LED Lighting: The Advantages Far Outweigh The Disadvantages

LED lighting advantages

Around the world, and we know that the UK is no exception, the adoption of LED lighting has delivered efficient lighting solutions with low carbon footprints and energy consumption. As up to 40% of a property’s electricity usage is through lighting, LED lighting cost reductions are swift to impact on profit and loss for companies and private bill payers. The technology and the market continues to develop.

Many local authorities and company leaders are keen to make lighting cost reductions whilst ensuring safety and visibility levels are at their optimum levels. LED lighting achieves objectives outstandingly. Denbighshire and Norfolk’s councils are the latest to take the leap towards more efficient lighting solutions.

The majority of clients appreciate LED lightings low energy, low carbon footprint, high performance, enhanced lifespan and lighting cost reductions.

Today, white LED’s are used in products from car lights to cameras.

For every lighting change, there’s always been a critic. Infrequently, there is an article published in the media about the negative impacts that LED lightinghas had on a person, however, the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages.

The use of terms like “torture” and “ruin the atmosphere” and “harsh lighting of a prison yard” sound dramatic and make excellent copy for editors but they counter the legion of positive reviews about LED lighting.

It could be argued that as humans don’t necessarily adapt to change fluidly, their resistance to safety enhancing white and blue LED lighting is because they’ve grown accustomed to the dull sodium based lighting and prior to that mercury based lighting, which have been in use for decades. Sodium was unwelcome to some users after mercury’s dominance.

Think of it in these terms: Some people like to use a standard mobile phone, others leap to own a smartphone. A standard phone user may not like the smartphone products or benefits because they’re different, a change in processes may be needed from the familiar. Not everyone sees the advance as an opportunity. It’s the same with LED lighting.

Wherever you stand on LED lighting products and their widespread adoption in internal and external applications, we’re happy to discuss the plethora of pros and few cons with clients.
