You have seen them at offices, residences, roads as well as fuel stations. LEDs are all the rage right now. But what has made LED such a popular lighting option today? Why is it that an increasing number of individuals now prefer LED lights to conventional lights?

Launched in 1962 by Nick Holonyak, Jr, LED lighting is an exciting alternative to conventional lighting sources. Since then, LED has evolved tremendously.

LEDs produce light by electroluminescence in a semiconductor material. Typically, LED lights are of red, blue and white colors. Similarly, ultraviolet, green or orange LED lights are also available in the market.

Benefits

Compared to traditional incandescent and fluorescent lighting, LEDs offer the following advantages:

• Energy Efficiency: LED lights require only 30-60 milliwatts to operate. They are the most efficient way of illumination, especially for small areas. They have an estimated energy efficiency of 90% when compared to traditional lighting. This results in lower electricity costs.

• Robust components: LEDs are robust and shockproof. Its components can withstand even the toughest conditions. On the other hand, conventional glass bulbs can be easily broken.

• Ideal for outdoors: LED lights are resistant to vibrations and impacts. Thus, they make great outdoor lighting systems, especially in places that have extreme weather conditions.

• Long life: LED lights are durable. In fact, LED bulbs have a lifespan of up to 100.000 hours. In other words, these lights can last for a decade of continuous operation.

• No UV emissions: LED produces little to no infrared light. It has zero UV emissions. It is because of this reason that LED lighting is ideal for materials that are sensitive to heat. It is installed in museums and art galleries too, being able to illuminate UV-sensitive objects.

• No mercury: LEDs do not contain mercury. In fact, they have a much smaller environmental impact than incandescent bulbs.

Misconception

• The biggest myth regarding LED lighting is that it is pricey. Due to the rapid advancements in LED lighting, there has been a dramatic cut in its cost. Its increased demand has given a boost to manufacturing too, thereby streamlining production and further reducing costs.

• Additionally, an LED bulb uses one-sixth of the energy transmitted by an incandescent bulb. It lasts up to 25 times longer than an incandescent bulb. So, if you replace an incandescent with an LED, you could end up saving more than $100 in energy costs.

Usability

In most cases, LED lighting is installed on devices, traffic lights, fuel stations, street signs, among others. It is also being widely used by household for their lighting needs.

Although LED lighting offers a myriad of benefits to its users, it is critical to buy high quality LED fixtures from renowned distributors. John W. Kennedy Company is one such gas and petroleum equipment supplier offering a wide range of complete solutions to the petroleum industry.
