5 Benefits of LED Lighting for Signs
There are 3 main choices when it comes to outdoor signage for your business and what you can get from your sign shop Kelowna: neon, fluorescent, and LED. Neon and fluorescent have been around for a long time and have a great track record, but LED signs Kelowna have become much popular for many reasons. Here are some of the benefits of LED signs Kelowna.
High quality LED lights can last from 50,000 to 100,000 hours which statistics show is 3 to 6 years longer than fluorescent and neon. They also stay brighter much longer than other bulbs as they don’t have any gases that leak out and cause the bulbs to dim.
The brightness of the bulb is really what sets LED lights apart from the others. Due to the latest and greatest technology, LED lights are completely unique and produce an extremely bright and clear light that can be seen perfectly up close and from a far. This is perfect for both day and night as it can be seen even during the day when the sun is out, and very brightly when it is dark.
Many Kelowna signs can use quite a bit of power, but LED signs only use around 10 watts of power, which in turn consumes about 80% less energy than neon signs. This means less power usage and less impact on the environment, less cost on electricity, and also shows everyone that you care about the environment.
Smaller in Size
Because LED’s don’t have any tubes, manufacturers have many more options in what size they are made. Most basic neon signs are usually3-5 inches thick, but LED signs Kelowna can be much smaller, even down to just 1 inch. An added bonus is that the smaller the size the lower the shipping and installation costs.
As mentioned above, because of the size and flexibility of LED lights you have a wider range of options when it comes to the look of you sign. You can customize anything from the look, movement, colors changes, and animation. You won’t find these options with neon and fluorescent signs. Because LED’s are not tubes but separate bulbs, they can be programmed to flash and change color independently.
