Benefits Of Using LED Lights

These days, you can see LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting in various places. Many people switch over from traditional incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs to LED light bulbs for home lighting. Modern cars have lots of LED lights for both exterior and interior lights. These changes have been made because of low energy consumption and long lifespan of LEDs. But LED has more benefits which is not widely known. The followings are some minor benefits of using LED lights, other than low energy consumption and long lifespan.

Reduce your carbon footprint - Carbon footprint is an amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by a person, factory, or place such as city, country, and so on. Low energy consumption directly leads to reduction of CO2 level.

Produce less heat - The reason 7 w LED light bulbs can replace 60 w incandescent light bulbs is that LED has a much better efficiency than incandescent. In other words, incandescent light bulbs wastes 53 w of energy as heat. This heat is nothing but a trouble in a room with air-conditioner.

Less maintenance - Long lifespan of LEDs reduce a frequency of maintenance. If companies hire someone to replace bulbs in their buildings, LEDs save money for labor, too.

No UV - LED doesn't produce Ultra Violet (UV) radiation. UV damages to artworks and fabrics by fading colors. And It could also cause skin and eye burns. In outdoors, no bugs gathers to LED lights.

Cold temperature operation - LED lights work well at cold temperature, while fluorescent lights decrease their performance as temperature drops. This is the reason that you often see fluorescent lights flickering inside of freezers at a supermarket. Or it takes a while to light up in winter.

Instantly turn on - LEDs come on at their full brightness instantly. It's very ideal feature for vehicle brake light. It is estimated that LED brake lights give 19 feet of an additional stopping distance at the speed of 65 mph.

Durability - LEDs are durable. That's why they are long-lasting but this benefit makes more applications to various industries, including car, train, and airplane. For home, ceiling fan lights are one of the lights you may want to replace first. And LEDs are also beneficial to portable lights, such as flashlight, wok light. camp lantern, and many others.

As you see, there are so many benefits of using LED lights. LEDs used to produce only directional light but It doesn't any more. There is a single LED can light up a large area. They are dim-able and have many colors. As the prices of LED products dropped, now it's the time to get all benefits of using LED lights.
