HID lights, LED offers astounding savings. Upgrading from the standard exterior HID light, the LED equivalent offers a 70% reduction in energy use.

    An important key benefit of LED lighting is in the reduction of maintenance costs.

    LED lights create a substantial maintenance savings due to their much longer life than the lights they replace.  This creates a substantial cost avoided in replacement lights when upgrading to LED.

    This also leads to another key benefit of LED lighting—the elimination of certain maintenance labor costs.

    Since LED lights last so much longer than the lights they replace, installation labor costs to replace bulbs and associated electronic equipment can be avoided, which can add up to a substantial savings over the life of an LED bulb.

    Another huge key benefit of LED lighting is the fact that these bulbs do not represent any potential hazardous waste.

    The disposal of fluorescent and HID bulbs is fast becoming regulated as hazardous waste. There are already hazardous waste disposal locations designated for the voluntary safe disposal of bulbs and associated electronic equipment and this is soon expected to become mandatory.

    LED lighting offers a key benefit of convenience created by its very long life.

    Upgrading to LED creates a scenario where in many situations the replacement of the LED bulbs would not be required for over a decade and nearly two decades in other situations, making for a long term, worry and maintenance free lighting solution.

    And finally, another key benefit LED lighting offers is a better quality of light and better product performance.

    Both fluorescent and HID bulbs degrade rather quickly. This is noted by fluorescent or HID bulbs changing to a lighter color, flicking on and off at random or developing a black spot at one end as they near the end of their lifespan. LED lights maintain their color much better, never flicker by design and can’t develop a black spot at one end as they near the end of their life. LED lights also produce a better light spectrum that is closer to natural light. This is how LED offers a much better quality of light.

    As far as I’m concerned, these benefits are tremendous and most definitely affect my bottom line. In this day of rising prices and looming financial disasters it’s refreshing to find a product that can revitalize our economy on some level—just like the incandescent bulb did when it replaced kerosene. The use of LED has become a passion for me and I have found it to be a true win-win opportunity.
