There has certainly been many comparisons between the advantages and benefits of LED technology versus traditional lighting. When you compare the energy-efficient competition on the market today, you will discover LED lighting is by far the most power-saving, most energy efficient, the cleanest and most eco-friendly. LED lighting comes with a variety of amazing benefits.
They help you absorb more nutrients from fruits and vegetables.
LED produces little infrared light and close to no UV emissions which makes them a better option for supermarkets, restaurants, and kitchen lighting. UV rays decrease nutrient levels in foods, and all other light sources, including natural and artificial, emit UV rays. In addition, LEDs do not give off heat, keeping food fresher for longer. LED lighting is highly suitable not only for goods and materials that are sensitive to heat due to the benefit of little radiated heat emission, but also for illumination of UV sensitive objects or materials such a in museums, art galleries, archeological sites etc.
LEDs contain no mercury.
A recent Energy Department study determined that LEDs have a much smaller environmental impact than incandescent bulbs. LEDs are a great alternative to compact fluorescent bulbs as well which are energy saving but, contains mercury and burns out.
Operation in extremely cold or hot temperatures.
LEDs are ideal for operation under cold and low outdoor temperature settings. For fluorescent lamps, low temperatures may affect operation and present a challenge, but LED illumination operates well also in cold settings, such as for outdoor winter settings, freezer rooms etc.
They never burn out.
LEDs have a lifetime estimate of 35,000-60,000 hours, compared with the 1,000 hour lifetime of incandescent light bulbs and the 8,000 hour lifetime for compact fluorescent lamps. And even after they reach that limit, they will simply become progressively dimmer rather than immediately burning out.
They do not attract bugs.
Bugs are attracted to high levels of UV rays, and LEDs do not emit ultraviolet light.
They help you become a safer driver.
LED headlights have a higher color temperature, which improves driver vision in low-light conditions. Also, the amount of blue light in LED aids with peripheral vision.
They are reasonably priced (for some product categories).
Since LED manufacturing technology is relatively new, some LED light options can be costly. However, prices are predicted to drop significantly over time. LED lights that arereasonably priced include barbecue lights, cabinet lights, exit signs, flashlights, night ligths, step lights, and under cabinet lights.
