How to switch to LED - Trend in replacing of Traditional Lamps

LED as a New energy, more and more popular used in Commercial, Industrial and Residential areas. We make you clear that how Reasons to Switch to LED - Trend in replacing of Traditional Lamps like Metal Hilade, High Pressure Sodium, Fluorescents, Incandescents, All above traditional lams are high power consumption, waste lots of electricity, high index of carbon dioxide and caused environment pollution heavily.


Today, We would like to share this article"Why LED Lights way" and may you love it.


Why LED Lights the way.


1. SAVE MONEY


The LED lamps that are used in our fixtures can directly replace older,higher wattages lighting technologies while providing a rated life of 10,000 + hours, that means you save moneny or reduced electrical consumption as well as drastically reduced replacement costs.


2. Electrical Consumption: ( Electrical power consumption )


LED lamps use far less energy to light the same area as the older metal hilade and high pressure sodium technologies,this translates into cost savings of 40% or more, as seen in the chart below:











3. Maintenance Costs:


LED lamps have a rated life of 10,000+hours, which translates into more than 11 years of 24 hour light from a single lamp. No other technology can match LED for lamp life,No only does this reduce the direct cost of replacement lamps, but also the time and money used for labor to perform this replacements, as well as the cost of recycling, Average replacement projects save 80% or more in maintenance cost.













4. Reduce Ecological Impact:


Carbon Dioxide:


In 2008, the United States average emission rate was 1.33 pounds of carbon dioxide produced for every kWh of electricity consumed. The chart below shows how much carbon can be reduced by using LED technology.













Mercury:


Along with carbon dioxide, mercury is emitted with every kWh consumed, Additionally, since most industrial lamps contain mercury, some is released into the environment if not properly recycled. the statistic used by the USGBC in their LEED cirteria picograms of mercury per mean lumen-hour. this measurement takes into account the brightness of the lamp and its rated life.A rating of below 90 earns LEED credit.












5.LED Provides better light:


Color Rendering Index ( CRI )


CRI is a measurement that determines how accurately light reflects the actual colours of the object it is illuminating.

On a scale from 1-100, which 100 being the highest, LED light score 80-85, MH scores 65 while HPS scores 21.


Correlated Color Temperature ( CCT )


CCT is measured in degree Kevin and measures the brightness of the source, with 5000K being equal to daylight, which is  the most widely used

LED Color Temperature, This account for the white light that is seen with LED lamps as opposed to the yellow of  high pressure sodium.
