Printing and Shipping Solutions is proud to announce that they are now offering LED lighting in all of their lit sign packages. If you are looking into new business signage, the new LED lights will save you literally thousands of dollars in energy and repair bills. PSS is also assisting current sign owners who have the older traditional style lighting systems in refurbishing their signs and upgrading to the new LED lights.
There are a number of reasons the new LED lighting systems are beneficial to business owners. The number one reason is long life. LED bulbs and diodes have an outstanding operational life time expectation of up to 100.000 hours. This is 11 years of continuous operation, or 22 years of 50% operation. If you leave on the LED fixture for 8h per day it would take around 20 years before you’d have to replace the LED bulb.
LED’s are different to standard lighting: They don’t really burn out and stop working like a standard light, moreover the lighting diodes emit lower output levels over a very long period of time and become less bright.
With traditional incandescent light bulbs which operate at 20% energy efficiency only, a 80% of the electricity is lost as heat. Imagine the following scenario:
If you use traditional lighting and have an electricity bill of $100, then $80 of that money has been used to heat the room, not to light it! Using LED illumination with 80% efficiency, the electricity costs would be around $20 and you have saved around $80.
Because the long life span of LED lights, also the maintenance work – think of all the work and energy it would take to purchase, stock and change the conventional light bulbs of an airport – you’ll see that you can make significant energy savings also when it comes to maintenance and replacement due to the long operational life times of LED lighting.
Many business owners are making the switch to LED and if you are interested in brighter, more energy efficient LED lighting for your business signs, contact Printing and Shipping Solutions at 816-532-5010.
