Frequently Asked Questions LED
. How does LED technology compare to the traditional options?
What can I expect in terms of energy demand?
It is estimated that on average, the transition to LED can result in the reduction of electric energy consumption by 50-60%. When replacing incandescent lamps the reduction reaches 90%.
The savings from the electric bill will be proportional to the drop in consumption. For example, in a typical household with 8 incandescent light sources, operating 5 hours a day, the savings will be around 170 Euros per year.
How much does the switch to LED cost?
The expenditure for the transition is determined by the lighting requirements of the space as well s the kind and number of lamps in the current system. The studies that Clarus has performed have shown that the investment for the shift is depreciated within 5-12 months. After that period, the savings are clear profit. The depreciation time of the investment is affected by the operating time of the lights. For example, in an underground parking space with 80 lamps operating 24 hours per day, the depreciation is estimated at 5 only months.
How long do LED light sources last?
Between 30.000-50.000 hours. A typical incandescent lamp burns out in less than 1.000 hours. ECO lamps last 8.000 -10.000 hours and fluorescent lamps less than 30.000 hours. An incandescent lamp that operates 6 hours per day will have to be replaced once every 1-2 years, while a LED will last 10-12 years.
What structural changes do I have to make?
LED lamps can be used everywhere, simply replacing the old ones. No changes to the fixtures are required. Their installation is very straightforward.
Our company offers a detailed examination of every case, in order to find the optimal solution. Clarus works with various suppliers and is capable of providing the customer with the most beneficial option as well as assuming part of the risk with regard to the depreciation time of the investment.
Is LED technology friendly to the environment
The basic ecological advantage of LED technology is their significantly reduced electric energy demand. This means less CO2. emissions. LED lamps don't contain Mercury or Cadmium and are therefore harmless during operation. Furthermore, their less frequent disposal means reduced waste (one LED lamp is discarded for every 50 incandescent ones).
