Green RVing

Go Green with LED lighting 

LED lights represent the newest breakthrough in lighting technology. LED lights are an energy efficient, low-maintenance, cost effective, and versatile solution for anyone looking for dynamic yet eco friendly lighting in their RV or motorhome. We’re excited and LED lighting and we know it will give your RV the edge you’re looking for.

 

The reasons why LED lights are right for you and your RV:

Long-lasting – LED bulbs last up to 10 times as long as compact fluorescents, and up to 50 times longer than typical incandescent globes.


More efficient - LED light bulbs use only 2-17 watts of electricity (1/3rd to 1/30th of Incandescent or CFL). LED bulbs used in fixtures inside your RV save electricity, remain cool and save money on replacement costs since LED bulbs last so long. Small LED flashlight bulbs will extend battery life 10 to 15 times longer than with incandescent bulbs.


Cost-effective - although LEDs are initially a little more expensive, the cost is recouped over time and in battery savings. The cost of new LED bulbs has gone down considerably in the last few years, and is continuing to go down. Today, there are many new LED light bulbs for use in your RV, and the cost is becoming less of an issue. 

Produce cleaner colours of light - LEDs are very well known for their ability to produce light waves at very specific frequency ranges. This makes the colours produced by LEDs the most vivid and vibrant of all light forms.

Compact size - LED Light bulbs can be as small as 2mm making them ideal for fitting into hard to reach and compact areas.

Safety – Most LED lights operate at low voltage so are cool to touch and much safer to handle during installation and maintenance. They and can also be exposed to rain and snow.

Durable - since LEDs do not have a filament, they are not damaged under circumstances when a regular incandescent bulb would be broken. Because they are solid, LED bulbs hold up well to the vibrations, jarring and bumping of RVing.

Cool - these bulbs do not cause heat build-up; LEDs produce 3.4 btu's/hour, compared to 85 for incandescent bulbs. Common incandescent bulbs get hot and contribute to heat build-up your RV. LEDs prevent this heat build-up, thereby helping to reduce your RV air conditioning costs.

Mercury-free - no mercury is used in the manufacturing of LEDs. This means that manufacturing and recycling these products is an excellent solution for a greener environment.

Focus - LED lights can be designed to focus light in ways that enhance your RV. Incandescent and fluorescent lights need reflectors and shades to point light in a certain direction.

Dimming - LEDs can very easily be dimmed.

On/Off resistant - LEDs do not burn-out with frequent on-off cycling and light up very quickly each time.

Slow failure - LED lights dim over time compared to the burn-out of incandescent bulbs.

Light for remote areas and portable generators - because of the low power requirement for LEDs, using solar panels becomes more practical and less expensive than running an electric line or using a generator for lighting in remote or off-grid areas. LED light bulbs are also ideal for use with small portable generators which homeowners use for backup power in emergencies.
