Why LEDs are more expensive than traditional lighting?

LEDs lighting is known for their high efficiency and durability. They last much longer than other bulbs like fluorescents and incandescent bulbs. LED lighting offers outstanding energy savings once it replaces the older lighting product.  you can evaluate energy consumption to drop by over 50%-80% when you replace incandescent lamps or fluorescent bulbs. LED products are expensive however the energy and maintenance savings provided by LED products, in the long run, is greater than other traditional bulbs.

Why LEDs are more expensive than traditional lighting
1.LED Lighting can exceed up to 80% of energy saving


LED Lighting is more efficient converting energy to better lighting and minimizing the energy wasted as heat. LED lighting offers significant energy savings regardless of its the application for commercial, industrial or residential. Generally, the commercial building uses fluorescent bulbs with consumption of 32W or 40W. Besides LED lighting available with consumption between 15W to 20W which is nearly 50% of energy saving.

 

2.LED Lighting requires a low-maintenance cost



As we know LED lighting is energy efficient with a much longer lifespan than other traditional bulbs. This quality also reduces maintenance expenses. Generally, fluorescent bulbs or HID bulbs only last around from 1000 to 10,000 hours, Whereas LED Lighting replaces them last around from 50,000 to 100,000 hours. Due to its service life, LED lighting is much cheaper than other bulbs.

3.LED Lighting improves safety


LED products are safer to handle as compared to other bulbs due to the use of glass and other fragile materials or harmful mercury material. Also, there is less risk of burn, as LED Lighting emit less heat than others.
