Switching to LEDs
3 good reasons for LED lights
2014-06-06 | Taking out halogen bulbs, putting in LED lights – this is the motto at ebm-papst Korea. This summer, the Korean subsidiary will completely switch their warehouse lighting to LEDs. Eui-Soo Kim is in charge of the converting project and identifies the three main reasons for switching to LED lights:
1. Energy efficiency
LED lights have extremely low power consumption. Compared to conventional lighting, they allow an energy saving of up to 85%.
2. Long service life
Depending on use, LEDs can last for more than 50,000 operating hours. This also means lower maintenance costs and less waste.
LED lights contain no hazardous or harmful substances such as mercury or lead. Moreover, as their power consumption is low, they cause a lot less CO2 emissions than conventional light sources.
