There are many benefits of LED lighting:
1. Improved Environmental Performance
Led lights are environmental friendly therefore they are good option for our local environment.
Using environmental friendly light source for example the LED light, attracts socially conscious consumer base as well as help companies reduce their energy consumption.
Besides, LED lights does not contain toxic chemicals/ hazardous substances and produce tiny amount of ultraviolet radiation.
Thus making them the best option for industrial building and storage facilities that contain products that are sensitive to the UV radiations.
2. Has Longer Lifespan
LED lights had an average lifespan of 50,000 hours but still it can be longer than this depending on how use and handle the lights.
Having longer lifespan help in reducing the replacement cost and the maintenance cost of the light as well as reduce waste release to the environment incase damages were to occur.
When compared to incandescent bulb, LED light is 40 times longer than the incandescent bulb. Which makes it one of the key benefits of LED lighting.

3. No UV Or Heat Emission
Unlike incandescent bulb which turns 90% of its energy to heat, using only 10% to actual light production.
LEDs on the other hand, emits almost no heat and the light they emit is within a visible spectrum.
This property makes LEDS the best solution for seasonal affective disorder [SAD]. Since most medical experts consider it the best solution for the disorder which normally affect people during dark months of the year.
The feature also makes LEDS the best option for illuminating work of art that may break down overtime with exposure to UV rays.
4. Energy Efficiency
LED lighting produces large amount of light at a lower wattage as compared to conventional lighting.
It is capable of producing between 46 and 75 lumens per watts as compared to incandescent bulb which produce 16.7 to 19.8 lumens per watt.
This feature helps in lowering the energy cost as well the overall energy use resulting in significant saving over the course of the year.
5. Extremely Affordable
Another advantage of LED light is affordability in terms of initial investment and operational costs.
LEDs cost very little to have and to maintain.
Due to its incredible energy efficiency and longer lifespan, LED lighting saves on the replacement cost, maintenance cost as well the electricity cost.
6. Ability To Withstand Frequent Switching And Instant Lighting
LED lights can turn on and off instantly, they are not affected by switching on and off.
Unlike the traditional lighting sources that may have may have shorter lifespan when they are frequently switched on and off.
It is one of those benefits of LED lighting you rarely find on other light systems.
7. Dimming Capabilities
LED lighting works well in any power percentage i.e. from 5% to 100% unlike other lighting sources such as metal halide that does not perform well when dimmed.
Design flexibility- LEDs are small which means they can be used in almost all the applications. Besides, LEDS create directional lights, this means it can be used to illuminate a desired direction within the room.
Other benefits of LED lights are:
- LED lights are eco-friendly – they don’t have mercury like traditional lighting systems such as fluorescent lights.
- LED light can work well in cold conditions
- LED lighting systems can work even under low voltage.
Clearly, quite a number of benefits of LED lights – reasons you should switch these lighting systems.
