As LED lighting suppliers and distributors, Nu-Light LED are well aware of the many fantastic benefits of LED lighting. Here are 4 reasons why you should switch to LED lighting today!
LED lights generate virtually no heat. Therefore, they are cool to the touch and can be left on for hours without incident or consequence if touched. For the purpose of comparison, incandescent bulbs produce 85 btu’s per hour, compared to LEDs which produce just 3.4. Incandescent lighting expels 90% of the energy it consumes in the form of heat, which makes the bulbs hot to the touch. LEDs, however, are cool to touch, reducing the potential for burns and fires.
LED lights are an environmentally friendly form of lighting because they do not contain mercury or other harmful gasses, or emit any harmful UV rays. For example, one 13w LED light emits 68% less CO2 than a standard 40w incandescent bulb running for 10 hours per day, making LED lighting a much more environmentally friendly choice.
It has recently been estimated that a household switching from 10 incandescent bulbs to LEDs would save £300 a year on energy costs. That’s quite a large amount of money considering it’s just a few light bulbs. LEDs consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. There is the argument that LED light bulbs cost more anyway, but when you factor in their life span of 25-30 years, the cost is quickly recouped over time in lower electricity costs making them the most cost effective option. The long lifespan of LEDs will dramatically reduce maintenance costs and lower long-term operating costs compared to traditional incandescent and fluorescent tubes.
On average, LED bulbs last 10 times as long as compact fluorescent bulbs, and 133 times longer than typical incandescent bulbs. 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.
