A Look at Rope Lighting
LED light can be found in many different applications in many different settings; they are found on streets, in houses and apartments, in markets, and in office buildings. One type of LED light that is getting a lot of attention is the LED rope light. These work by connecting little LEDs to make a string that can be ran along any surface to add a point of focus.
There are a couple benefits to LED rope lights, in some applications they can last up to ten years and they do not give off any heat. The long life span allows the user to place the lights in more hard to reach places because they will not have to worry about replacing them for a long time. These lights are not a fire hazard, which allows them to be fit into tight spaces and along any surface.
Commercial applications are one of the biggest uses for LED rope lights. Theses lights will look good for a long time, and further more they need almost no maintenance. Investors really like the lights because they offer great quality and are very reliable. Most of the time the lights are bought up front and the value lasts long after the money has cleared.
One of the questions you will have to ask yourself is “Do I want quality or do I want a low price?” This is a basic economic dilemma most people deal with multiple time every day. For this decision you will have to look into the future and how your decision will hold up, LED lights will have value for many years to come. LED lights will cost more up front but the cost they save you on your energy bill will be seen for a long time. The saving that you get from the saving of energy could pay for the LED rope lights. LED rope lights could save you and your company as much as 10% when compared to traditional rope lights.
One example that we can use is with Christmas decorations, let’s say you have been ordered with creating a decorations for a new commercial enterprise that everyone in town will come out to see. You could choose to go with traditional rope lights to keep the cost down. If one of the lights or the whole string of lights go out your decoration could be in jeopardy.
Before making a purchases you should consider the life of each product. Traditional rope lights have a life of 25,000 hours. If we look at the same rating for LED rope lights it is 100,000 hours, this means they should technically last 4 times longer than conventional rope lights. These numbers do not look at environmental factors and traditional lights are more susceptible to these.
