The Phenomenal Advantages of LED Lighting
Entrenzik is making a large-scale effort to reduce the nation’s energy footprint by providing retrofit LED installations. The main reason for this is that the benefits of LED lighting usage in businesses, homes, schools, and even large-scale facilities are beyond what anyone could have ever imagined. In order for the world to comprehend our passion, they must first understand the phenomenal advantages that LED utilization can provide. The following are the key advantages of using LED lighting solutions:
A light-emitting diode (LED) converts electricity into light by using a semi-conductor. If you purchase an LED bulb today it will be six times more energy efficient than a traditional light bulb. An LED bulb can cut energy usage by up to a whopping 80%. How is this possible? Simply put, LED bulbs do not release energy into heat as standard bulbs do, which means that more light is obtained with less energy being used. In addition, LEDs last up to 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs and 10 times longer than fluorescent bulbs.
Significantly Slash Energy Costs
In 2012, nearly 50 million LEDs were installed in the United States, which saved the country nearly $675 million in energy costs. If homeowners and business owners would transition to LED lights, a potential $250 billion could be slashed in energy costs over the next 20 years. This would reduce the consumption of electricity by close to 50%. It doesn’t get any better than that!
LED bulbs are extremely diverse and can be used in everything from televisions to traffic lights. The reason they are so diverse is because they have unique characteristics such as ease of use, the inability to break, and their small size. Just think of how much energy the country could save if only LED bulbs were used. They can also be used where extremely hot and cold temperatures are present, which means they can be used in everything from freezer rooms to saunas.
What most people do not know about LED bulbs is that they do not contain any toxic chemicals. Chemicals such as mercury that are used in traditional bulbs, can be harmful to the environment. They are also 100% recyclable, so your carbon footprint is significantly reduced. One single LED light bulb can save on production and material usage equivalent to what it would take to make 25 incandescent bulbs. This means a much greener future for the U.S!
LED light bulbs light up as soon as they are switched on, which is great when it comes to infrastructure projects such as traffic lights. They can also be turned on and off without impacting light emission or the lifespan of the bulb. Brightness will not be effected and the 100th time it is switched on will appear as though it were the first.
A Brighter Place
LED lighting makes the world a much brighter place to live in. Not only do they have the ability to conserve energy, but also to save millions of dollars on overall energy costs. Regardless of what they are used for, LED lighting is a thing of the present and the future, and makes the world a much brighter and greener place to be.
