LED Tech Facts

LED lighting technology is the safest and most efficient lighting product in production today and will rapidly replace all traditional candescent and compact fluorescent tubes currently in use. The technology has now evolved to the stage where LED lights provide a superior quality light and the return on investment can be realized in less than 2 years in high usage settings. It is easy to understand the energy saving impact of LED lights when you realize that a 3W LED bulb can replace your traditional candescent 30W bulb. Imagine replacing a bulb in your home that uses 1/10th of the power of a traditional light bulb. Apply those savings to commercial and municipal locations and realize the savings are extremely significant while having a positive impact on the environment
The use of LED lighting products results in real energy and cost reduction that translate into significant savings in the face of rapidly Substance, increasing energy costs. LED lights last 10 years with typical light usage and consume far less wattage to produce the lumen light output.

  • LEDs last 50,000 hours reducing light replacement costs
  • LEDs do not require a ballast which reduces costs of an electrician to regularly replace
  • LEDs use 50% less energy on average then the most efficient compact fluorescent bulbs
  • LEDs emit very little heat making them ideal in environments requiring cooling
  • LED lights offer numerous environmental benefits over other types of lighting for today’s environmentally focused companies and for buildings working toward LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification.
  • No mercury or lead used in the product
  • No remittance of UV or infrared rays
  • RoHS compliant (Restriction of Hazardous)
  • Can generate light with solar power
  • Long life results in less disposal in landfill

LED lights also deliver a better quality light and come in a variety of colours allowing them to be used in any setting. They are shatter proof, easy to dispose, turn on and off instantly, are dimmable and emit very little heat. LEDs will never dim or flicker because a ballast is not required as is with fluorescent lighting. Their use in refrigerated settings in place of traditional and fluorescent bulbs provide one of the most impactful opportunities to save energy costs as the reduction of heat also reduces cooling requirements.

LEDs are the next evolution in lighting with no other technology on the horizon that can compare in terms of safety, energy efficiency and quality of light produced.
