Why switching to LED
How many light bulbs you had to replace in the last 6 months for you business?
Are you tired of spending a huge amount of money on your energy bill?
At ARC we believe that LED bulbs are the most versatile ones, capable of leading the way in efficiency and durability. Reason more to start doing some research for your business and really considering about switching to LED.
But why buying LED bulbs makes more sense?
Brian Horne, Senior Insights & Analytics Consultant at Energy Saving Trust said:
"LEDs use less energy and cost you a lot less in the long run. There is not a huge difference in price, they last longer so you don't need to keep buying replacements. It make complete sense to buy LED bulbs."
Without wanting to go too much scientific, let's find out what LED is.
LED stands for "light emitting diode", a type of solid- state lighting (SSL) technology, meaning that it emits light from a piece of solid matter. In this case, a two- lead semiconductor.
These materials are extremely important and selected specifically because each one of them is able to affect how the color of the light appears.
Let's talk now about the several advantages that LED offers over traditional light bulbs and what makes LEDs so beneficial!
1. Long Life
A traditional bulb lasts around two years, based on a 4 hours' daily use, around 2000 hours.
An LED under the same condition can last for 10 years or longer. Reason why replacing traditional bulbs with an LED equivalent could cut your energy costs by half.
2. Energy efficiency
Because of the materials they are made with, LEDs are capable of turning about 70% of their energy into light. This makes them much more efficient than other "traditional" bulbs, which waste a lot of energy by turning it into heat.
3. High brightness and intensity
LEDs are well known for emitting an extremely high level of brightness.
4. Color Range
With LEDs is the diode that is changed to alter the color of the emitted light, so you can trust you won't have to worry about it fading or burning out.
You can place a LED lightning pretty much everywhere, due to their durability and reliability- in colder temperature, difficult weather, outdoors or indoors. And guess what, LEDs operate at full brightness from the moment you flip the switch.
If this wasn't enough to make you think about switching to LED lightning, we left the main reason at last.
For every traditional bulb you switch you could save around 5kg of CO2 emissions.
If just all homes in Britain switched to 100% LED bulbs, we could save 1.7 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.
And we are going to repeat that again so it sticks in your minds.
1.7 millions tonnes of CO2 emissions in a year just with homes. Now imagine if every business, which emissions are three times bigger than homes, makes this switch.
As we always say, we only have one planet and every decision can make the difference.
Make the change by choosing LED lightning for you business.
