What Are the Advantages of LED Light Signs?

Jul 21, 2023

In one of our recent articles we discussed how LED Light Signs are revolutionising illuminated signage and the many benefits of this technology. Today we want to narrow down to the financial and business winning benefits they could have for your organisation.

Firstly, let’s remind you of the difference between LED light signs and standard illumination:

The Difference Between LED Signs and Standard Illumination

There are quite a few important differences between traditional illumination such as filament bulb or neon, and LED illumination; some of these are covered in the benefits below.

LED lighting is created using light emitting diodes (LEDs) which are strung closely together so that the light they emit overlaps and creates a steady source of light. The technology involved means they are lighter in weight, more energy efficient and also more reliable, as LEDs are often wrapped in their own polymer jacket to protect each diode from external damage.

What LED Light Signs Mean for Business

LED Light Signs Last for Years

Expanding on our previous article, you are guaranteed to save money with the length of time an LED lasts in comparison to traditional lighting. LEDs will typically last 2-4 times longer than standard fluorescent bulbs and 40 times longer than incandescent bulbs; Maintenance costs are therefore almost non-existent, saving you time and budget to focus on other important parts of your business.

Rugged and Low Maintenance

In the UK, especially further north, we have to deal with very changeable weather. So illuminating outdoors comes with many considerations to ensure your electrics and bulbs are protected.

LEDs run incredibly well in outdoor applications, requiring no significant protection from the elements. They run cool, contain no hazardous gasses, and they’re easy to clean. So installation and disposal is simple and hassle free! (Remember florescent bulbs require more significant consideration and at times cost when it comes to disposal)

Environmentally Friendly

One of the most important parts of business nowadays is becoming your ‘carbon footprint’… How green your company is takes up significant space in tenders, and can also affect the qualification for grants and other funding.

Changing to LED light signs is one of the simplest ways to dramatically improve your company’s carbon output (as well as save money on the incredibly high energy prices)!

LEDs use only around 10 watts of power, which is nearly 80% less than neon signage for example. And with the aforementioned lifespan of LED light signs, you won’t be replacing bulbs every few months!

Perfectly Match the Quality of Your Brand

Finally, as businesses we spend a lot of time and money on the quality and identity of our brand. So when our visual appearance can’t match our desired look it can be very frustrating…

LEDs can be used to display virtually any movement, digital flashes, colour changes, and animations you can imagine. The quality of the colour and light output means your LED light signs can match your brand perfectly, as opposed to compromising with the capabilities of traditional lighting.
