What Are The Differences Between LED Lighting Vs Fluorescent Tubes

LED fluorescent tubes offers benefits such as a higher energy efficiency than Compact fluorescent lamps and fluorescent tubes, lower power consumption, lower maintenance costs and longer lifetime, durability and brighter light output than conventional fluorescent lighting. 

LED lighting is slowly filling the residential and business lighting market place with such innovative products as LED T5 and LED T8 Tubes, flexible strip lighting, and LED down Light bulbs.

Although fluorescent tube lighting is more energy efficient than incandescent lighting, it is still an energy wasting device when compared with LED lighting. Switching to LEDs could cut your energy bill in half, while still keeping all of the brightness, and no fluorescent flickering! 

Even with the most advanced state of the art CFLs, fluorescent lighting accounts for a high percentage in existing lighting all over the world, switching from fluorescent lighting into LED lighting can greatly reduce the global lighting power consumption.

LED ones are more energy efficient than fluorescent lighting due to the high efficacy of LEDs. LEDs for interior lighting have already broken the efficacy record of 100 lumen per watt, while fluorescent lighting only has an efficacy of around 60 lumen per watt. 

LED has a power factor of 0.9, which means most of the power is converted into light, but when fluorescent lighting works, a huge amount of power is converted into heat which will be dispersed finally. LED lighting consumes only 30% energy as fluorescent lighting to deliver the same lumen output.

Flexible LED lighting has a much longer lifetime than fluorescent lighting since LED lighting is solid state lighting which more stable and reliable. They can last over 50,000 hors which means 17 years under normal use. Whereas fluorescent lighting only has a lifetime of around 5,000 hours, which means you have to replace them as often. Using LED lighting can greatly save your expenses which are used to buy new light bulbs and pay for the labor.

Additionally, the high quality of LED down lighting bulb is much better than that of fluorescent lighting. Fluorescent lighting is always flickering when start up, while LED lighting is quick to start up without any flickering. We all know and have seen or live with flickering fluorescent tubes on a daily basis. They've actually been proven to cause headaches, due to the micro-pulse wavelength they emit. Using LEDs can reduce workplace strain, headaches, and increase efficiency, with workers at top performance, minus the migraines from CFLs!

In contrast, they are solid state lighting which does not contain any filaments that could break (like incandescent) or hazardous materials like CFLs. Someone may say that the upfront costs of LED lighting is too high, due to the technology used to achieve such a high lumens per watt (efficacy) rating, it is true. 

But, think about the long term energy savings, and savings you will get from not needing to replace the lights, for up to 5 or 10 times as long, depending if the light replaced was incandescent or fluorescent. Either way, the more high energy halogen, incandescent, or fluorescent lights you replace, the more money you will save every month.

LED super bright lighting lamps will replace fluorescent lighting since it meets the requirements of sustainable development, incandescent lighting, because of energy savings and durability, and halogen lighting due to the heat, safety factor, and of course energy usage! Go green and truly be eco-friendly with LED lighting.
