LEDs have undeniably taken over the market for conventional lighting for different reasons, but most notably will be their lesser energy consumption, lower maintenance needs, and extended lifespan. As the price of fixtures and lamps keeps on falling, more facility managers are finding ways to upgrade their current lighting system with LED worklights, given their numerous benefits compared to conventional technologies.
Some rechargeable LED worklights consumes up to 50% less electricity than traditional fluorescent, halogen, and incandescent options. This results in a more substantial savings, especially in areas with lights that are left on for a longer period of time. Also, they aim their light in a particular direction unlike with conventional bulbs that emit heat and light in all directions. With its capability for directional lighting, waster energy and light are greatly reduced.
Compared to incandescent lights, LEDS do not fair or get burn out, they just dim through time. They have an estimated lifespan of up to 30,000- 50, 000 hours or longer. In contrast, a traditional incandescent bulb can only last about 1, 000 hours. Given its longer operational life span, LEDS greatly reduce the cost of labor when replacing the bulbs.
Colder Temperature Operations
Cold temperature is well-loved by LEDs unlike with fluorescent lamps. In low temperatures, there is a need for higher voltage in order to start luminous flux and fluorescent lamps. On the other hand, the performance of LED lights increases as the operating temperature drops. This makes it the best fit for freezers, refrigerated display cases, and cold storage spaces aside from outdoor applications like building perimeter, signage, and parking lot.
With no need for glass enclosures or filaments, LEDS are resistant to breakage and are immune to impacts and vibrations. Traditional lighting is often contained in quartz of glass exteriors, which make them susceptible to damage. LEDs on the other hand do not use glass, instead, they are just mounter onto the circuit board and connected using soldered leads.
Many HID and fluorescent lamps do not really provide maximum brightness when they are switched on. In most cases, it would take like three minutes for them to reach their max light output. But LEDS are different. They are at their 100% brightness as soon as you switch them on without any restrike delay. This is very advantageous after a power outage or when employees open their building during early morning hours.
If we are seeing so many LED lights in today’s time, not only in houses, buildings, and business establishments, is because of the fact that they are very useful. These lights offer so many benefits to the users, without them having to sacrifice something in return. If you are considering of changing your lighting system, then you have a great option to consider.
