LEDs are becoming one of the most popular bulb choice due to their energy conserving abilities and adaptability. One of the main selling point about LEDs is how long-lasting they are, and it requires less maintenance for facility managers to have fixed or replaced. Plus, since they don’t require as much electricity to power, they can help lower electricity bills long-term. LEDs even have the ability to be customized to different brightness or color temperature and can be adapted to lighting control technologies.
LED lights do eventually burn out or reach the end of their lifespan, but it will take a while. LED lamps are the longest lasting lights on the market surpassing all of their competitors, but they need to be replaced at some point. The average LED lamp lasts around 5,000 hours. When compared to alternative lights, incandescent bulbs only last around 1,000 hours. The biggest way LEDs last longer than alternative lighting is that they don’t give off as much heat. When other lamps turn on, they tend to get really hot, however, LEDs energy conservation quality makes them give off less heat and using that energy to make the lighting brighter and last longer.
LEDs benefit facilities across all industries. Studies have shown that LEDs have had a positive effect on hospital staff and their patients. Their versatile abilities make it perfect for retail stores to highlight certain products and spaces in order to grab customers’ attention. They even have an impact on greenhouses and help agriculturists by providing the perfect lighting for their crops to grow. Plus, the level of brightness they are capable of makes them the perfect option for exterior lighting to ensure the safety of the facility.
