How long will your LED lights last? | LED lamp life

LEDs are known for their long-lasting light sources. However, a common question is: How long will your LED lights last? This article will describe the lifespan of LED lighting, the factors that affect it, and provide some maintenance recommendations.

Lifespan of LED lights:

Lifespan of LED lamps While some numbers look attractive to customers, 5, 10, 17 or even 20 year lifespans. But these can be misleading. But by comparison, traditional incandescent bulbs typically only have a lifespan of 1,000 to 2,000 hours, and fluorescent bulbs typically last between 8,000 and 15,000 hours. This also makes LED lights a durable and affordable option.

Factors affecting longevity:

Temperature: LED lights are sensitive to high temperature, and LED lights are the best choice in environmental conditions such as air humidity (should be below 80%) or ambient temperature (should be between -20°C and 30°C). Exposure to high temperature and high humidity or cold and low temperature environment will greatly shorten the service life. Therefore, pay attention to heat dissipation and ventilation when installing LED lights to ensure proper temperature control. Of course, LEDRHYTHM has lighting solutions for various harsh environments, including high temperature, low temperature, corrosion, dust and other harsh environments.

Power supply: As an example if your power supply produces 50 watts and you install a 12 watt light fixture, the light fixture may be overloaded and damaged. So using an incompatible wattage or voltage rating will damage the circuit faster.

Frequency of use and working environment: According to different use environments, you should choose a lamp that suits you, because frequent switching and frequent starting may have an impact on life. In addition, the lamp should be turned off when not in use. Keeping it on will reduce the service life. It is recommended to install a sensor on the lamp.
