Energy efficiency- LED lights use up to 80% less electricity than traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen options, resulting in substantial energy cost savings.
Extended life- Quality LEDs have an expected lifespan of 50,000–100,000 hours or even longer, depending on the quality of the lamp or fixture. A typical incandescent bulb lasts only about 1,000 hours.
Durability- Traditional lighting is usually contained in a glass or quartz exterior, which can be susceptible to damage. LEDs, on the other hand, are built to be far more robust with aluminum heat sinks, high-quality plastics, and glass being used only where necessary.
Instant on- Most fluorescent and HID lamps do not provide full brightness the moment they’re switched on, with many requiring three minutes or more to reach maximum light output. LEDs come on at 100-percent brightness almost instantly however, and with no re-strike delay. This can be advantageous following a power outage or anytime employees open a building during early morning hours when it is still dark outside.
