If your business is thinking about switching to LED light bulbs, read on. As expert LED suppliers and installers, Nu-Light LED has revealed everything you need to know about them.
1. LEDs vs. Incandescent Bulbs
LED bulbs are different from traditional incandescent bulbs in the way they produce light. Old -fashioned incandescent light bulbs work by passing electricity through a filament, whereas LEDs produce light through the use of a semi-conductor that emits light energy when an electrical current is passed through it. This way of producing light is also different from regular energy-saver bulbs, which pass energy through mercury vapour to create UV light. This is then absorbed by a phosphor coating inside the lamp, causing it to glow.
2. They are Incredibly Energy Efficient
LEDs are the most energy-efficient bulbs on the market. They use a huge 90% less energy than traditional incandescent light bulbs and can sometimes pay for themselves through energy savings in only a couple of months.
3. LEDs are Long Lasting
LEDs are very long lasting. They can last for 25-30 years, depending on which one you buy and how you use it. The lifespan of an LED Light can be up to 50,000 hours compared to 750 to 2,000 hours for an incandescent bulb, 8,000 to 10,000 hours for a compact fluorescent and 20,000 to 30,000 hours for a linear fluorescent bulb.
4. Instant Brightness
LED’s switch on very quickly, even when they are cold, giving out light almost instantly when you flick the light switch, so you don’t have to put up with dim light while they get going!
