LED Lighting Versus Traditional Lighting


Since the invention of LED lighting, many are already curious as to the difference between the new lighting solutions to the traditional one. Many have testified to its benefits and World of Thought, an LED lighting supplier agrees that it is better compared to traditional lighting. Let us look at difference between the two.

  • Lifespan. Between the two, LED lights have longer lifespan. On average, LED lights can last between 50,000 and 100,000 hours of use. Compared to fluorescent, sodium vapour and metal halide lightings, the lifespan of LED lights are 2 to 4 times longer. The average life of LED lights is in fact 40 times longer than incandescent bulb. The major advantage to this is that the maintenance costs are lower because of fewer replacements.
  • Energy Efficiency. LEDs are more efficient because it does not consume a lot of power. The energy efficiency of lighting solutions can be determined by the useful lumens or luminous efficacy. According to installers of LED lightings, they have seen that energy efficiency in the establishments they have worked on has saved between 60 and 75 per cent. A number of case studies have also shown that LED lights can save as much as 90 per cent.
  • Safety. Between LED and traditional lighting, LED lightings are safer by a big margin because it does not emit heat. Traditional bulbs, on the other hand, convert over 90 per cent of energy to heat. LED uses very little power therefore it can still be used even if the electrical system is low on voltage.
  • Size. Between LEDs and traditional lighting, LEDs are much smaller in size therefore it can be used in many applications under flexible conditions such as in residential properties, traffic lights, commercial properties and even big stadiums.
  • Color Rendering Index or CRI. In terms of CRI, LED lights have excellent ratings. CRI is used to measure the capacity of a lighting system to show the real life colour of the surroundings in comparison to natural lighting.

Looking at the list above, World of Thought is confident to recommend LED lighting solutions to their clients because of the many advantages it carry.
