Ever since the Canadian national efficiency standards for general service lighting came into place in 2012, industries are more interested in ways to upgrade their illumination without sacrificing light quality. Industrial LEDs in Grande Prairie are a big part of the new shift toward energy-efficient, environmentally friendly light emitting diode technology. High quality LED lighting utilizes semiconductors and electricity to create brilliant directional light that illuminates the night in ways that incandescent bulbs and fluorescent tubes never did. Humless and infinitely dimmable, industrial LEDs in Grande Prairie are changing the away Canada lights up the night.
Benefits of industrial LEDs
- Compact size is ideal for space-constricted applications
- Vibration resistant
- LEDs perform well in cold conditions
- More durable than fluorescent and incandescent lighting
- No warm-up time required
- Frequent on and off is no problem
- Can produce colored light with no light-diminishing filter
- No mercury or lead
- LEDs produce no heat
- Directional light
Basic types of LED
Low-brightness LED is right for holiday lights and electronic devices. High-brightness LED lights are better suited to general industrial lighting. Industrial LEDs can be purchased as replacement bulbs that fit your existing fixtures, or they may be purchased with an integrated option which effectively replaces standard lighting fixtures.
A lifetime of industrial LEDs
In Grande Prairie, people prefer not to waste money. Natural Resources Canada measured the average lifespan for a variety of lights:
- Typical incandescent bulb = 1,000 hours
- Halogen bulb = 2,500 to 5,000 hours
- Compact fluorescent = 8,000 to 10,000 hours
- Linear fluorescent tube = 30,000 hours
- High-quality LED light = 25,000 hours to 90,000 hours or more
Energy efficiency of industrial LEDs
The majority of the energy that's consumed by industrial LED lights is turned into visible light in place of heat, infrared or ultraviolet light. Not so with halogen bulbs and incandescent lighting. Well made warm light LED lighting products may deliver more than 50 lumens per watt, while cool white LEDs can deliver up to 92 lumens per watt. In a nutshell, a lumen is the standard measure of the total quantity of visible light emitted by any source.
LED vs. halogen light bulbs
Halogen bulbs become so hot; they can start fires. In fact, many universities now prohibit the use of halogen lighting in dormitory rooms, notes Livestrong magazine. A typical tungsten halogen bulb may last 2,500 to 5,000 hours. Energy Star rated LED lights offer a minimum burn time of 25,000. That works out to around 22 years of average use. LED lighting can operate on lower voltage than traditional halogen lighting.
