Are you apprehensive about the technology? There's absolutely no need to be. The technology is not new. LED is 50 years old this year, and very reliable, it is only more recently that manufacturers like CREE and Philips have been able to make LEDs powerful enough for lighting applications. Have no fear, if you can get your head around the statements below, you will be understand the LED lighting technology and your fear of the unknown will dissapear.
Can you remember, Granada TV Rentals, Redifusion, Rumbelows and Radio Rentals?
If you're of an age then I'm sure you can. But why are they no longer in existence? Because of solid state televisions that's why.
The advent of the transistor meant that valves became a thing of the past, and televisions became very reliable overnight.
LED lighting will make "bulbs and tubes" a thing of the past.
You now buy a TV because if it breaks down, it usually does it within the warranty period.
Technology has moved on, and you want to replace your old one with the latest model, but your old one is still working.
You would love to watch the football in High Definition, but your wife won't change because the old ones still works.
Spill a cup of tea down the back, that usually does the trick. ;-)
Just like the technology in your TV. LED lighting is solid state, there are no moving parts, no bulbs to burn out, and no tubes to smash.
Even better still, there's no mercury, or any other harmful substance to get rid of, so they are good for the planet twice over.
Just like your TV now. They will still be running, and will still be lit, when technology has moved even further forward.
You could just wait and wait and wait until LED lights get more and more and more and more efficient before jumping on board.
Because all the time you are "waiting" you are...
Looking back you will definitely say I should have done it sooner. You will NOT say, I should have waited. I GUARANTEE IT.
Who is going to embrace the technology and increase their operating profits first? You or your competitors?
