Advantages of using LED technology lighting
High lighting efficiency (performance)
LED lamps consume approximately 80% less electrical energy than a common light bulb. The light flow in LED lamps focus on the chosen area without losing energy in light bundles going in other directions (as is the case for standard light bulbs) so uniform brightness increases and the loss of lighting between light sources is reduced.
LED lamps have achieved greater light energy efficiency, getting up to 150 Lumens per Watt in high efficiency lamps and 80 Lumens per Watt in normal bulbs. This optimizes the use of emitted light and reduces the energy consumption and contamination. Consequently, LED lamps have greater useful light energy performance (as a percentage of Lumens per Watt)
Low energy consumption (energy saving)
LED lamps are highly efficient and can make savings up to 90% of incandescent lamps. Therefore, they give a fast return on investment.
Useful life of up to 50,000 hours
LED lamps have a useful life of up to 50,000 hours just like drivers that are used to be able to connect to ac current. This is due to the fact that LEDs do not contain either mechanical parts or filaments. The actual LEDs do not stop working, they just reduce their light energy capacity and so they have to be replaced every 30,000 to 50,000 hours depending on the case.
High light quality
The chromatic rendering index (CRI) is a measure of light quality. LED technology usually has a CRI of <90, compared to a CRI of 44 for common light bulbs giving us purer, clearer, brighter and deeper colors. LED lamps come in a wide versatility of colors that do not need filters to be appreciated.
Low or negligible maintenance costs
Thanks to their useful life of up to 50,000 hours, LED lamps prevent interruptions in light or lighting and means they do not have to be replaced constantly thereby offering excellent savings in terms of maintenance.
Protecting the environment and health
The light produced by LED technology does not emit UV light or infra-red rays so reducing health risks. LED lamps produce minimum heat loss and save energy, helping enormously to protect the environment and reduce CO2 emissions.
In addition, LED light bulbs can be recycled and do not pollute the environment.
