LEDs versus Incandescent Bulbs
GREEN with LED signs...an energy and cost-efficient
way to attract attention.
LED displays are
significantly more energy effective than signs using incandescent or
florescent bulbs. Since they?re solid-state devices, they provide
extremely long life. Typical life expectancy of an LED approaches 11
years (100,000 hours) of constant power-on usage. LED?s also run
cooler and at a lower voltage than fluorescent and neon lamps. This
translates into reduced energy consumption and lower maintenance
costs for the user.
LED signs are significantly more cost-effective
than signs using incandescent bulbs because LEDs are much more energy-efficient.
80 percent of the energy consumed by an incandescent bulb is wasted generating heat
? not light. Incandescent bulbs also have a much shorter "light
life" requiring them to be replaced regularly, which is why so many signs with
incandescent lighting require a monthly service contact ? at an additional
expense ? to ensure bulbs are replaced in a timely manner.
LED signs have a much greater viewing
distance, especially at night, which allows your message to reach more people
for more hours of the day.
LED signs offer the advantage of long life, low maintenance,
low energy usage, low voltage and enhanced fire safety.
Consider the energy use comparison below. In this example, the upgraded sign has
more pixels than the existing incandescent sign ? increasing the viewing
distance. An LED sign would save this customer over $1,500 a month in energy
and maintenance costs. This customer could potentially lease their new LED sign
and pay less for their monthly lease payment
than monthly operating costs for the incandescent sign.
