Improved Safety With LEDs:
That means only 10% of the energy powering incandescent lights is actually used for light (which also makes them extremely inefficient compared to LEDs).
Additionally, because LEDs consume less power they can operate effectively on low-voltage electrical systems.
What are three advantages of LEDs?
Advantages. Efficiency: LEDs emit more lumens per watt than incandescent light bulbs. The efficiency of LED lighting fixtures is not affected by shape and size, unlike fluorescent light bulbs or tubes. Color: LEDs can emit light of an intended color without using any color filters as traditional lighting methods need.
What are benefits of LED lights?
Benefits Of LED Lighting. LEDs are extremely energy efficient and consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs. Also, money and energy is saved in maintenance and replacement costs due to the long LED lifespan.LEDs have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours compared to 1,500 hours for incandescent bulbs.
Why are LEDs better?
Energy Efficient. LED lights are up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light and only 5% is wasted as heat. Less energy use reduces the demand from power plants and decreases greenhouse gas emissions.
Are LED lights dangerous to health?
LEDs use significantly less energy than even CFLs, and do not contain mercury. But LEDs do have a dark side. A study published in late 2010 in the journal Environmental Science and Technology found that LEDs contain lead, arsenic and a dozen other potentially dangerous substances.
