1. Long Term Cost: It is true that LEDs are more expensive initially than fluorescent and compact fluorescent lights, but they can provide huge potential savings over the long term. While incandescent lights last for a paltry 800 to 1500 hours, and fluorescent lights last up to 8,000 hours, LEDs can last up to a staggering 50,000 hours. This can provide substantial savings as a result of fewer replacements needing to be bought.
2. Maintenance: Due to the longer lifespan of an LED bulb over a fluorescent tube, maintenance and replacement times can be reduced markedly when LEDs are used. The amount of time spent replacing bulbs, especially in larger buildings, can be counterproductive.
3. Noise: Fluorescent tubes tend to emit clicking and popping sounds intermittently, and they can produce a low buzzing sound after being used for a significant amount of time. Since fluorescent tubes are often used in offices and working environments, this can be distracting. LEDs do not have this problem and operate silently.
4. Environmental Impact: Fluorescent lights by their very nature must contain a small amount of mercury. This metal and vapor is extremely hazardous to both humans and the environment. If it is ingested or inhaled it can cause serious complications and as such must be disposed of safely. LEDs are completely safe and do not contain such poisonous materials.
5. Instant On: LEDs light up as soon as an electrical current is passed through them. Fluorescents do not do this and require time to flicker before staying on.
6. Energy Consumption: LEDs consume far less power than fluorescent tubes. LEDs use less electricity which is better for the environment and your pocket.
7. Low Heat: While fluorescent tubes emit less heat than incandescent and halogen bulbs, they still produce much more than LEDs. LEDs are lukewarm to the touch and therefore carry less risk of causing an accidental fire or burn.
