LED lights use about 50 percent less electricity than traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen options, resulting in energy cost savings, especially for spaces with lights that are on for extended periods.
Without filaments or glass enclosures, LEDs are breakage resistant and largely immune to vibrations and other impacts.
LEDs come on at 100-percent brightness almost instantly however, and with no re-strike delay. This can be advantageous following a power outage or during early morning hours.
Quality LEDs have an expected lifespan of 30,000–50,000 hours or even longer, depending on the quality of the lamp or fixture.
