What are LED tubes and why should we use them?

As LED technology advances, more and more people are choosing to make the switch and there is no difference when it comes to LED tubes.

From small household use to big businesses, the need to save on energy costs is getting more important. Not only do LED tubes save you money but also the time of having to replace the fluorescent tubes after the 15000hrs rated life. With a rated life of 40,000 hours (around 15 years), LED tubes are here to stay.

LED tubes have many benefits, one being they don’t contain any harmful toxins such as mercury and are therefore better for the environment. As with all LEDs they produce a lot less heat than other lamps.

LED tubes work in most temperatures unlike the fluorescents which can on occasion not light up if the temperature is too low. LEDs also have a better resistance to switching cycles than fluorescents which will often cause them to fail if constantly switched on and off. In a more domestic environment, fluorescents will begin to buzz nearer the end of their life time; LEDs will not buzz or flicker on starting up.

     LED Tube Cross Section

At Simply LED we offer a range of LED tubes with internal diffused coatings that provide 320° light output. Fluorescent tubes lose light output in the back of the fitting but with LED this doesn’t happen. We have both Warm White (3000k) and Cool White (4000k) available in 2ft, 3ft, 4ft or 5ft T8 lengths. Using the glass tube rather than the equivalent plastic found with comparable products prevents the tube from bending, warping or discolouring over time.

To put it simply the benefits of switching to LED tubes speak for themselves

· Save energy
· Long life
· Turn on instantly
· No toxins
· Silent

You may think that it will be a big job to change to LED tubes, but this is not normally the case. LED tubes come with their own starter and are designed to be a retrofit to most existing fittings. We do however advise that this is carried out by a qualified electrician.

See our range of LED tubes here or call 01494 723286 to order.

    LED lighting solutions are energy efficient and environmentally friendly. You get a huge difference in the electric bill if you use LED lighting instead of conventional incandescent or mercury lighting. This is especially so when the scale of the lighting is huge as in the case of factories and workshop floors.
