The Truth About LED Light Bulbs

LED light bulbs are slowly becoming the bulb of choice not just in businesses but also in households. They are slowly replacing incandescent bulbs, and only for good reasons.

There is a huge disparity in life expectancy between traditional light bulbs and LED light bulbs. Depending on the energy level used, a LED bulb can last for up to 100,000 hours while typical incandescent light bulbs can only afford around 2,000 hours. Be forewarned, though: it is important to control the usage of your LED bulbs because it tends to get dimmer over time, so the actual lifespan isn’t exactly what is advertised. Still, the switch to LED bulbs is a great idea.

Here are a few tips on how to maximize the use of LED light bulbs, whether they are used at home  or in businesses via digital displays. LED signs can last even longer, which is why it is such a great investment especially for your business.

Maintain control

You have to understand that although they are energy efficient, by the time they reach the limit of their lifespan, they will have dimmed beyond use. Be reminded that you don’t leave your LED bulb open when not in use. This may not be possible for a LED signage utilized for business since sometimes it must be open for 24 hours straight. At home, though, be sure you turn it off when you are done with work. Otherwise, you are just decreasing its lifespan.

Allow for some cooling time

LED bulbs significantly lower heat output, so you must allow the LED light bulb some cooling time. Heat in LED reduces the lifespan of a LED sign. Before turning it on again, be sure that it has undergone a considerable amount of down time.

Avoid turning them on/off frequently

This is much like what your mom would say about the refrigerator. Frequently turning it on and off certainly will affect its lifespan, much like recurrently opening and closing the refrigerator. Really, common sense will tell that this isn’t smart practice.

Whether for home or for business, LED is the way to go. For the many reasons why LED technology is the smart choice and why it is here to stay, kindly visit our website.

Also, having your sales people visible will assure potential customers of topnotch customer service, so they won’t hesitate on coming in. You want to create an ambience that will make the customers feel comfortable while engaging in a different shopping experience.

Arrange and rearrange

There are times when you need to rearrange the layout of your store, either to keep up with changes, or simply to give it an entirely different mood. Or, you may want to do this in other situations like when you experience a decrease in sales and need something to perk things up.

Ask friends what they think of your store’s layout. Be open for suggestions. Perhaps you can also ask long-time customers. Are they comfortable shopping around?

See, not much to it! All you need is an acceptance that visual merchandising is a modern art form, therefore it needs a little bit of creativity. That said, who needs a visual merchandiser?
