The LED Bulb has up to 100,000 hours of life expectation, that would be the equivalent to around 11 years worth of operational life, a staggering difference from the 1 year life of standard incandescent bulbs. They do not just burn out like regular light bulbs, but their brightness decreases over an extended period of time. Due to LEDs longevity it also decreases the maintenance in lighting by a significant amount, as well as decreasing material and production.
Due to their higher efficiency, LEDs are designed to direct light to a desired spot, there is no need for other gadgets to achieve this result.The traditional light bulb functions at 20% efficiency, whereas the LED bulb has 80%-90% energy efficiency. LEDs are praised for their ability to light up to their full brightness right away. Flick the switch, and voila! Additionally, frequent switching on and off does not affect their life span.
LED lights are 100% recyclable and toxic-free, compared to conventional light bulbs that contain numerous materials dangerous to our environment. LED bulbs are fully operational on low-voltage power. They can be connected to solar-energy sources which is great in remote or rural settings. Since LEDs do not emit UV rays and almost no infrared light, they are the perfect lighting choice for products and materials that would be affected, for instance museum pieces.
Considering the composition of LEDs, they can sustain vibrations, rough weather patterns and more. They are great for outdoor lighting, even at construction sites.
As already mentioned, LEDs are fully operational under extreme temperatures, whether it is a roaring Canadian winter or a scourging hot summer, they are the best choice for outdoor illumination.
Swapping out your old, inefficient bulbs for longer-lasting, highly efficient, cost-effective LED bulbs is easier than ever with the vast multitude of options available today. VantageNRG provides efficient, effective and long lasting solutions to address key lighting infrastructures.
It has become a well known fact that lighting now accounts for approximately 40% of energy consumption globally. The major energy consumers consist of roadway, parking lot & industrial lighting, as these are usually high-wattage lights that operate upwards of 12 hours a day, 365 days a year. Take that number and multiply it by over thousands of lights, the energy consumption and its related costs – financial, environmental and political – are staggering.
Equally important to the financial benefits are the environmental and health benefits switching to LED provides. There is a global movement to address the serious issue of Light Pollution which has been proven to have detrimental effects on human health, nocturnal wildlife and ecosystems. Public, outdoor lighting (ie Street lighting) is one of the primary contributors to Light Pollution and is therefore a primary target for emerging “Dark-Sky” policies. VIVIX LED outdoor lighting is fully Dark Sky Compliant and achieves a Zero Up-light rating.
LED fixtures can can be programmed or adjusted to match the dynamic range and intensity of daylight.
Containing red, green, blue, and white LEDs a system can create any color or different hues of white light, from warm candlelight to a cool blue sky color.
LED lighting fixtures, as a digital light source, can be controlled with dimmers, push-button devices, wireless touchscreens, smart phones, advanced software / hardware solutions, and building management control systems. VantageNRG offers a full range of lighting control systems that will provide you with the freedom to realize your unique vision – whether you’re lighting a countertop with a single white-light fixture, or mounting a building-covering display that incorporates tens of thousands individually controllable full-color LED nodes.
Because LEDs emit light at precise wavelengths they are perfect for medical/health benefit applications. We are only just understanding how light levels and colors affect people — the intricacies of the interaction between lighting and our circadian rhythms. From both a “green” and health benefit perspective, the transformative potential of LEDs lies not only in their controllability but in their inherent efficiency.
