Frequently Asked Questions about LED Sports Lights

With LED light technology taking the world by storm, a lot of people have been asking questions,which is understandable.Obviously, a question shared is often easy to solve.So We’ve rounded up some of the most frequently asked questions about LED sport lighting.

Are LED Lights Considered Good for the Environment?

Yes, LED lights are better for the environment than traditional light sources as with proper heat management they can last much longer. LEDs deliver the same amount of lumens as traditional luminaires, but with less energy consumption. For example, a 400W HID luminaire can typically be replaced by a 150W LED luminaire and still deliver the same lumens.

Do LED Light Bulbs Save Money?

Yes, LED lights save money on energy consumption. They produce a higher rate of lumens per watt, meaning they are much more efficient and use less energy to produce the same amount of light.

Do LED Lights Burn Out?

Yes, all light sources will eventually burn out. However, LED sources typically last much longer than traditional light sources. They usually have a longer L70 rating. For example, a quality LED luminaire will have at least an L70 rating of 50,000 hours, while an HID luminaire may only have a rating between 6,000 to 15,000 hours.

What is color temperature?

The color temperature of LED lighting, which is measured in Kelvins (K), describes the color of the light. The lower the number, the less blue the light will seem. The higher the number, the cooler the light will be. For a light close to daylight, look for a light in the 5000K range.

What is the difference between Lumens and Watts?

When measuring lighting, you will see both Lumens and Watts as measurements. Lumens measures the total light output, which also means the brightness of the light. Watts measure power consumption. LED lights are considered efficient because they deliver a high number of Lumens with just a few Watts of energy consumption.

How Much Money Can You Save If You Convert To LED Lights?

Up to 80%!If you’ve been spending $100 on lighting expenses, the fact that LEDs reduce energy consumption by almost 80% means that your lighting expenses will also reduce proportionally.

Hence, an 80% reduction in power costs. Meaning, you’ll only be spending ~$20 on lighting with LEDs.

Why Are LEDs Considered Green Technology?

First of all, LEDs are very eco-friendly.That means that they do not contain any toxic or hazardous materials such as mercury and phosphorus.

Also, LEDs reduce the amount of waste because of their durability.Picture this:One LED fixture can outlive 50 incandescent bulbs. That means using Incandescent light fixtures contributes to waste as well as higher demand for electricity.Another green quality about LEDs is that they have a very small – negligible – carbon footprint.

Basically, they don’t contribute to the world’s carbon emissions; hence slowing the rate of global warming and environmental degradation.

There’s no doubt that LEDs are the future of the global lighting industry.
