We’ve gone through the financial, health, and cosmetic benefits of LED lighting. To anyone who has the slightest care for the environment, here is another set of benefits to make that easy switch to digital signage.
By now it should be clear that a well-placed LED sign offers benefits beyond monetary rewards.
Below are some of LED sign’s environmental benefits:
No UV rays
First and foremost, LED lights have none of the UV rays and other harmful emissions. As we all know, UV rays have damaging effects on the skin. By using LED signage, you are practically saving people from the potential ill-effects of UV rays emitted by other types of lighting.
A considerable amount of energy is wasted by using fluorescent and incandescent bulbs as both emit light in all directions, as opposed to LED which emits light in a particular direction. Easily, LED is the more efficient choice. On top of that, LED lights have a low power requirement.
Because they last longer than every other type of lighting, LED lights are very easily maintained. LED light bulbs can last for as much as 100,000 hours depending on the energy level used. Ordinary incandescent bulbs can only afford up to 2,000 hours at best.
As opposed to other types of lighting like fluorescent bulbs that waste 80% of its energy on heat, LED light wastes as little as 5% on heat. It also isn’t vulnerable to breakage because it is made from solid state components.
With all the benefits LED lighting provides, it’s easy to say that LED technology is here to stay. More and more business owners see the many advantages of digital signage. The great thing is that more will be uncovered as you continue usage.
