We often times have new or existing clients inquiring about the differences and associated benefits of LED vapor tight lighting versus other traditional lighting selections. To support our online community who might be asking these similar questions, we’ve put this article together to highlight three major benefits that LED vapor tight lighting offers over other traditional lighting selections.
What Is LED Vapor Tight Lighting?
LED vapor tight lighting is designed to withstand harsh indoor or outdoor weather conditions such as humidity, water, dust and or other erosive weather conditions. These lighting fixtures are sealed and gasketed to not only increase the lifespan of the lighting fixtures, but to also drive up total energy savings and cost savings.
Increased energy savings is one of the most common benefits that clients gain when choosing LED lighting over traditional incandescent lighting. As you may know, the associated energy savings from LED over incandescent is pretty spectacular. Recently, Energy.gov reported that LED lighting uses 75% less energy and can last 25 times longer than traditional incandescent lighting!
Now to build on this, LED vapor-tight lighting will further extend the energy savings of your LED lighting fixtures that are exposed to harsh weather conditions. This is due to the fact that LED vapor tight light is simply going to have a longer lifespan and perform more efficiently than non-vapor tight LED lighting. So, by opting for vapor tight lighting, a client is going to benefit from even greater energy savings over general LED lighting.
Total Cost Savings
LED vapor tight lighting can also provide clients with substantial cost savings. When clients opt for LED vapor tight lighting over generic LED lighting, they are going to benefit from at least 2 to 4 times the extended lifespan on that lighting fixture compared to non-vapor tight lighting. This in turn, is going to drive down costs in purchasing new LED lighting and drive down the associated maintenance costs in replacing the lighting fixtures more frequently.
Extended quality of Lighting
Lastly, by opting for LED vapor tight lighting, clients are going to benefit from an extended quality of lighting due to the design characteristics. LED vapor tight lighting is designed to be sealed and gasketed, protecting the lighting fixture from the elements. Over time, this will preserve the integrity of the lighting fixture whereas traditional non-vapor tight lighting will deteriorate through exposure to inclimate weather.
An example of this would be to consider traditional non-vapor tight LED lighting that is exposed to dust over several years. Overtime, dust is going to permeate into the lighting fixture and slowly degrade the lighting source. It’s a slow process but over months or years, your lighting will begin to suffer. This degradation not only leads to poorer lighting quality but also leads to more frequent lighting replacements.
Time To Act Now
So, if you are in the process of adding indoor or outdoor lighting that may be exposed to water, dust, humidity or other erosive properties, consider opting for LED vapor tight lighting. LED vapor tight lighting will not only increase your total energy savings, decrease the long term cost of ownership, but it will also reduce the headaches associated with frequent lighting replacement!
