What is the Lifespan of LED Tubes?
When we talk about LED tubes, we mainly talk about efficiency and energy savings. Still, it would help if you also kept in mind that LED tube technology is characterized by its long lifespan.
This makes them the best option for any project, be it your home, work, or everything you want to do.
One of the most important advantages is its savings, equivalent to more than 50%. Additionally, its coverage can illuminate different small, medium, or large spaces, without increasing your spending.
The lifespan of LED tubes is 40,000 to 50,000 hours, which increases their use time compared to fluorescent lights, making them a more economical alternative in the long run.
Types of LED Tubes
You must remember that there are four types of LED tubes: T8, T5, 2G11, and G10q. Each one gives us different options: The T8 are exceptional for use in small industries or workshops since they are clearer and more versatile to locate anywhere.
Thus, the T5 also has similar functionality to the T8, but it is more efficient for use in small places and has less light intensity.
If you want to illuminate large industrial spaces or in your company, the 2G11 is the best option because it has four pins (the others have two pins), which gives greater efficiency, power, and more resistance to shocks or vibrations.
And finally, if you want to illuminate places such as the kitchen or a workroom, the G10q is your option because its 360º circular shape generates a light expansion that adapts to these needs.
Another essential characteristic that prolongs their useful life is that they are not affected by high and low temperatures, so they can be adapted to all environments without exhausting their capacity.
So, if you have already decided to change your old fluorescent for an LED, you must make the correct installation of these lights.
Replace your old tube, ensure the ballast is compatible with your new LED tube and always remember to read the manufacturer’s specifications carefully. Once this is ready, start enjoying new lighting in your space!
