LED lighting is the latest advancement in the lighting industry. The considerable power efficiency and lifetime of LED technology provide the opportunity to revolutionize the manner in which organizations illuminate their properties by lowering the cost of electricity and decreasing overall energy consumption.
What is LED lighting?
LED refers to Light-Emitting Diode. An LED is a semiconducting device that generates light via a specific process named electroluminescence. When an electric current is run through a semiconductor material, it gives off visible light. Therefore, an LED is entirely different from a photovoltaic cell, used in solar panels to transform visible light into electricity.
LED lighting has many benefits for industrial and commercial enterprises wishing to minimize their energy consumption and costs. The following are some of the advantages of LED lighting:
Long life span
In comparison with the lifetime of an ordinary light bulb, the lifespan of an LED light is much longer. The ordinary incandescent bulb lasts about one thousand hours. The lifetime of a measured LED light is 50,000 hours. However, the lifetime can be up to 100,000 hours depending on how well you use it. That means an LED bulb can last anywhere from six to twelve years before you need to replace it. That’s 40 times longer than an incandescent bulb.
It is now important for enterprises to be environmentally friendly. Consumers increasingly wish for environmentally friendly options, and the use of an environmentally friendly light source can help firms decrease their energy consumption, as well as attract a socially responsible consumer base.
Many traditional lighting sources, such as fluorescent lamps and mercury vapor lamps, use mercury internally in their manufacture. As a result, when they reach the end of their lifetime, they require special handling. With LEDs, you don’t have to worry about these problems.
