An LED Lesson: Fluorescent vs. LED Qualities

We’ve got a lot to digest so let’s dive into this post. Below are some important differences between fluorescent and LED fixtures:

  1. Linear Fluorescent VS linear LED


Both fluorescent and LED are a great source of power saving against fixtures that are equipped with Halogen or incandescent bulbs. You will save on your consumption either way. You will create less heat than the other version of lighting products. They both last for a long time comparing to other products.

So, then the real question is…why go with LED rather than fluorescents?

The answer is simple: LED is the better choice if you want GREATER savings on consumption, less heat generation, an even LONGER life span, VERY little maintenance, and recyclable at the end of its use.

LEDs produce almost no UV rays and no chemicals. A better quality of light, better colour management, higher CRI and greater flexibility in custom lighting design, LEDs are definitely the best method of lighting today.

  1. Do we need LEDs for a sustainable energy model?


For a sustainable energy model, we need to reduce the consumption of our electricity by reducing the load size. Based on researches done by Department of energy in United States the use of LEDs can save them tons of electricity!  in the United States. By 2027, widespread use of LEDs could save about 348 TWH (Terra Watt per hour, compared to no LED use) of electricity: This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today’s electricity prices.

This saving with LEDs is directly available for all consumers. Either direct personal savings or by cost reduction for public usage as a form of tax reduction. With LEDs, everybody is a winner! The only thing that we should add to this equation is that to achieve the greatest savings and longevity of LED products, you should always consider the quality and ask questions. You should ensure that these products are going to be there for a long time.

Stay clean and green,
