Which Works Best? Neon Or LED Sign
The way to loads of exposure is through a sound advertisement. One of the best ways to advertise is through the using of lights.
Neon and LED, both lights are equally popular throughout the world. But, majority of people don’t know the difference between both. Knowing the difference can help you save money and application of optimum strategy in the world of business.
The following article will extensively explain the differences between Neon and LED lights.
Neon is an inert gas. An inert gas is a gas which normally, doesn’t react with other elements. Inside a neon light, light is created from an artificial reaction of neon, which emit a florescent color due to release of energy.
No doubt, they are very awesome. If you compare the effect of lighting with led, hands down, neon lights all the way. It is also more likely to last as compared to led.
However, there are some points which question their reliability. For instance, neon lights are very fragile. There is a substantial risk of tube damaging, if handled by inexperienced people. They are also very expensive.
LED stands for light emitting diodes. Hundreds of thousands of led are strung together, to give a holistic effect of a powerful light.
The coolest thing, in terms of economics is that led lights are cheaper than neon lights. They are energy efficient and run only on 24 volts, compared to 15,000 volts of a traditional neon bulb.
The cons of led include the tediousness to fix a malfunctioning diode. It is extremely difficult to rectify a single ‘bad’ diode, since it requires manual fixation. LED lights are often poorly optimized for movement. In order for their good functionality, they ought to be fixed at a permanent place. They also lack the ‘glowing’ effect of a neon light.
What Should I Get?
It all depends upon you. If you have a larger area to cover, go for led lights since they are cheaper in terms of buying and easy on electricity. Normally, LEDs are 10% cheaper than neon lights. But it is important to ask a fundamental question.
Should I ignore the monetary value? I mean…Its only 10 percent.
Investing 10 percent more will give you powerful neon lights. We agree that they are heavy on electricity surcharge, but their aesthetic glowing effects make them a more popular choice for advertisement. Also, it is important to know that the 10% margin comes if you buy neon lights at a bulk price. If you want to light up a small place, the price of both commodities would most probably be equal.
NOTE: The fragile factor we mentioned in the start of the post. It doesn’t matter much because most neon signs these days have ‘open circuit protection.’ This means that, even if the tubes are damaged, current will automatically stop flowing to prevent any unfortunate accidents.
Because of tempting security features and prominent displays, neon are much, much popular among the buyers, as compared to LEDs.
