- Ordinary incandescent lamps convert 9-10% of energy into light. Although LED convert nearly 100% of the energy they consume into light.
- When LED lamps are used for displaying fresh food, it has been proved that compared with halogen lamps or fluorescent lamps, they breed far fewer bacteria.
- If only 50% of the existing incandescent Christmas lights are replaced in the United States before and after the holidays, the potential energy cost savings will be about 17.2 billion dollars.
- The US Department of Energy estimates that the widespread use of LED in residential and commercial applications will save about 265 billion dollars in the next 20 years (yes! That’s a billion dollars!), The need to build 40 new power plants will be avoided and the demand for electricity for lighting will be reduced by 33%.
- Replace the porch lamp with LED bulb, and you will find that the number of insects in the porch has been greatly reduced, if not completely reduced! Why? Because incandescent lamps and CFL will produce a lot of ultraviolet and infrared radiation, which will attract insects.
- The whole lighting industry is promoting LED to replace incandescent lamps in various applications, but the first time LED really replaced incandescent lamps was in vehicle brake lights, signal lights and traffic lights – as early as 1987!
- LED lamps will not be seriously damaged by external impact on average. If you drop the incandescent lamp on the ground, there will be a lot of broken glass to clean. If it is CFL, it will not only break, but also must follow the mercury purification procedures recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency.
- LEDs are mercury free – at least 95% of LEDs are recyclable. This is compared with the waste design of compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), which not only contains mercury, but also generates a lot of electronic waste because of its design – CFL’s fluorescent tube part stopped working long ago in the ballast inside the tube, CFL or other electronic components have been ready. This alone will generate a lot of waste every month.
- Most residential/commercial LED A lamp manufacturers claim an average bulb life of up to 50000 hours, and newer models claim up to 100000 hours. (The service life of the filament lamp is about 1000 hours, and that of the CFL is about 10000 hours.) If this sounds impressive, it is! Consider your use of the 50000 hour variety:
If you use an LED sports light 24 hours a day, the rated life of the bulb is 6 years!
If you use the LED sports light for 12 hours a day, the rated service life of the bulb is 11 years!
If you only use the LED sports light for 4 hours a day, the rated service life of the bulb is 17 years!!!
