LED Signs And Your Business' Electric Bill

Over the past decade there's been a steady shift towards energy efficiency. More and more people are becoming aware of the carbon footprints they're leaving on the environment, and these people want to make a difference. One major step that's being taken to reduce energy expenditures is by transforming the lighting industry.

Light bulbs are widely used and come in a variety of types. You may be familiar with types such as halogen bulbs, fluorescent bulbs, and even sodium lamps. Incandescent bulbs are probably the most widely used bulbs around, but operate by using an excess amount of electricity, making them extremely hot and inefficient in saving energy.

LED bulbs are the latest innovative design to come out of the lighting industry. LEDs, or Light Emitting Diodes, have a number of advantages for everyday people as well as businesses around the world.

One reason LED bulbs have surged in popularity is due to their longevity. It's estimated that LED signs are able to live for over 10 years with continuous use. A single bulb could last as much as 20 years with eight hours of use per day. Bulbs, such as the incandescent bulb, unfortunately have a lifetime of only a fraction of an LED, and will likely need to be replaced several times with continued daily use.

For business owners, digital LED signs offer an energy efficient way to operate their establishments. With traditional lighting, such as with incandescent bulbs, a whopping 80% of the energy that's used to power the bulb is wasted through the use of heat for the light emitted. LED bulbs are extremely efficient and operate at only about 20% of the energy incandescent bulbs use. Because they use less energy they'll help cut monthly expenses. They'll also help make maintaining lighting much more convenient - longer lifetime means less need to stock and replace bulbs.

If you're a business owner or homeowner, utilizing LED bulbs for your lighting needs is a great idea. For businesses, LED business signs can be operated on low energy, and won't need to have their bulbs constantly replaced. Both homeowners and businesses can expect LEDs to provide a flexible, convenient, durable, and eco-friendly way to provide lighting.
