Compared with large household appliances such as refrigerators and air conditioners, LED strip lights are very energy-saving appliances. LED is made of semiconductor materials into light-emitting diodes to directly convert electrical energy into light energy, and its electro-optical efficiency is very high. 95% of LED energy is converted into light, and only 5% is converted into heat.

Are LED Strip Lights sustainable?
In our daily life, paying attention to environmental protection is one of our responsibilities. That means it’s important that whether the materials we use are environmentally friendly. Led strip lights are sustainable in three aspects.
►Led strip lights are more energy-saving, it is 80% more energy efficient than traditional incandescent lamps. Compared with traditional lights, the energy of led strips requires less. Less energy means less consumption. While you are using one incandescent lamp, others can use multiple led strip lights with the same energy.
►Non-toxic materials used in the production of led lights. It won’t be harmful to human health. Some traditional lights are not friendly to environment because of the toxic materials. The use of non-toxic materials greatly improves the possibility of sustainable development.
►Led strip lights have a long lifespan, which can reach to 50,000 hours. The life of the LED is related to the LED chip and drive. LED long life is because it will not cause the problem of filament fusing. During the use of an led strip light, you may have replaced several traditional lamps. This is enough to prove that the led strip lights have a longer service life and more durable than traditional lamps.
Choosing led strip lights is not only a sustainable choice, but also a healthy choice. A good environment is the basis for our survival. And the environment is better, we can live better.
