The Advantages of Oelo's Permanent LED Lighting for the Environment

We’re sure you’ve heard over and over again the praises of modern outdoor lighting. It’s benefits—mostly that it will put some cash back in your wallet—and how energy-efficient it is.

Modern Outdoor Lighting Saves You Money  

That’s all true. LED lighting converts more energy into light and less energy into heat, so it takes less energy to light them. In fact, 95% of the energy that goes into powering LEDs is converted into light, while only 5% is wasted as heat. In comparison, 95% of the energy used to power fluorescent or incandescent lighting is wasted as heat, while only 5% is converted to light. Because of this low energy usage, LEDs ultimately reduce the demand for power, which helps you put that cash back in your wallet, and reduces your carbon footprint.

Holiday Lighting Made the Switch to Safe, So Should You

Probably one of the most prevalent lighting trends to quickly make the switch to LEDs was holiday lighting. LED seasonal lighting consumes way less electricity than the old-fashioned incandescent bulbs and offers the following benefits:

  • Safer: LEDs are cool to the touch, therefore reducing the risk of combustion or burnt fingers
  • Sturdier: LEDs are not made with glass lenses. Instead, they are made with epoxy lenses that aren’t as prone to breaking when being stored.
  • Longer lasting: LED outdoor lighting can be used year-after-year for more than 15 seasons.
  • Easier to install: You can connect multiple strands of LED lighting end-to-end without overloading your wall socket.

You’re also able to recycle LED lighting when you’re finished with it, if that option is available in your area.
