    Replace Your Outdoor Fluorescent Sign Lighting With LED

    Replacing your fluorescent signs with LED signs is an excellent idea for various reasons. For example, did you know that fluorescent bulbs last for 10,000 hours on average? In contrast, LED lights last for 50,000 hours or more depending on their level of brightness. Consequently, the rate at which you replace your signs will reduce drastically if you switch to LED lighting.

    Ideal For Creative Signage

    In most cases, a transparent film sleeve is necessary if you want to change the color of fluorescent lights. In contrast, LED signs come in different base colors including red, blue, green, and amber. You can blend these colors to produce numerous other colors without using a filter. Therefore, LED lights encourage creative interplays with colors generating interest in your signs. They are particularly useful during holiday seasons where pomp and color attract seasonal shoppers.

    Reduce Your Energy Cost

    A fluorescent sign uses 256 watts of electricity on average while emitting 1024 BTUs per hour. In contrast, a LED sign uses 100 watts on average while emitting 340 BTUs per hour. Therefore, fluorescent lighting uses more energy than LED lights do. It also emits more heat than LED signs.

    Switch to LED lighting to put a stop to this unnecessary consumption of energy in your home. Your monthly costs for electricity will reduce significantly after this switch takes place.

    Eco-Friendly

    Did you know that a fluorescent bulb contains three to forty-six milligrams of mercury? Unfortunately, mercury leads to devastating effects on the human body including the nervous system. However, it is highly unlikely that the mercury in fluorescent bulbs would harm as you use the sign.

    Still, improper disposal of broken fluorescent lights affects the environment adversely. In contrast, LED signs are eco-friendly because they don’t contain mercury or greenhouses gases. Moreover, they don’t emit harmful UV rays into the environment.
