Shedding a Light on the Reasons to Switch to LED Bulbs
Now more than ever property owners and commercial electricians in Toronto have become adamant about the use of LED bulbs. Why? Stick with us and we’ll help you better understand why this is the case.
Whether it’s their little to no UV radiation emittance or lower strain on your utility bill, LED lighting has taken the industrial and commercial landscapes by storm.
We’re here to touch on the more underappreciated aspects of LED lighting and how they’ll help make the case for your transition:
LED Bulbs Last Longer
Normal usage, around 6-8 hours a day, allows your LED bulbs to light your home for an average of 35,000 to 100,000 hours. Depending on the type of bulb you’re comparing it to, this is anywhere from 8-50 times longer than the rated life of alternatives.
LED Bulbs Are Significantly More Energy-Efficient
Since LED bulbs require such a small amount of energy, lighting a room with them can save you up to 80% on your yearly energy bills. On top of all this, 80%-90% of the energy used is channeled into the production of light, so you can rest well knowing your energy is being put to its intended use. We advise reaching out to a commercial electrician in Toronto to implement the most energy-efficient LED bulbs.
LED Bulbs Are Eco-Friendly
Unlike mercury vapor lights, LED bulbs do not contain mercury and are 100% recyclable. Considering how long lived they are, they help the end user in preventing unnecessary expenditures for materials and other resources associated with bulbs of other varieties.
LED Bulbs Are Resilient
Made of tough materials, LED bulbs are designed to withstand shock, impact, and abrasion. This not only helps in accident prevention but also ensures you don’t have to go to great lengths to keep inventory stocked with abundant amounts of bulbs in the event of rough handling.
LED Functions in Extreme Temperature
LED bulbs are designed to work without a hitch in cold and hot temperatures. In devastatingly cold conditions, alternative bulb variants have a hard time coping with the temperature differential and are known to burst should temperatures get too low - a problem that doesn’t exist for LED bulbs.
LED Lights Even on Low Voltage Power
LED lights still function with low amounts of power making them perfect for outdoor lighting.
LED Lights Are Safer
The combination of electricity and heat can cause a bulb to blow. Thankfully, this will never be an issue with LED bulbs. The reason? Only 10% of the energy used by LEDs is turned into heat.
