Switching to LED lighting will contribute greatly to the reduction in greenhouse emissions, playing a valuable part for the environment. Additionally, LED lighting is mercury-free making it safer for the environment. Fluorescent lights by their very nature must contain a small amount of mercury. This metal and vapour 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, putting users at ease while knowing that they are not contributing to pollution.
Fed up of the “buzz” from fluorescent tubes? Fluorescent tubes are notorious for being noisy, especially if they are getting old. They tend to click and pop intermittently, but most annoyingly they can produce a low buzzing sound. In a working environments this can be distracting. Well, LED’s operate silently with no annoying quirks or noises.
Turn the air-con off! Fluorescent, incandescent and halogen bulbs produce much more heat than LEDs which are lukewarm to the touch and therefore carry less risk of causing an accidental fire or burn.
