As we all know, electricity cost is getting higher now we need lightings in our warehouse, workshops or cold rooms. Lights are often not switched off in these areas, leading to an increase in electricity bills but also causing an impact on our environment.
LED (or light-emitting diode) lighting is today’s most energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly lighting technology. So, why are LEDs getting more attention now? There are multiple benefits to implementing LEDs:
One of the main reasons LED lights are considered so eco-friendly is because they last much longer than conventional light bulbs. LED light bulbs can last up to 20 times longer than standard forms of lighting, such as incandescent bulbs or halogen bulbs, therefore, has a very positive effect on our environment. When LED lights can last longer, suppliers can produce fewer bulbs as we no longer need to replace them so often.
Less Energy Wastage
Standard LED lights waste far less energy and are 80% more energy-efficient than conventional bulbs.
Fluorescent lights convert around 95% of the energy into heat and only 5% into light. LED lights, however, convert 95% of their energy into light, with only 5% wasted as heat, which means that LEDs require less power than traditional forms of lighting. So, the fewer energy LEDs require, the better for our environment.
LEDs are Non-Toxic
Fluorescent tube lights are harmful to our environment as they contain toxic elements and chemicals, including mercury. These toxic elements can leech out and contaminate our environment when disposed of; therefore, we recommend users dispose of these fluorescent lights properly to avoid polluting our environment. On the other hand, LED lights contain no hazardous materials and do not need a special handling process for disposal.
More importantly, with technological advancement, smart features can be integrated into LED lights to further save electricity costs without compromising performance.
