The LED era is here, and like everyone else you should be thinking about updating your lighting system. But before switching to anything new we often like to know more about the product we’re choosing.
The following information is definitely going to change your idea of LED lights and make you think seriously about making the switch to the latest lighting revolution.
About LED Tube Lights
LED tube lights are an excellent and energy efficient replacement of traditional fluorescent tubes. You can easily replace your T8 fluorescent tubes with LED T8 or LED T5 tubes. You will only need minor electrical modifications of the existing systems and wiring. In return you get a beautiful bright lighting experience with up to 60% energy savings.
Features & Benefits:
- Energy saving
- 100% plus luminaire efficiency
- Superior colour rendering, near daylight, index = 75
- Unique optical design for uniform light rays
- 1200mm 28W converter is turned down to only 22W
- 40,000+ hours life expectancy
- No mercury or hazardous gases
Changing to LED will not only save you more than 50% of your operating costs, it will also eliminate maintenance costs. It even reduces heat generated by existing lighting so it can also save you money on air conditioning costs.
Now let’s look into bigger picture to find out what the differences are actually there between a LED tubes and fluorescent tube light. Here are a few of the most important points of difference when comparing the two.
A typical fluorescent tube has a lifespan of approximately 9,000 hours. With turning the light on and off reducing the lifespan. The more often you switch the light on or turn it off, the less time the tubes will last. LED tubes are free from these limitations, they stay in good condition for an estimated 50,000 hours, which is approximately five times longer than their fluorescent counterparts.
Less Energy Consumption
LED tubes use approximately 30% of the power that fluorescent lighting consumes. They do so by significantly reducing the heat needed to produce the light. With a more efficient use of energy, this can mean substantial electricity bill savings, especially for offices and industrial areas that require a large amount of lighting.
Fluorescent lighting is effected by temperature, which means it works best in mild room temperatures. If the temperature increases or decreases significantly, the efficiency of the tube and quality of the light will be compromised. LED lighting is not at all effected by temperature fluctuations, room temperature have no bearing on the efficiency of the tubes. The LED tube will work exactly as it is supposed to work, no matter what the temperature of the room is.
LED tube lights generate bright, directional lighting, which means that you can position the light exactly where you need. Fluorescent lighting on the other hand, is not as bright and dissipates easily.
From all this information we can see why LED tube lights are the way of the future, far outstripping fluorescent tubes. So save both energy and money with this little switch and transform your lighting experience.
