What is LED lighting? 

LED Lighting

 

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are the latest and rapid technological advancement in the lighting industry. They are extremely energy efficient and perfect replacement of traditional bulbs with distinct advantages such as exceptionally longer life span (50,000 hours), enormously lower energy usage (85% more efficient), reduced maintenance costs and higher safety. In view of price erosion of LEDs, they are becoming the preferred lighting solution of both general and professional users and widely adopted in different applications.

Why switch to ecoLED lighting? 

Why switch to ecoLED lighting? 

Save Money

  • In many cases, LED products pay for themselves in less than 2 years

  • Return On Investment can be 12 – 15 times the cost of the product

  • Lifetime savings on energy and maintenance cost can be significant

  • Rebates and Tax incentives available in most states

Energy Efficient

  • LEDs are extremely energy efficient and consume up to 90% less power than traditional bulbs and lasts 25 times longer than traditional lighting

  • Emits very little heat

  • Lowers HVAC costs

Safe

  • LED lights operate at low voltage so are cool to touch even after they are on for hours so they carry less risk of causing an accidental fire or burn.

Better Light

  • Color Rendering and Quality better than Fluorescent or CFL

  • The “perceived” brightness is even higher than the measured lumens

  • Color consistency is near perfect

  • Provide more directional light

  • Does not produce harmful U/V 

Low Maintenance

  • LEDs have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours compared to 1,500 hours for incandescent bulbs. An LED light will last over 7 years (constant use) before needing replacement. 

  • LED bulbs last 10 times as long as compact fluorescent bulbs, and 133 times longer than typical incandescent bulbs.

  • More resistant to breakage. Since LEDs don't use fragile components such as glass and filaments, LEDs are able to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperature

  • LED lifespan scenarios:
    -         50,000 hours powered 4 hours/day  = 34 year lifespan
    -         50,000 hours powered 8 hours/day  = 17 year lifespan
    -         50,000 hours powered 24 hours/day = 6 year lifespan

Environmentally Friendly

  • Consumes less electricity / emits fewer greenhouse gases

  • Longer life means less landfills are impacted

  • Safer – cooler operation means less (or NO) fire hazard

  • Almost all components are 100% recyclable.  They’ll help you reduce your carbon footprint. 

  • LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like e.g mercury that are dangerous for the environment.
