Is HID Light Really Cheaper Than LED Flood Lights with Same Wattage

Time:2015/11/29  keywords:LED Flood Lights

      Most lighting products available in the market are normally civil light, while those lights with high-power are usually industrial lights.  LED Flood Lights   and HID light are both industrial lights. Prices and performance are always compared between lights with same wattage; however it is not practical in the case between LED flood light and HID light. First of all, it's not right to compare two type of light directly through wattage. In HID lights luminous energy are transformed from thermal energy which comes from electric energy, while in LED flood lights luminous energy comes directly from electric energy, which means the latter would be more energy-saving. Experimental results also show that the luminous energy given out by a 100 wattage HID light can be equaled by that of a 30 wattage LED flood light, therefore LED flood light is obviously more favorable. Secondly the prices should not be the only concern. Because one 100 wattage HID light can only use for around 3,000 hours (about 1 year), while one 30 wattage LED flood light can use for more than 50,000 hours (about 11 years). Here if the installation and maintenance bills are taken into consideration, then the gap would be even larger. From the above two reasons we can tell what a big gap between two types of lights there is, and it's concluded that buying LED flood light is a smart choice from the angle of environmentally-friendly and cost-saving.
