Light-emitting diodes (LED) have been around since the 1960s, and are the most common lighting technology installed and highly-recommended by engineers today. Because of its durability, energy-efficiency factor, and longer lifespan compared to others, this has resulted in a rapid increase in LED usage through the years, especially in commercial and industrial spaces.
LED lights veer away from toxic substances like lead and mercury and are usually made from recyclable materials making it easier to dispose without harming the ecosystem. With this, LED lights are generally safer to your health and the environment.
LED lights have an average lifespan of 50,000 hours一or 100,000 depending on how they’re utilised. With their lengthy lifespan, LEDs can last from six to 12 years, resulting in less bulb changes through time.
LED lights are sustainable compared to other light sources. They consume far less energy (or watts) while producing more light. While other lighting technology uses about 95% of their energy producing heat, LED lights use this amount of energy solely for lighting.
The minuscule size of LED chips enables ultimate design flexibility from commercial high bays and street lights in functional spaces to mini downlights and narrow strips in decorative spaces. The options are literally endless.
Since LED lights have a longer lifespan compared to others, this eliminates the need to change lights every now and then. While the initial outlay of installing LED lights can be more costly than others in the market, their lasting benefits such as longevity and energy-efficiency are a worthy investment.
In addition to these five benefits, LED lights are also safer as it reduces heat emissions with its thermal management design. LEDs conserve energy and stay ‘cool’ eliminating the risk of potential fire and burn hazards versus heat-generating lights.
