By choosing LED signs or by upgrading to LED from neon or incandescent, you can save up to 90% in energy costs. LED signs are energy efficient; they reduce energy costs and also decrease the amount of CO2 emissions compared to any other light source. This not only makes your customers more environmentally friendly by reducing their carbon footprint, but as energy costs continue to climb, your customers cost savings will continue to multiply.
Signal-Tech compared the energy costs of the different illumination sources for an open/closed sign and for the red/green signal. The results were impressive, proving that annual energy costs savings for a LED open/closed sign could save up to $140 per sign and a LED red/green signal can save over $50 per signal.
Signal-Tech's LED signs have a life span of over 100,000 hours and are backed by our warranty. We stand behind our products using high quality components, and we improve the performance and life expectancy by:
To get a perspective on the energy costs, the chart on the left compares open/closed signs in three different illuminations: Incandescent, neon sign, and LED. The annual operating costs of the incandescent, neon and LED sign were: $145.07, $126.14 and $4.20, respectively. The LED sign with a mere $4.20 in annual operating costs saves $144.87/sign compared to incandescent and $121.94/sign compared to neon.
In the chart on the right, is a comparison of the red/green signal. We used the TCI signal, which has incandescent lamps, and the TCIL signal, which has LED light engines. The annual operating cost for the incandescent signal is $55.71 and the LED signal only costs $5.26/year. Signal-Tech's LED signal also has easy maintenance because just like an incandescent lamp, the LED light engine can screw into any medium sized socket. So the TCIL not only saves on energy costs and lasts longer, but it is just as easy to maintain as any other incandescent signal.
