Save money when using LED lighting. It’s really that simple. Using LEDs can help ease those high energy bills by saving on energy consumption—using around 10% of the energy consumed by halogen/filament bulbs—and by outlasting the life of fluorescent or incandescent lighting significantly. On average, incandescent lights last for 1,200 hours and fluorescents about 8,000, but LEDs beat both with anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 hours of life span depending on what LED it is. To put that into perspective, when used consistently for 12 hours a day, a 50,000 LED can last more than 11 years. That means better return on investment and low maintenance costs. Trust us, your wallet will thank you. There are also rebates and tax credits available for switching to LEDs >>
Environmentally friendly LEDs are very green. For starters, they contain no hazardous materials or a filament of any kind, as well as no toxic mercury, phosphorous or lead. Whether it is a retrofit or new build, business or home large or small, you will be decreasing your carbon footprint on our planet. LEDs do not produce light that flows in all directions so there isn’t any wasted heat or light like other bulbs. This means that their high energy efficiency reduces power consumption and power plants put less waste into the environment. With the long life span of your LEDs, the impact of manufacturing, packaging, and shipping is reduced, and when the LED’s life does finally run out, you can expect even less waste since LEDs are recyclable. You win, the planet wins.
Better light is another advantage to using LEDs. There’s light and then there’s high quality light. LEDs emit a wide variety of colour temperatures and will consistently distribute light without any flicker, hum, or colour change. LEDs give you instant, full illumination and can be used in almost any environment or lighting situation. If you are looking for a certain colour temperature, LEDs are available in full spectrum. With their compact size, ease of installation, dimmable options, and directional properties, you have more freedom to devise new lighting solutions. Make your lighting work for you, not the other way around.
Inside or outside use is important, especially in the North. Unlike other lighting options, LEDs have no sensitivity to low temperatures or humidity and can operate effectively in extremely cold environments. When transporting and installing, brittle incandescent and fluorescent lights can easily shatter. LEDs are not made of glass and have no filaments to break or burn off, so they can withstand electrical fluctuations, shock, vibration, and a bit of jostling with no problem. The LED’s we carry at Polar Energy are built for and work very well in all the rugged and extreme weather conditions Canada has to offer.
