LED Lights are destined to be the lighting of the future.
With a high light output and a low energy input, they are not only efficient in energy consumption but also in light quality and durability.
Quality LED lights last up to 50,000 hours, while most incandescent bulbs burn out in less than a year.
LED light fixtures stay relatively cool (around room temperature) even when turned on for long periods of time.
LED's do not emit UV radiation and are thus safe for desktop, close-proximity applications.
LED's do not contain mercury, and so can be disposed of safely and easily.
LED's do not use ballasts which produce harmonic noise or “hum.” LED's do not produce electro-magnetic interference.
How long is 50,000 hours?
Based on hours of operation per day, here's what 50,000 hours works out to:
24 hours a day 5.7 years
18 hours per day 7.4 years
12 hours per day 11.4 years
8 hours per day 17.1 years
